Tottenham are set to take on london rivals West Ham in the premier league game on Friday night, 05 May 2017 at Olympic Stadium, London in a game kicking off at around 20:00 uk time. SkySports will have the live coverage of the game in the UK while US viewers can watch the match live on NBC. Spurs must win this game to reduce the gap at top of the table to just 1 point and put pressure on Chelsea who play Middlesbrough later in the weekend. Its all to play for in this London derby and we will have live links closer to the kickoff.
Match Preview & Team News: Tottenham are 4 points behind Chelsea in the title race with only 4 more matches to play for and they must win all their remaining games and hope Chelsea slip up twice to open up the title race. Other than that the title is pretty much Chelsea’s to lose but Spurs will be hoping to put some sort of pressure on Antonio Conte’s men when they take the field against West Ham on Friday night at Olympic Stadium in London.
West Ham has not lost a game in last 4 matches and they sit 15th in the table just above the relegation dog fight and fans can safely assume that team will survive the drop easily after what was a very underwhelming season. However manager Slaven Bilic will be hoping to put together a decent run of form from now to end of the season to make sure players go into the pre-season in a good mode.
This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Friday. Harry Kane will be the player to watch out for who is hunting for premier league golden boot just behind Everton’s Lukaku.
Predictions: Hard to see Spurs dropping points in this game, they look relentless at the moment and since their exit from European competitions they are playing some of the best football in the league. I am expecting an easy win for Spurs probably with early goals from Kane and Alli. While West Ham do have some attacking powers to trouble Spurs but at the back they are too fragile to get anything from this match.
