London rivals go different ways over managers
West Ham vs Spurs clash takes on huge significance
Poch gone, over to you Pellegrini
The news is undoubtedly a major boost for West Ham.
And it adds plenty of spice to an already fiery encounter.
West Ham fans would have taken great relish in being the team responsible for ending the reign of Tottenham’s best manager for generations. But those potential bragging rights have been taken away.
A Spurs win could seal the same fate for Pellegrini.
This will be one not to miss.
