Jamie Redknapp has fired a warning to Tottenham Hotspur about West Ham United ahead of this weekend’s big clash.
West Ham have little but pride and bragging rights to play for.
Spurs know a win all but seals their place in the Champions League for next season.
But here are so many factors at play.
Improving West Ham eye bragging rights
The Hammers have been improving in recent weeks and were unfortunate not to beat Manchester United and Leicester in their last two games.
Victory for Manuel Pellegrini’s side will see them emerge as the first away team to score and win at Tottenham’s new ground.
That will give Hammers fans some cheer after a comfortable but somewhat underwhelming season.
West Ham have previous in North London too.
They were the last team to win at Arsenal’s beloved Highbury. And they then became the first team to win at the Emirates.
Spurs have one eye on Champions League semi-final
Spurs have their one of the biggest games in their history three days after the West Ham clash.
The Champions League semi-final against Ajax will be in the back of their minds.
And now ex Spurs midfielder Redknapp, whose dad Harry played for and managed West Ham before later managing Tottenham, has fired a warning to Tottenham about the visit of the East Londoners.
‘It means so much’
“I’ve said it before the West Ham game is such an important one,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports after Tottenham’s last gasp win over Brighton on Tuesday night.
