West Ham vs Tottenham Prediction & Match Preview

West Ham vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium.

Olympic Stadium will host Sunday’s local derby between West Ham United and Tottenham. 

The Hammers aim to build on a routine 3-0 win over Sheffield United, and a triumph over Spurs could see them climb to the Champions League berth. 

Since important attacker Antonio should recover in time to face Tottenham, we predict that the hosts are going to find the net in the London derby.

Ukraine international Yarmolenko, on the other hand, is rated doubtful for the match. Spurs, on the other hand, made a flying start to the season, but, all of a sudden, they suffered a dip in form. 

Jose Mourinho’s troops aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. 

All Lo Celso, Reguilon, and Aurier are likely to miss the game with injuries.

Team News:

Michail Antonio has missed West Ham's last two matches and remains a fitness doubt for Sunday's clash, but Moyes will give his only senior striker every chance of being available.

Arthur Masuaku, Andriy Yarmolenko and Angelo Ogbonna will definitely play no part for West Ham, while Darren Randolph and Fabian Balbuena are to be assessed.

With a big question mark over Antonio's availability, Moyes may well stick with the same side that eased past Sheffield United, which would mean Jarrod Bowen leading the attack.

As for Tottenham, Serge Aurier has been ruled out and fellow full-back Sergio Reguilon is also a major fitness doubt, having now missed more than a month.

Giovani Lo Celso is the visitors' only other confirmed injury or suspension absentee, with Mourinho having plenty of other options to choose from in that position.

After being rested against Wolfsberger on Thursday, the likes of Harry Kane, Steven Bergwijn and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are expected to return to the starting lineup here.

Kane has scored 11 goals in 15 Premier League games against West Ham - only against Leicester City (14) has he scored more.

West Ham United possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Diop, Dawson, Cresswell; Coufal, Soucek, Rice, Johnson; Lingard, Lanzini; Bowen

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Tanganga, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Bergwijn, Ndombele, Son; Kane
