Paul Merson suggested that West Ham will make things difficult for Tottenham tomorrow, when speaking on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday today (October 17th, 13:50).
David Moyes’ Hammers side travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to take on Jose Mourinho’s Spurs tomorrow at 16:30.
Both teams are currently in the midst of excellent runs of form.
West Ham have won their last two games against Wolves at home and Leicester City away 4-0 and 3-0 respectively.
Tottenham, meanwhile, beat Manchester United 6-1 away from home last time out. They also put seven past Maccabi Haifa in the Europa League.
It is a tough one to call tomorrow, but Spurs will undoubtedly be favourites to beat the Hammers.
Paul Merson told Sky Sports today that he expects West Ham to make things very tough for Tottenham, however:
“It suits West Ham when they can sit back and counter attack. What I worry about is when they play at the London Stadium against bottom half teams and they’ve got to go out and take the game to them. They start getting picked off. When they can work from a base, they are a very, very good team. I think they will make it hard for Tottenham. I think they’ve got players who can majorly, majorly hurt you.”
Let’s hope Merson is right.
If we play anything like we did against Wolves and Leicester, we will certainly have a good chance of taking a positive result away from N17.
As long as West Ham are defensively organised and each and every player puts in a shift, there is no reason why we can’t beat Tottenham.
Everyone involved with the Hammers will be buzzing after the signing of Said Benrahma yesterday.
And three points away at Spurs would be the ideal way to cap off a superb weekend.
