The Story So Far

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham have produced a mixed bag so far as there have been some hugely impressive results mixed in with yet more disappointment at their Wembley 'home', yielding eight points from five games.

At least Saturday's match is on the road and the bookmakers have duly taken that into account by making Spurs 13/20 favourites (Bet Victor) against a West Ham side that has just the one victory and a grand total of four points to show from their five top-flight fixtures this season.

4/7 8/13 4/7 6/10 3/5 3/5 8/13
10/3 16/5 3 3 10/3 33/10 10/3
9/2 9/2 9/2 9/2 5 5 5

Head-To-Head

West Ham do tend to raise their game for clashes with Tottenham as they beat them 1-0 at Upton Park in March 2016, which was a result that denied Spurs the chance to go top of the league for the first time since 1964, before they won 1-0 again at the London Stadium in May 2017.

This West Ham v Tottenham fixture always carries an edge as the last seven clashes have witnessed 29 yellow cards and four reds (4.7 cards per game) and their two matches alone from last season witnessed 13 yellows and one red (seven cards per game).

With that in mind, over 45 bookings points looks like a no-brainer at 17/10 with William Hill.

With West Ham in the mire and Slaven Bilic continuing to head the next manager to be sacked betting market, tempers could well flare but one man can be trusted to keep his composure and that man is Harry Kane.

The Tottenham striker has scored five goals in his last five against West Ham and he is 6/5 to score at anytime in a Spurs win (Boylesports).
