Tottenham vs West Ham – Premier League: If the month of December was very positive for Tottenham, since they have only dropped points in 2 matches
With a draw against Watford and a loss against Manchester City, West Ham will feel the exact opposite, considering they have only won 2 matches, although one of them was against Chelsea and the other was on the visit to Stoke.
Their performances in the last month of 2017 are reflected on each of these teams’ position in the Premier League.
Despite everything, Tottenham needs to improve their ability to face the top teams, since the 5th place is definitely insufficient for what are the Spurs’ objectives.
Shortening the distance with this crazy schedule is only one of the paths that Mauricio Pochettino’s side will have to take in order to ensure a spot in next season’s Champions League. Another one will be being more effective on the higher importance matches.
For West Ham, the change of manager is taking its time to have an impact.
David Moyes has maybe proven to himself that the roster he had wouldn’t be enough to recover, which means January will be fundamental for the Hammers to transform themselves and be able to get on track to avoid relegation.
But until then, their schedule forces them to present on a high demand match with the players they have at their disposal.
The victory against West Bromwich, this Tuesday, with a goal from Andy Carroll at the final minutes, offers them some perspectives of improvement.
Tottenham vs West Ham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The weight of the exaggerated number of matches in the past couple of weeks might have an impact, especially since they have had less than 48 hours to recover from their last match.
Still, the Spurs’ ability to create goal chances, with Harry Kane, probably, back on the starting line-up, make them favourites for this match.
