West Ham travel to north London to take on Tottenham in 10 days time.

The Hammers are in real trouble at the moment. They are currently sitting in 16th spot in the Premier League table.

And David Moyes’s side are only outside the relegation zone because of a superior goal difference to those in and around them in the table.

West Ham face Wolves at home on Sunday. And that game is a must win for the east London outfit.


Then it’s the big London derby. Tottenham away.

On paper, away at Spurs seems like a tough fixture. But Jose Mourinho’s side are currently in all sorts of problems themselves.

Tottenham haven’t won in their last six games, and their display away at RB Leipzig in the Champions League last night was quite frankly pathetic.

Former West Ham defender Danny Gabbidon took to Twitter last night, and suggested that Spurs are a shambles at the moment:

Now, whilst it is harsh for Gabbidon to label Tottenham as a shambles, it’s hard to argue against it.

Harry Kane, Heung- Min Son and Steven Bergwijn are all out injured, leaving Spurs incredibly light in attack.

West Ham will certainly fancy their chances against their London rivals.

If Mourinho’s men fail to beat Manchester United this weekend, they will head into the Hammers game on the back of a seven game winless run.

But West Ham fans won’t be getting ahead of themselves. They will be well aware of their history of losing to teams who are in the midst of horrendous losing runs.

Who knows, however. Maybe this time will be different. The Hammers were the first team to score and win at Tottenham’s new stadium after all.
