Tottenham Hotspur will entertain West Ham United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday evening as both sides look to pick up a win in the London derby. Spurs managed to earn an impressive 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in their last league outing. Similarly, the Hammers secured a 2-0 victory over Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League. Hence, we can expect both teams to be confident about their chances of success this weekend.
Tottenham vs West Ham: Talking Tactics
Antonio Conte could set his side up in a 3-4-3 formation and will ask his players to keep a good defensive shape at the back and create enough chances to win this derby.
David Moyes will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might ask his men to soak in all the pressure and engineer a few clear-cut opportunities in the final third.
Ryan Sessegnon, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga won’t be available for selection this weekend. Otherwise, Conte has no fresh injury concerns to cope with on Sunday.
Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Doherty, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son
West Ham United
Angelo Ogbonna, Vladimír Coufal and Jarrod Bowen will definitely be sidelined for this game due to injuries. Moyes might also rest some of his players after his team went through 120 minutes of grueling football in the UEFA Europa League in midweek.
West Ham United Predicted XI
Fabianski; Fredericks, Dawson, Zouma, Masuaku; Rice, Soucek; Yarmolenko, Vlasic, Benrahma; Antonio
Harry Kane will once again be Tottenham’s best hope for a goal up top. The defensive trio of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Ben Davies will need to be at the top of their game if Spurs are to keep the opposition at bay during the 90 minutes.
West Ham United
The midfield performance of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek could play a huge factor in determining the fate of this London derby.
Up top, Michail Antonio will carry most of the goal-scoring burden for Moyes’ team.
