Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham team news

The availability of Dele Alli after suspension might push Jose Mourinho to make atleast one change to his side for the game. Erik Lamela could be the one sacrificed for Alli.
Steve Bergwijn and Heung-Min Son came back stronger from their injuries and are likely to maintain their starting positions to provide support for Harry Kane.

For the visitors, the biggest question is whether Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko will get a starting berth. The only other change could be Declan Rice being put in the centre of midfield by coach David Moyes.
