When speaking to reporters yesterday, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho suggested that West Ham have enough to avoid relegation this season, as quoted by Football.London.
Spurs play host to the Hammers in the Premier League tonight.
David Moyes will be desperate for all three points, with his side languishing just outside the relegation zone.
West Ham were woeful against Wolves at the London Stadium on Saturday evening. And they will need to be a lot better tonight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium if they are to have any chance of taking a positive result away with them from north London.
The Hammers are currently sitting just outside the relegation zone, purely because of a superior goal difference to Bournemouth.
Things are looking bleak for West Ham.
But Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho told reporters that he believes the Hammers have enough to avoid the drop this season, as quoted by Football.London:
“It’s for David to read the situation, but in this moment they are above the relegation line but if they don’t want to suffer in the last couple of matches of the season, they need to make points there. I think they’re good enough not to have relegation problems.”
Let’s hope Jose is right.
But as every West Ham fan will know, David Moyes’s side look like they are in real trouble.
The Hammers have no footballing identity. No passion, fight or hunger. And if we are being really honest, they seem like a team destined for the Championship at the moment.
West Ham quite simply need to win one of their next two games.
They managed to beat Spurs away last season. So the east London outfit know they are capable.
Whether the Hammers players can produce the goods when it matters tonight, however, is another matter entirely.
