The Hammers have been absolutely flying this season.

And West Ham can jump up to fourth place with a win against Tottenham tomorrow.

It’s a far cry from last season when we were constantly battling against dropping inside the bottom three.

Paul Merson has advice for West Ham ahead of Tottenham clash

Tomorrow’s game really is a huge opportunity for the Hammers to make a statement to the rest of the league by beating Spurs.

And Paul Merson urged West Ham to go for the jugular against Tottenham, when speaking on Sky Sports’ Gillette Soccer Saturday programme today (February 20th, 13:25):

“For me I hope West Ham don’t just play safe and think let’s just consolidate the position we’re in, if we don’t lose it and we draw we’re six points ahead (of Tottenham). I think West Ham have to win this football match.”


Jose Mourinho will be desperate for his side to turn up against West Ham and leave East London with all three points.

The Hammers cannot afford to sit back and give Spurs any kind of encouragement. They are a wounded animal at the moment.

Moyes’s men need to hit Tottenham hard and fast. We can’t give them a second to breathe. This is our chance to shine.

I for one can’t wait.
