West Ham United VS Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday (23/09/2017)
12:30 (WAT)
West Ham host Tottenham on Saturday, kicking off the weekend Premier League action, looking for a third consecutive home win over their rivals for the first time since 1999.

In a derby which has arguably grown in stature in recent years due to eventful matches, last-gasp winners and the pertinence of results; the Hammers most recently ending Spurs' title hopes with a 1-0 win in May.

Manuel Lanzini, the goalscorer four months ago, is not available this weekend but a win for the hosts on Saturday lunchtime will move them to within one point of Spurs after an inconsistent start from both.


Team news
West Ham are without James Collins for the next few weeks after the centre-back sprained his ankle against West Brom.

The Wales international is joined by Pedro Obiang (muscle) and Manuel Lanzini (knee) on the sidelines, but Mark Noble could make his first appearance in almost a month and Edimilson Fernandes is nearing a return.

Tottenham have no fresh injury concerns. with Victor Wanyama (knee) not expected back before the end of September, with Danny Rose (knee) and Erik Lamela (hips) the long-term absentees.

Mauricio Pochettino, though, will have to rethink his setup after two tougher-than-expected games against Swansea and Barnsley, with Ben Davies expected to return to move Heung-min Son back to the bench.

Harry Kane will also return after sitting out the League Cup win, while Serge Aurier could feature having missed the previous two games.

Predicted line-ups

West Ham starting XI: Hart; Fonte, Reid, Ogbonna; Zabaleta, Kouyate, Obiang, Cresswell; Antonio, Chicharito; Carroll

Tottenham starting XI: Lloris; Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Aurier, Dembele, Dier, Davies; Eriksen, Dele; Kane
