Pochettino, Bilic Talk Tough Ahead Of West Ham Vs Tottenham

Judging by West Ham's past two Premier League matches, a bruising 2-0 win over Huddersfield last Monday, and Saturday's 0-0 draw at West Brom, which passed by without a single scoring chance, the Hammers are unlikely to match Tottenham for attractiveness. Anyone looking for a riskier play could take Tottenham -1, I think Spurs will cover the handicap.

Kane netted twice in the space of four first-half minutes to take his tally against the Hammers to seven goals in his last six Premier League games.

They also claimed a confidence boosting 3-0 victory over Bolton in the Carabao Cup this week.

West Ham star Michail Antonio has said that his team-mates are all behind manager Slaven Bilic.

The former Tottenham defender was impressed with the performance of Davies in the London derby against West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.

Javier Hernandez pulled one back for West Ham after Christian Eriksen had made it three, but despite Sergie Aurier picking up a red card and Cheikhou Kouyate netting late on, the hosts were unable to stage a comeback.

"We played well and fought", he told Sky Sports News.

In a reversal of fortunes from most of last season, Spurs more effortlessly show their cutting edge in enemy territory.

But in the end, those early Kane goals had done the trick for Spurs.

Spurs' attacking triumvirate of Eriksen, Kane and Dele Alli is arguably the most potent in England.

More dropped points at their temporary home during a 0-0 draw with Swansea City last weekend leaves them now five points adrift of the leading Manchester clubs, and that is a gap they can not allow to grow much bigger.

Andy Carroll replaced the winger and had an immediate impact - but not in the manner he would have wanted.

"Because if we are talking about his contract, the question mark about him is his fitness, about how much he is available during the season".

Welcome to our live coverage of West Ham - Tottenham.

"I find it hard to find the words to describe him", said Pochettino.

Alli swung in a ideal cross behind a West Ham backline caught horribly square, and Kane applied the finish with a glancing header past Joe Hart.

Dembele, when fit and on form, is an integral cog in Tottenham's possession play, with the Belgian's range of passing and vision a key element for the North London side in the final third.
