Tottenham Hotspur are desperate to avoid a third straight defeat when they host West Ham United in the English Premier League.
Spurs are coming off a 1-0 defeat to AC Milan in the Champions League to add onto their 4-1 demolition at the hands of Leicester City.
Antonio Conte’s side are in 5th place with 39 points and can leapfrog Newcastle United into the EPL’s top four with a win here.
West Ham on the other hand come into the game on the back of consecutive 1-1 draws against Newcastle and Chelsea.
The Hammers are still in the relegation zone with 20 points and a win here could see them climb into 15th place on the log.
Tottenham were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham in the early weeks of the season and are desperate to get a grip on the Champions League spots.
West Ham have lost just once in their seven contests since the turn of the year but have also only managed one win in their last 10 EPL games.
Tottenham posted a pair of 2-1 and 3-1 wins in the EFL Cup and Premier League respectively last season and will be confident they can win here.
West Ham have not managed to beat their opponents since a slim 1-0 win in 2021 and need to be on top of their game to change that here.
What time does Tottenham vs West Ham start?
The game kicks off at 7:30pm Kenyan time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
