At first sight, West Ham is a typical mid-table club, sitting in ninth place. The Hammers have narrowly missed out in all their matches against the current leaderboard, suffering defeats to Aston Villa (1-4), Liverpool (1-3), and Manchester City (1-3).

Brighton is the only top-half club from which West Ham has managed to secure points, triumphing with a 3-1 victory. West Ham, on the other hand, has remained unbeaten in their last five matches, drawing against Crystal Palace, securing victories against TSC and Olympiacos in the Europa League, and achieving successive wins over Burnley and Nottingham Forest. 

West Ham is mostly remembered for winning the first edition of the Conference League last season with a narrow 1-0 victory against Fiorentina in the final, marking them as a team that commands respect and serious consideration. David Moyes’ legacy as a traditional British manager, focused on counter-attacking play, shines through at West Ham. He has adeptly guided the team to a stable mid-table position, marking a successful tenure in his career.

Tottenham vs West Ham, Prediction, Odds

Tottenham’s form does not necessarily speak for itself (a draw against Manchester City and surprising losses, such as against the Wolves). Yet, last weekend’s thrilling 3-3 draw against Manchester City exemplifies the potential of Ange’s squad.

 Romero’s return to the squad will drastically improve the team’s defensive capabilities, a welcome change from the lackluster performances of Emerson Royal, who was an ill-fit as center-back in the last two games, proving to be a disastrous experiment. This defensive improvement is particularly crucial in countering the threat posed by the likes of Kudus and Paquetá, who are dangerous from either flank of West Ham’s advanced midfield.

Tottenham vs West Ham Betting Tip

A major problem for Postecoglou has been the extended absence of James Maddison, who is sidelined with an ankle ligament injury. However, a glimmer of hope has emerged in recent games with Giovanni Lo Celso stepping up, emerging as a key alternative from the shadows. Essential in chance-creation from the advanced midfield, Lo Celso is expected to supply quality chances to Son Heung-min. 

Son, known for his runs behind defenders, should capitalize on targeting the space behind Kurt Zouma, who can sometimes be too inattentive at the back. Additionally, the support of Pedro Porro, who has the pace to outstrip Palmieri, will be vital in determining Tottenham’s ability to penetrate Moyes’s defensive setup.
