Reasons for West Ham and Tottenham tip
One of the biggest derbies in England is going to open the 6th week of the English Premier League. West Ham is hosting Tottenham Hotspurs in one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Both sides are heading into this match in a good mood, and we expect nothing less but a spectacle at London Stadium.
West Ham preview
Just 2 weeks ago Slaven Bilic was packing his suitcases, and many media saw him leaving West Ham. But after his birthday something has changed. His team started playing very well and since the beginning of September and so far they haven’t allowed a single goal in this month. With two victories and one draw and a goal difference of 5-0, West Ham is showing compelling performances. The majority of the Hammers’ matches in this season was ended with a moderate number of goals, 2 and 3. Four of the last 5 events ended with such an efficiency. This game will be the real test for Bilic and the boys to see whether they finally created the chemistry on the field, or if this was just a short-term shining.
James Collins and Manuel Lanzini will be ineligible until the end of the month.
Tottenham Hotspurs preview
Since the defeat against Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspurs recorded three wins and 2 draws. But the positive thing is that they only conceded 2 goals during that span. In three games the Spurs kept their net intact, twice in a row during the past week. After playing only 0-0 with Swansea, they eliminated Barnsley from the League Cup with 1-0. The Spurs played twice away from home, and on both occasions, they haven’t conceded, 2-0 against Newcastle, and 3-0 against Everton. Erik Lamela is still out of the picture, same as Victor Wanyama and Danny Rose.
West Ham vs Tottenham Hotspurs Head to Head
The games in previous two campaigns were split, and both clubs had two wins apiece. Hammers and the Spurs where are confident at their turfs. The only difference is that the games at West Ham’s stadium saw two goals in total, while the opposite ones were much efficient.
The London clubs have a long history. In 206 matches Tottenham has 93 successes and, on the other hand, West Ham 62.
West Ham vs Tottenham Hotspurs prediction and betting tips
The recent form of these rivals is showing that
the clubs have solid tendency to score often and to concede rarely. It is why we predict that this game is going to see a moderate efficiency which means between two and three goals.
Because of the cautious approach which we expect from both Bilic and Pellegrino, the second half as the highest scoring one has solid chances.
All in all, we are ahead of one fantastic battle.
