Robbie Savage backed West Ham to beat Tottenham 2-1 tomorrow, when making his weekly predictions for the Mirror.

The Hammers welcome Spurs to the London Stadium with both sides in desperate need of all three points.

West Ham have slumped down to 16th spot in the Premier League table, having gone six games without a win.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are in 14th, after taking just three points from their last five league games.

Tomorrow’s game took on a different twist earlier this week when Mauricio Pochettino was sacked as Spurs boss, before being replaced by Jose Mourinho 12 hours later.

Many are predicting that Tottenham will experience the ‘new manager bounce’, but Savage disagrees.

He predicted West Ham to beat Spurs 2-1, when making his weekly predictions for the Mirror.

It will be a fiery affair between the two London rivals.

Mourinho always sets his teams up so they are hard to beat. Whilst Pellegrini likes to implement an exciting brand of attacking football.

One thing’s for sure, a draw will do neither West Ham or Tottenham any good, so both sides should really be going out to win the game.
