Spurs fancied to follow up against West Ham

Spurs fancied to follow up against West Ham

Tottenham Hotspur host West Ham United in the Premier League on Thursday for what will be both sides' second game in just three days.

Spurs won 2-0 at Swansea City on Tuesday, while West Ham came from behind to secure a 2-1 home victory over West Bromwich Albion.

The Hammers have already won at Wembley this season in the Carabao Cup when they battled back from 2-0 down at half-time to win 3-2 against Spurs.

However, Spurs did win by the same scoreline a month earlier in the Premier League, with striker Harry Kane weighing in with a couple of goals.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are 2/7 to win on Thursday, with West Ham on offer at 10/1. The draw is available at 19/4. Use this Winner Sports coupon code to access the best odds ahead of the game.

Victor Wanyama has returned to training (and came off the bench last night) but could be saved for this weekend's FA Cup tie against AFC Wimbledon, while Toby Alderweireld remains out for the home side.

West Ham's Mark Noble and Michail Antonio are still struggling with injury, while Sam Byram, Jose Fonte and Edimilson Fernandes are ruled out of the game.

Striker Diafra Sakho is also expected to be left out of the squad, amid increased speculation that he will be sold this month.

Three of the last four league and cup meetings between these two clubs have finished 3-2 - two to Spurs and one to West Ham - and the home side are 22/1 to match that scoreline this time around.

New Hammers boss David Moyes looked to have resolved his team's defensive woes with clean sheets against Chelsea, Arsenal and Stoke City, but they reverted to their old ways by conceding three against both Bournemouth and Newcastle United.

However, they dug deep to see off West Brom and are priced at 25/1 to record another 2-1 victory on Thursday.

Spurs' win at Swansea moved them into fifth place in the Premier League table, two points in front of Arsenal.

They are currently four points behind Liverpool with a game in hand and another win on Thursday would keep them firmly in the running for a Champions League spot.

Both sides are likely to be tired after Tuesday's exertions, but Spurs' superior attacking ability should see them through.

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in all of Spurs' last seven home games against West Ham, so backing it happen an eighth time in a row at odds of 10/13 could pay dividends.
