Tottenham come into this match on the back of some poor form which has seen them lose 4 of the last 5 Premier League matches, their only win was a 2-1 away victory at Southampton,
West Ham on the other hand are enjoying a good bit of form with just one defeat in the last 5 which includes 2 wins and 2 draws (including a win away against Newcastle and a draw at home against Manchester City).
Onto this match and Tottenham are going to be without the services of Emmanuel Adebayor after the strikers red card against Arsenal last Saturday, which reduces their attacking options with Defoe as the only recognised striker, that being said he should be ably supported by the likes of Bale, Dempsey and Dembele.
Although West Ham arrive in form they are not scoring a lot of goals, just 15 in their 12 premier league games, with Nolan the top scorer with 5 while their strikers have chipped in with just 2 goals so don’t expect west ham to come to attack.
This is a difficult game to predict simply because Spurs have the squad to be competing higher up the league but its just not clicking under AVB who seems to be struggling to get the best out of this spurs side whereas Sam Allardyce seems to be getting the very best out of on paper at least less talented group of players.
Although Spurs are a short price considering their form I fancy them to turn things around and pick up a home win against a resolute Hammers, Try a 2-0 home win (15/2 at Bet365)
Defoe has a knack of scoring against his former clubs and I can see him scoring against West Ham (5/4 with Bet Victor) for whom he played 93 times for and for the more adventurous bettors try Defoe to score 2 or more (6/1 at Bet Victor)
Defoe to score 2 or more – 6/1 (Bet Victor)
