          West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction & Betting Tips

          West Ham host Tottenham in this London derby, as both sides seek three points to strengthen their positions in the Premier League table for European qualification.

          Date: 02/04/24

          Kick-off time: 20:15

          Venue: London Stadium

          The hosts are currently seventh in the league table, three points behind Manchester United in sixth and 12 behind this weekend’s opponents. Having qualified for European competition in three consecutive seasons, the Hammers are looking to make it a fourth for next campaign. The Premier League may be granted an extra European spot, but victory in this game for West Ham would just about keep them alive in the fight for the top six. However, if they were to lose, there are a number of teams below them waiting to take advantage of any slip-ups, and they will drift further away from the sides above.

          Similarly, Tottenham are in an intense battle for Europe, specifically the Champions League. They may qualify in fifth, but will want to make sure by finishing in the top four. With victory against Aston Villa in early March, they took control of the race, but lost 3-0 to Fulham the following week to give it straight back. They still sit just three points behind Villa and also have a game in hand, so three points this weekend is a must if they want to solidify their position. Man United trail them by eight, but they will not want to grant them any opportunities to close the gap.

          Both sides have shaky defences. Spurs have kept just one clean sheet in 12 Premier League games, and come up against a side who have scored 13 in their last five, as well as putting five past German side Freiburg in the Europa League. Jarrod Bowen is the top scorer for David Moyes’ side with 15, and he should be hopeful in adding to this tally. Spurs will look to Heung-Min Son and Richarlison as their main attacking threats, in addition to James Maddison who will create plenty of chances. The pair have scored a combined 25 goals, and face a team who have not kept a clean sheet since the very beginning of January.

          In their last five league meetings, Spurs and West Ham have two wins apiece and a draw, highlighting the competitiveness between the two. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended 2-1 in the favour of the Hammers, as goals from Bowen and James Ward-Prowse helped them come from behind after Cristian Romero opened the scoring.

          West Ham

          Edson Alvarez will serve the second of a two-game suspension after he picked up his 10th yellow card of the season. Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola was substituted at half-time of the last game so his availability is in doubt. Nayef Aguerd could return.

          Tottenham

          Tottenham have no injury concerns except a handful of players who have been out long-term. Manor Solomon, Ryan Sessegnon and Fraser Forster remain sidelined.

          Form Guide

          West Ham

          In their last five games, West Ham have won one, lost two and drawn two. It has been a poor stretch for the Hammers, who began the run with a 1-0 defeat in the first leg of their Europa League Round of 16 tie with German side Freiburg. It was a very even match in which both sides recorded an identical number of shots and shots on target. However, it was the hosts who came away with a slender advantage as Michael Gregoritsch scored the winner in the 81st minute.

          West Ham recovered in the second leg to crush their opponents 5-0 at home to advance 5-1 on aggregate. Any nerves were eased early on when Lucas Paqueta gave them a ninth minute lead. It was doubled before half-time with a Jarrod Bowen strike. The game was put to bed in the second half as a Mohammed Kudus brace added to an Aaron Cresswell goal.

          Between these two legs was a home game against Burnley. The visitors broke the deadlock through David Datro Fofana after 11 minutes, before making it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time when Konstantinos Mavropanos converted into his own net. It was the perfect response out of the break as Paqueta pulled one back. They left it late to equalise, with Danny Ings finding the back of the net in stoppage time to salvage a point.

          Prior to the international break, they took on Aston Villa at home. Michail Antonio put his side in front, but this was cancelled out with just over 10 minutes to go by Nicolo Zaniolo. West Ham’s most recent game was a trip to Newcastle in which they lost 4-3 in a thriller. The hosts took the lead through an Alexander Isak penalty, but West Ham turned it around in controversial fashion as Antonio and then Kudus scored before the break. Bowen added a third to create a cushion but Harvey Barnes scored a brace late on following another Isak spot kick to complete the stunning comeback.

          Tottenham

          In their last five games, Tottenham have won three and lost two. It has been an inconsistent period for Spurs which has seen them record one of their best wins, but also one of their worst losses. Their most recent game ended in victory as they beat Luton 2-1. They had to come from behind after Tahith Chong opened the scoring in the third minute, but an Issa Kabore own goal and Heung-Min Son strike turned it around.

          This followed a 3-0 away defeat at fellow Londoners Fulham. This took place prior to the international break in which they were crushed by their opponents. Spurs had edged possession, but gave up more attempts on goal. It was goalless for the majority of the first half, but the deadlock was broken by Rodrigo Muniz just before the break. The visitors then made the worst possible start to the second half as they went 2-0 down to a Sasa Lukic goal. Muniz then grabbed his second later on to complete the rout.

          The loss and performance against Fulham was surprising considering their display at Aston Villa a week prior. Against a team who they are in direct competition with for top four, they won 4-0. James Maddison put them ahead in the second half, a lead which was immediately doubled by Brennan Johnson. John McGinn saw red for the hosts, making Spurs’ control much firmer. Son and Timo Werner added two more in stoppage time.

          Crystal Palace proved to be tough opponents despite the 3-1 scoreline suggesting otherwise. Spurs fell behind to an Eberechi Eze strike, but fought back with goals from Werner, Cristian Romero and Son. This stretch of games began with a 2-1 home defeat to Wolves. Joao Gomes scored a brace either side of a Dejan Kulusevski goal.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Both sides come into this one in need of three points to climb the table. West Ham have had some good fortune at home against Spurs of late and will have confidence in this continuing. Spurs are very inconsistent on the road, and it is hard to predict which side will turn up. However, with their attacking talent, coupled with West Ham’s home advantage, we expect there to be nothing to split the sides – West Ham 2-2 Tottenham
