Hammer show spirit but Bilic disappointed with narrow defeat

West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur – betting tips and predictions

West Ham United encounter their first London Derby of the season, when they face off against formidable Tottenham Hotspur at the London Stadium in Premier League Matchday 6 early kickoff. In Tottenham's 28 matches in 2017, the 21-year-old has played a part in 22 strikes, scoring 14, while setting up another eight.

"The Hammers" lost all three starting games in the Premier League.

But Spurs held on to claim a third win in three away games, a record that eases the pressure over their continuing problems in their temporary home at Wembley, where they have yet to win in the league.

The East London side climbed up to the 17-spot after their goalless draw with West Brom last weekend, and they also registered an impressive 3-0 win over Bolton Wanderers in the midweek League Cup game. Indeed, by the time the rest of the league kicks off, West Ham could find themselves thirteenth in the table, allowing them to finally start looking above themselves, rather than below.

Despite a promising start in which they hustled Tottenham into a number of mistakes, West Ham do not possess the defensive nous to deal with such attacking quality.




West Ham started brightest, with lone striker Javier Hernandez nearly finding an early opener. Eriksen again got on the ball, and it was Jan Vertonghen who eventually played in Alli for a close-range shot Joe Hart could only smother.

"They were mostly just up against him - and still he decided the game for them".

But in the end, those early Kane goals had done the trick for Spurs. However, Spurs seized on the home side's lack of rhythm when Andy Carroll was introduced for the injured Michail Antonio.

"Because if we are talking about his contract, the question mark about him is his fitness, about how much he is available during the season". Read on to discover the five main ways Tottenham can dominate West Ham and generate some serious momentum. "To help him is to help the team".

Alli swung in a flawless cross behind a West Ham backline caught horribly square, and Kane applied the finish with a glancing header past Joe Hart. Recent history is however on the Hammers' side as they have won their last two games against the North London side.
