West Ham vs Tottenham betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

West Ham vs Tottenham 101 Great Goals’ prediction: West Ham 0-3 Tottenham

Following a whirlwind 24 hours at Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho will take charge of the club for the first time on Saturday.

Spurs decided to pull the trigger on Mauricio Pochettino’s reign with the north Londoners languishing down in 14th.

The former Chelsea and Manchester United manager now returns to the dugout having spent almost a year away from the game.

Meanwhile, Manuel Pellegrini will be looking to avoid the same fate as Pochettino this weekend.

The Chilean is under serious pressure with the Hammers also struggling near the bottom and defeat could spell the end for him.

Premier League preview: West Ham vs Tottenham

On Saturday, Mourinho will be hoping to end the club’s 10-month wait for an away win in the league.

He now faces a real battle to try and lead Tottenham back into the top four this season.

Spurs are already 11 points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City and a quick start to life is needed for the Portuguese head coach.

Mourinho will also be needing to make a quick start to life in north London with his appointment causing a split amongst supporters.

As he replaces the incredibly popular Pochettino he must prove to the Spurs faithful he changed from his time at Old Trafford.

The 56-year-old has already indicated that he is ready to change having brought in new coaching staff and has spoken passionately about using young players.

Pellegrini under pressure

The Hammers are also facing troubles of their own and are in a position which has placed Pellegrini’s future in serious doubt.

West Ham are without a win in nine games and were humiliated by Burnley during gameweek 12.

Results have left them lagging down at the bottom in 16th place, although they are just two points off mid-table and a couple of good results could still yet salvage their season.

But the Chilean manager is clearly struggling and a defeat to Tottenham on the weekend would most likely spell the end for him.
