Tim Sherwood suggested that Tottenham are there for the taking ahead of their clash with West Ham at the London Stadium tomorrow, when speaking on Sky Sports’ Gillette Soccer Saturday programme today (February 20th, 13:18).
The Hammers are flying at the moment whilst Spurs are really struggling.
David Moyes has worked wonders since taking over West Ham for the second time in December 2019.
The Hammers are currently sitting in fifth spot in the Premier League table just four points adrift of second placed Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, has had mixed fortunes since taking over as Tottenham manager in November 2019.
Many have criticised the quality of football his Spurs team have been playing and he hasn’t been getting consistent results either.
Tim Sherwood makes West Ham vs Tottenham prediction
West Ham have a great chance to stretch their lead to nine points over Tottenham tomorrow.
And Tim Sherwood suggested that Spurs are there for the taking, when speaking on Sky Sports’ Gillette Soccer Saturday programme today (February 20th, 13:18):
“I think they’re there for the taking Tottenham, I really do. The pressure is on them to win this football match. It’s a strange old league, someone could step into the top four and it might just be West Ham. They have been playing very well, he’s got therm very very organised and I think Tottenham are there for the taking. If West Ham come off the peddle like they did against Liverpool, they need to go for the jugular against Tottenham, if they show them too much respect I think Tottenham will take over the game. If they get at Tottenham’s defence it will give them a real opportunity.”
West Ham must learn from their past mistakes when playing the big teams this season.
The Hammers have shown too much respect to the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.
We need to play the team on paper not the name.
And if West Ham go for it against Tottenham tomorrow, Moyes’s men will undoubtedly cause Jose Mourinho’s side all sorts of trouble.
