Tottenham and West Ham have been afforded just 48 hours’ rest ahead of a third meeting of the season to conclude a hectic festive Premier League schedule.

The rivals have shared 3-2 victories already this season, winning at each other’s grounds in first the league and then EFL Cup, and head to Wembley Stadium tonight after wins over Swansea and West Brom, respectively.

A fourth win on the bounce for Spurs will see them move to within one point of fourth-placed Liverpool, while West Ham will jump up to 11th with victory at Wembley.

January window

 

The winter window is now in full swing, and while it looks to be a quiet one for Spurs, there’s one story which will last the distance this month. 

 

Everton manager Sam Allardyce has revealed he expects Ross Barkley to leave the club in January. 

 

The midfielder, who has recently returned to fitness, has been relentlessly linked with a move to Spurs. 

 

What Wembley woes? 

 

West Ham were 3-2 winners when these two met at Wembley in the EFL Cup earlier this season. 

 

Spurs have had their fair share of struggles at the national stadium this season, however, defender Jan Vertonghen thinks the ‘hoodoo’ is no longer an issue. 

 

That would be a big achievement for us. That shows how good we really are. Everyone needs a home, and we will get one, but we’re doing very well at the moment at Wembley.

WEST HAM NEWS

Moyes column

 

 

There’s a lot to get through in David Moyes’ first column of 2018. 

 

The West Ham manager has his say on the festive fixtures and their scheduling, as well as the strain on his side ahead of tonight. 

 

Moyes admits they have little room for rotation this evening, aside from in the forward areas, meaning it is unlikely Andy Carroll will get a second consecutive start after his brace against West Brom. 

Andy Carroll was terrific against West Brom but can he play again against Spurs tonight, 48 hours later?

It’s something we are considering but, given a bit more time with Andy and working with him, I believe we can get him into a better physical condition generally. I think he has more to give to the team although, even taking away his goals the other night, I thought it was his best performance for us since I’ve been at the club.

                                                                 – David Moyes

 

Furthermore, the former Everton boss speaks about his expectations for the January window and the return of Reece Oxford to the club.

Team news

Danny Rose is likely to be missing again as Tottenham play their second game in 48 hours, at home to West Ham on Thursday.

Rose will be assessed after damaging the knee which forced him to miss the start of the season.

Harry Kane should return after dropping to the bench for Tuesday’s 2-0 win at Swansea because of a heavy cold, while Victor Wanyama could make his first start since August following a knee problem.

West Ham have a host of injury worries for the trip to face Tottenham with Aaron Cresswell the latest concern.

Defender Cresswell had to go off against West Brom with a back problem on Tuesday, Michail Antonio remains a doubt with a groin injury, Andre Ayew has been struggling with a tight hamstring and Reece Oxford sprained an ankle in training.

Diafra Sakho, James Collins, Jose Fonte and Sam Byram are also on the casualty list ahead of Thursday’s Premier League match.


Predicted line-ups

Tottenham starting XI: Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Wink, Wanyama, Eriksen; Son, Kane, Dele
