Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed the Tottenham injury list ahead of tomorrow’s clash with West Ham.
The Hammers welcome Spurs to the London Stadium for the 2pm kick-off.
West Ham won in Europe on Thursday night whilst Tottenham were humbled against Vitesse.
Nuno rested his entire first XI whilst David Moyes went hard and only rested Kurt Zouma, Angelo Ogbonna, Said Benrahma, Pablo Fornals and Michail Antonio.
Many are suggesting that the Tottenham players will fancy their chances because they will be fresher than the West Ham team.
There’s a lot to be said for momentum, however, and the Hammers will be riding a wave of confidence. The same clearly cannot be said for Spurs.
West Ham have only one injury doubt with Vladimir Coufal struggling to recover from a groin problem. But do Tottenham have any injury problems of their own?
Nuno confirms Tottenham injury list ahead of West Ham clash
The Spurs boss has spoken to reporters and suggested that there are only two players he will be unable to call upon for tomorrow’s game at the London Stadium, quoted via Football.London:
“Yes, unfortunately (they will miss the game). Matt’s improving. Sess also but they’re not in the group yet. Next week, we’ll see if we have good news.”
Both players probably wouldn’t have played against West Ham anyway.
So Nuno basically has a full-strength team to choose from.
It should be a cracking game at the London Stadium.
If we are on our best form, Spurs will find it very hard to live with us.
Anything can happen in a London derby, however. And it’s that unpredictability that makes football such a great game.
