West Ham United team news & predicted line-up vs Tottenham

David Moyes’ men sit just two points clear of the drop zone despite their three match undefeated run in the Premier League, and will look to pounce on key Spurs absences as the Hammers look for a shock away result

Relegation-threatened West Ham United have an arduous weekend task ahead of them as they travel across the capital to clash with Antonio Conte’s Tottenham in north London as Premier League survival reminds at the forefront of the Hammers’ thinking of late.
