Tottenham Hotspur host West Ham under the lights in North London on Tuesday evening, in a what promises to be a captivating Premier League clash in the capital.
Despite their sluggish re-start against Man Utd last week, a top five finish is still the aim for Spurs this season, while West Ham remain deeply embroiled in a relegation dogfight following their disappointing reverse at home to Wolves.
Tottenham came out on the right side of a five-goal thriller when they last faced off against West Ham in November – a fixture that kicked off the Jose Mourinho era in style in the Portuguese manager’s first match in charge.
