West Ham vs Tottenham: Go for goals in London derby

Kick-off: 1400, 24/10/2021

Stadium: London Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

West Ham are shading favouritism as they welcome Tottenham to the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

With both teams taking part in European competition in midweek, who recovers best could decide this tie.

This London derby often provides plenty of entertainment and our opening West Ham vs Tottenham prediction is both teams to score in the first half at 31/10.

A Look at West Ham United’s Betting Odds

The Hammers moved up to seventh in the table with a scrappy 1-0 win at Everton last week when Angelo Ogbonna’s second-half header was the deciding factor.

That was a fourth league win of the campaign for David Moyes’ side who are proving this term that last season’s sixth-place finish was no fluke.

Only four sides have scored more goals than the Hammers in the top flight and they will be licking their lips at the chance to attack a Tottenham defence that is without a clean sheet in five league games.

West Ham’s cause has been aided by Michail Antonio’s five Premier League goals, with the Jamaica international responsible for a third of his team’s tally.

Looking at the West Ham vs Tottenham odds, it is 17/10 for the 31-year-old to find the net here.

Last West Ham EPL line-up: Fabianski, Cresswell, Zouma, Ogbonna, Johnson, Fornals, Soucek, Rice, Antonio, Bowen, Benrahma.

Antonio should return having been rested for the midweek Europa League win over Belgian side Genk.

Right-back Vladimir Coufal looks set to miss out again with a groin problem.

A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds

Following three straight Premier League defeats that heaped the pressure on Nuno Espirito Santo, back-to-back victories have propelled Spurs up to fifth in the table.

Scoring five goals in the process of beating Aston Villa and Newcastle will have been a further boost to confidence and both teams have reason for optimism heading into this game.

It will have been encouraging for Santo to see Harry Kane bag his first top-flight goal of the season in last weekend’s 3-2 win over Newcastle.

There are also signs that the England skipper’s partnership with Son Heung-Min could flourish once again as he helped set up the South Korean’s fourth of the season at St James’ Park.

When you combine both teams’ strengths with the recent head-to-head record, it is easy to envisage plenty of goals in this one.

For the last of our West Ham vs Tottenham betting tips, we’ll go over 3.5 goals at 195/100.

Last Spurs EPL line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Romero, Emerson, Dier, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Skipp, Son, Kane, Moura.

Tottenham have no fresh injuries for the trip across the capital.

The team that beat Newcastle last weekend did not travel to Holland for the Europa Conference League defeat to Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday, instead training in London.

Matt Doherty and Ryan Sessegnon remain injured and will not be involved.
