Team News

  • After his sending off at Arsenal last week, Emmanuel Adebayor starts his three game suspension from domestic competition, so Jermain Defoe will start up front on his own, with Clint Dempsey likely to play in behind him.
  • Steven Caulker has recovered from the knock that kept him out of the Arsenal game and could start here.
  • Mousa Dembele is back at Tottenham after a fairly lengthy lay off with a hip injury, and is in contention to start on Sunday.
  • Wingers Yossi Benayoun and Matt Jarvis both missed the Stoke game through injury, and while the former is out, Jarvis should make it back in time to play here at White Hart Lane.
  • Collison, Diarra and Vaz Te remain absent through injury.
  • Joey O'Brien will probably start at right back again, but Guy Demel has recovered from injury so could play there.

Prediction

  • Tottenham are in dire need of a victory to get the domestic campaign back on track. After three successive defeats and four in the last five, they have dropped down the table and are in danger of being left too far behind their rivals in the race for 4th spot.
  • West Ham sit just above Spurs in the table and are unbeaten in their last three matches. Sam Allardyce has built a strong team, and it will be interesting to see how long they can maintain their lofty position in the Premier League.
  • Spurs will know they can overtake their opponents with a win, and they will also be aware of the need to improve their home form, where they have lost successive matches. The crowd will be up for this London derby and while West Ham have a good team, the home side should come out victorious.
