The race for a Premier League ‘top four’ finish this season is hotting up with around six teams in with a chance – one of those is Spurs, who start this weekend’s round of matches with 39 points and in fifth.

Next up for Tottenham is to host London neighbours West Ham on Sunday and with the Hammers needing a win for different reasons then we should be in for a good game.

It was 1-1 when the sides faced-off earlier this season and a repeat of that can be backed at 13/2, while Spurs won this fixture last season 3-1.

The match betting sees Spurs as the favourites at 3/4, with the draw 13/5 and West Ham on offer at 15/4.

Tottenham have lost only one of their last 8 homes matches to West Ham too, so don’t often lose to the Hammers.

Both teams have scored in 6 of the last 8 head-to-heads – so this is certainly another option to have on your radar at 3/4, while 5 of the last 8 clashes went Over 2.5 Goals – this can be backed at 4/5.

Harry Kane is sure to figure in many of the scoring bets at 11/4 (1st) or 20/21 (anytime), but Son could be the Spurs man to follow – he netted a brace in this repeat fixture last season and so the 5/1 (1st) or 7/4 (anytime) looks fair value.

The shortest-priced West Ham player is Danny Ings at 17/2 (1st) or 10/3 (anytime), with Jarrod Bowen 9/1 (1st) or 10/3 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game both sides will welcome 3 points, but it’s not as easy as that. Spurs had a midweek Champions League match too against AC Milan that would have drained more resources and energy on what looks a bit of a bare squad at the moment.

With that in mind, the safer call looks to side with both teams to score again at 3/4 – a bet that has paid out in 75% of the last 8 fixtures.
