Reason For West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur Predictions

  • Jose Mourinho takes charge of Tottenham Hotspur for the first time on Saturday.
  • Spurs are without a Premier League away win since January (12 games).
  • West Ham haven’t won any of their last six league games.
  • West Ham have averaged 1.33 goals per home game this season.

Major shakeup in the Tottenham dugout

Tottenham Hotspur sent shockwaves through the Premier League this week when they chose to sack Mauricio Pochettino before opting to appoint controversial Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho as his successor less than 12 hours later.

Mourinho starts his Tottenham Hotspur tenure with a trip to play West Ham in a London Derby at Saturday lunchtime, and the Spurs hierarchy will hope that the infamous new manager bounce leads to an instant spike in Premier League results for the club.

The statistics suggest that Mourinho might have to wait a little longer than this weekend for his first Tottenham win however.

Tottenham’s dreadful away record

Tottenham are without a win in 12 Premier League away matches, in a shocking sequence that stretches all the way back to late January and a run that likely played a huge part in Pochettino’s sacking.

More recently, Spurs’ league record reads just one win in seven since September overall, but beyond their grim points return, Spurs have at least managed to hold on to a certain amount of attacking threat.

Tottenham rattled the net at least once in six of aforementioned seven league outings, though their inability to keep a single clean sheet during that run shines a harsh light on their continue defensive deficiencies.

Spurs are one of six Premier League clubs still searching for their first away clean sheet of the season – and fixing their problems at the back is certain to be Mourinho’s priority between now and Christmas.

Unsurprisingly then, the rate of both teams scoring in Tottenham’s Premier League games has been high over the past couple of months – in fact, both teams registered in six of their last seven and in nine of their twelve league fixtures overall since the summer.

West Ham caught in a slump

On Saturday, Spurs will meet a West Ham team caught in a similar funk in terms of results, but like their visitors, the Irons have been posting promising BTTS figures.

Goals went in at either end in 100% of their last three home assignments and in four of West Ham’s last six league games overall, and in it’s in that both teams to score market that we feel the best value lies for Saturday’s game.

With both clubs caught in the grip of a crisis of confidence, we think a share of the spoils is the most likely eventual outcome at the London Stadium however, and with that considered, our correct score prediction settles on a 1-1 draw.

West Ham have averaged just 1.33 goals per 90 minutes at home this season, and Spurs have scored exactly one goal in each of their last four Premier League fixtures, with three of those games finishing level at 1-1.

With Jose Mourinho’s penchant for conservative tactics well established, we shouldn’t expect an overnight improvement in Tottenham’s attacking output, and the Portuguese manager will probably settle for an unbeaten start to his reign.
