Check our complete match preview and betting prediction for tonight’s match.

Tottenham is on a 7-game winless streak across all competitions

Tottenham resume competition last Friday, as they hosted Manchester United. Jose Mourinho’s team was ahead after an amazing goal from Steven Bergwijn but conceded a penalty inside the last 10 minutes. It was the seventh game without a win for the Spurs across all competitions, 4th consecutive in the Premier League.

With Son Heung-min and Harry Kane back in the lineup after sustaining injuries before the break, Tottenham has a better chance to get good results in the last 8 Premier League games of the season. The South Korean scored 6 goals in his last 6 appearances and 4 in the last 4 meetings with the Hammers.

Currently 8th in the Premier League, Tottenham still dreams about getting at least the 5th place in the competition and have a shot in the Europa League next season. The team is 4 points behind Manchester United. A place in the Champions League next season seems a long shot for the Spurs as the team are 9 points behind Chelsea (4th).

Foyth, Parrott, and Tanganga are all out of Mourinho’s options for tonight due to injury.

The Hammers are fighting desperately to avoid relegation

With just one win in their last 10 Premier League matches, West Ham faces a huge battle to avoid relegation. The team in only out of the danger zone thanks to a better goal difference than Bournemouth.

West Ham resumed competition with a 2-0 loss at home against Wolverhampton, and the future doesn’t get any better. With Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United on their schedule in the last 8 games of the season, relegation seems very real for the Hammers.

David Moyes will not have Snodgrass available, while Haller, Masuaku, Ogbonna, and Zabaleta are all doubtful for tonight’s match.

Betting Tip

Both teams need desperately to win, especially West Ham. However, we believe Tottenham will be stronger tonight and get the win.
