Poch, Kane relieved as Tottenham hold off West Ham fightback

Michail Antonio's first half injury in the 28th minute was the turning point in the contest, as West Ham were the better side up to that point.

"It gives you good memories and good pattern to repeat what you have done against that team", he said.

Premier league side Totttenham Hotspurs proved to be a force to recon with away from home as they defeated fellow London side West Ham 3-2 at the London stadium. While Spurs have had a lot of troubles at home, West Ham have struggled on the road.

The two wins over Brighton will have given them some confidence and with Jermain Defoe back among the goals and looking sharp they could pounce if Everton aren't at the races.

The reigning Hammer of the Year, who suffered a hamstring injury against Swansea in April which ruled him out for the rest of last season, has scored just once in his last 17 appearances in all competitions.

But even though the hosts seemed to have turned a corner over the last two weeks, the threat of Spurs' attack might just be too big to neutralise.

However, it is likely that ExWHUemployee is referencing last weekend's 0-0 draw against West Brom in regards to the changes.

After going against Tottenham last week because of circumstances I am now fully on board with Spurs in the early game tomorrow. It happens to all clubs but the first season, it affects you.

Spurs are favourites to win the game at 13/20 odds and we are backing the same outcome as our prediction in this game.

Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen won't be relishing the task of marking him on Saturday. Hernandez will be sharp in the box and you have to be alive to any chances he might get. "I am in love like the fans are in love, like his team-mates are in love".

When Carroll is fit, you've got to enjoy him, you've got to use him.

Prior to the substitution, West Ham had been pumping balls in behind Tottenham's back line for its front three to chase. The team showed different faces during the game. The stats back that up.

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez admits that the London derby against Tottenham Hotspur will be special, but he has stressed that he plays with the same kind of passion and attitude in all games.

"That's tough too. We will play the derby with West Ham now, they we will fly to Cyprus for almost five hours, then come back, arrive here at 5pm and prepare for Huddersfield on Saturday". He picks out Alli, his shot strikes Hart's legs, running into the path of Kane for an easy finish into an empty net.

United are flirting with the bottom three ahead of their clash with title-chasers Tottenham and could find themselves in the relegation zone if they come unstuck. It's going to be a tough game.
