Live Match Preview – West Ham v Tottenham

In the lunch time kick-off on Saturday West Ham take on Tottenham at the London Stadium. So far, this season West Ham have a 100% home record (although they’ve only played 1 previous match at home) and Spurs have a 100% away record, having won their previous 2 games away from home. Only Manchester City currently boast a better away record.

Over the past 5 seasons, since West Ham regained their position in the top flight of English football, they’ve beaten Spurs 3 times and have lost twice, with last year’s renewal seeing West Ham win it by 1 goal to 0.

In West Ham’s opening home game, they beat newly promoted Huddersfield, who had been unbeaten up to that point. It was West Ham’s first points of the season and there looks to be a large disparity between their home and away form, so I expect them to do better in this match than their current league position of 17th suggests.

Having said that Spurs away form is much better than their home form, which makes this a difficult one to call. I’m therefore going to err on the side of caution and for my fun bet on the game I’m going for both teams to score at 3/4 with bet365.
