Tottenham vs West Ham betting tips and predictions for the Premier League clash between two of London’s oldest rivals. Spurs have an unblemished home record since moving into their new stadium and welcome a West Ham team woefully bereft of any sort of consistency.
Kick-off time: 12.30pm
Date: Saturday 27th April 2019
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
It’s not been a great month or so for the Hammers and there’s no obvious reason why that should change any time soon come Saturday lunchtime. But this fixture has a habit of throwing up some classics, with Irons fans likely to point to the fond memory of their side’s trip to Wembley in the Football League Cup last season.
Things have a slightly different feel this time around, though, particularly with Spurs in pole position to secure third spot in the Premier League and fresh off the back of securing their place in the Champions League semi-finals. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have four victories from four matches in their plush new arena – and they haven’t conceded a single goal in that time either.
Let’s have more of the same then for our Tottenham vs West Ham predictions. You can get 9/5 on the home side winning to nil and continuing this remarkable trend.
It’s almost an unwritten rule but when Harry Kane is out injured or unavailable for any other reason, then Son Heung-Min tends to step up and fill the void. The Korean whizz scored a brace against Manchester City last week, including a fantastic strike to put his side 2-1 up after just 10 minutes.
Son has thrived this season under a more regular starting berth and has more than repaid the faith shown in him via a regular supply of goals and assists. Indeed, many were touting the 26-year-old as a feasible candidate to win the coveted PFA Player of the Year award, so impressive have his performances been.
The former Schalke attacker may have missed out on that gong but the chances are he won’t miss the target against West Ham, should an opportunity present itself. You’ll find him a best price of even money to register anytime on Saturday which you’d have to say is a fair ballpark for our Spurs vs West Ham predictions, given that his current purple patch shows no signs of slowing down.
If we are to support the notion that Spurs can continue their ‘win to nil’ streak for another match at least, then it’s only right that we back a correct score to reflect that. Since beating Crystal Palace 2-0 three weeks back, the Lilywhites have seen off Manchester City and and Brighton via a single goal and battered Huddersfield 4-0.
You would expect that West Ham make a better fist of it than the recently relegated Terriers – particularly with bragging rights very much on the line – but it’s hard to imagine the visitors winning given that they’ve taken just one point from their last four Premier League encounters.
I can see the hosts cruising this by a comfortable margin and taking another stride towards Champions League qualification, with 2-0 my preferred selection.
