Despite shaky starts, the teams are currently in seventh and sixth place, respectively, one victory away from a possible top-four finish. Here is everything you need to know about West Ham vs Tottenham football prediction for the Premier League match of the season.

West Ham

Due to a positive COVID-19 test Alex Kral will be absent, while David Moyes hopes Vladimir Coufal will be fit enough to play.

Ben Johnson began at right-back against Everton, but he might keep his spot despite having played the entire 90 minutes against Genk on Thursday night.

Tottenham

Bryan Gil and Son Heung-Min both returned false positives for COVID-19 tests and both members of the Tottenham Hotspur team that defeated Newcastle United on Sunday will be in the Spurs squad.

Emerson Royal and Cristian Romero both played the entire 90 minutes at St. James’ Park in spite of a tight turnaround in games, and the duo should hold their spots in what should be an unchanged XI for the journey across the city.

On Thursday night West Ham won 3-0 over Genk, extending their winning streak to five games in all competitions. However, failing to win any of their last three league games at the London Stadium they have struggled at home recently.
