Tottenham Hotspur can make it two successive Premier League wins in a row if they beat Europa League campaigners West Ham United at home when the two teams meet in North London on Sunday evening. The two teams are in the race to finish in fourth spot and they meet at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with three precious points at stake. Apart from West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers are also in the top-four race as far as this season’s Premier League is concerned.
Spurs were on a two-match winning run in the Premier League before they were beaten 3-2 at Manchester United last week Saturday with five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo netting all the three Manchester United goals at the Theatre of Dreams. Tottenham Hotspur bounced back from the United defeat with a 2-0 away win over out-of-form Brighton and Hove Albionwith goals from Cristian Romero and Harry Kane either side of the half-time break. The win over the Seagulls moved Tottenham Hotspur within three points of North London rivals Arsenal in fourth spot.
Tottenham Hotspur can make it two straight Premier League wins if they beat the Hammers at home. They can avenge their defeat against West Ham United after they were beaten 1-0 in the reverse fixture. Jamaican international Michail Antonio scored the only goal of the game to give the Hammers the three points on offer. It must be established that Tottenham Hotspur beat West Ham United 2-1 at home in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals earlier this season.
The Antonio Conte-ledTottenham Hotspur can move above both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur if they beat the Hammers who are in the Europa League quarterfinals after overcoming Spanish club Sevilla in their last 16 tie via a 2-1 aggregate win.
