Slaven Bilic wants another special delivery to see off Spurs

West Ham played a midweek EFL Cup clash against Bolton, which saw them beat the Championship side 3-0 at the London stadium.

Slaven Bilic seems to be on his last legs as West Ham's manager, and another loss here could be the end of his tenure. Fellow midfielder Pedro Obiang will also be absent, with the 27-year-old still struggling with a knock that he picked up against the Baggies.

Tottenham manager Pochettino had taken a 49-strong group of players and club staff out for a mid-week meal at a London steak restaurant to strengthen the bond within the squad.

For the visitors, Erik Lamela, Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama will miss the game with respective injuries. Spurs are 4-5-1 against the Hammers in their last 10 matches and have lost three of their last four to West Ham on the road.

"It is a fantastic result away from home".

Harry Kane has scored five goals in his last five Premier League appearances against West Ham United. "That is why I am in love with him for different reasons".

Last season, both Eriksen and Alli provided nine assists for Kane - the Premier League's joint-highest assist rate for a team-mate - and Eriksen provided seven for Alli.

Kane now has seven goals in six Premier League matches against West Ham and the striker proved the difference again here.

Dembele, who turned 30 in July, has a longstanding issue with the top of his left foot and he has said he will always play with some pain, despite going under the knife in May. "It's emotional, you play for your pride and we understand what it means for our fans - we share the same feelings", he told Tottenham's website.

"We play every two to three days and then all are away for global break". Spurs might not be able to hold quite as high of a line as they hoped.

Tottenham went into this London derby knowing a win over the Hammers would take them to third in the league while West Ham were determined to avoid defeat at the hands of their rivals in front of a packed Upton Park.

Cheikhou Kouyate's powering 87th-minute header then set up a thrilling finish at the London Stadium but Tottenham dug deep for all three points.
