Prediction and odds for the game: Tottenham (4/6) v West Ham (4/1)
We are backing the home win
When: Tuesday, 23rd June 2020, Kick-off 20:15
Where: The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
On Tuesday night, Tottenham host West Ham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League, as the home side look to keep their European hopes alive.
This season has certainly been a rollercoaster for the team from north London. Jose Mourinho’s team are currently eighth in the table, four points off the Champions League positions. They will know that they must start winning and fast to claim a spot in Europe’s elite competition for next season.
A 1-1 home draw with Manchester United last time out means that Spurs have failed to win in four Premier League outings while drawing their last two league outings 1-1.
Tottenham’s recent matches have not always been high-scoring in the English top-flight, but both teams have scored in their last five Premier League outings. Two clean sheets in their last 14 league games is not usually a record associated with Mourinho’s teams.
Their recent home form in the Premier League has been highly inconsistent, as they have won three and lost three of their last seven league matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Another negative is that West Ham are unbeaten in their last three visits to Tottenham, including being the first visitors to record a victory at their new home.
The Hammers head into this clash in desperate need of a victory to move further clear of the relegation zone. David Moyes team are only outside the bottom three courtesy of a superior goal difference to 18th place Bournemouth.
A 2-0 home defeat by Wolves last time out means that the visitors have lost seven of their last ten matches in the Premier League while recording just one win in the process. Defensive issues have plagued the Irons of late, as they have conceded at least two goals in six of their last eight league games.
To say that West Ham have been travel sick of late in the top-flight would be an understatement, as they have suffered six straight defeats on their travels. The fact that they have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight away matches has not helped the Hammers pick up away results.
Their recent record at Tottenham will hive them hope that they can pull off a vital win in north London.
Both teams will be playing just their second game back after the break. The pair looked slightly rusty in their opening match after the restart. However, we are backing the home side to record a victory. We are also taking a punt on another low-scoring affair, simply as neither teams look up to full speed just yet.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 4/6 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 11/10. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
