The Hammers welcome Spurs to the London Stadium tomorrow for a game that it vitally important to both teams.

West Ham can leapfrog Tottenham with a win at the London Stadium tomorrow and we can jump inside the top four if results elsewhere go our way.

David Moyes is building something hugely exciting at West Ham.

The fact that we are probably favourites to win tomorrow says all you need to know about our recent progress.

One key reason for our progression once again this season has been Kurt Zouma.

The 26-year-old has slotted in seamlessly at the London Stadium and he has made a huge impact already.

Paul Merson has made a very bold claim about Kurt Zouma

Zouma joined West Ham from Chelsea in the summer for around £25 million (Independent).

The 26-year-old is a top-class defender. And Paul Merson is clearly a very big fan.

Merse suggested that Zouma would walk into Tottenham’s starting XI, when writing his column for the Daily Star:

“Kurt Zouma would get in the Spurs team all day long but West Ham got him – from a big club in the Champions League. Wouldn’t have happened a few years ago.”

The French centre-back has everything needed to become a world-class centre-half.

 

He is strong, quick along the ground and dominant in the air.

Tottenham would love to have him in their starting XI for tomorrow’s game against West Ham.

That begs the question why on earth didn’t they try to sign him in the summer?

We’re not complaining of course. We are more than happy that Zouma is a West Ham player. And hopefully he makes the difference for us tomorrow.
