There is a massive London derby in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and the stakes couldn’t be higher for Tottenham Hotspur as they make the short trip to the London Stadium to take on West Ham United.
Premier League Preview
Tottenham Hotspur’s season is on the brink of falling into complete disaster, as their league form hasn’t shown any sign of improving of recent weeks. Spurs were completely outclassed in their last outing against Manchester City, as they suffered a 3-0 defeat at the Etihad, and that was their four defeat in five league games. That run of form has seen Spurs drop to ninth in the league table, and they are now in a race to save their season and achieve a European finish. There is a six-point difference between them and West Ham, and defeat this weekend could see them drop to tenth in the league standings should Arsenal pick up a win in their fixture. The pressure on Jose Mourinho has been mounting for weeks now, and it’s worth asking the question as to how long the Portuguese coach can hang on to his job if the results don’t improve.
One manager that is certainly in no danger of losing his job is David Moyes, who is at the forefront of a memorable season for the Hammers to this point. West Ham look to be in a strong position to achieve a European finish this season, and are currently sitting above Liverpool in the Premier League standings. They are level on points with Chelsea coming into this fixture, and could move into the top-four with a home win against Spurs. West Ham picked up a fourth win in six last time out, as they beat Sheffield United 3-0. Declan Rice, Issa Diop and Ryan Fredricks scored the goals in that commanding victory over the Blades.
