West Ham Clash "More Than Football Game" Says Mauricio Pochettino


West Ham Clash

After a bad start, West Ham have not conceded in three games and kick-started their season with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield.

With this information in mind, it appears they could be a tough opponent, but it wouldn't be the end of their world should West Ham United knock them out.

Tottenham are yet to hit top gear this season but Saturday's short trip to the London Stadium to face local rivals West Ham United offers the ideal opportunity to kickstart their campaign.

YOU can watch the game live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League, with coverage starting at 11.30am.

Slaven Bilic will show his West Ham squad clips of last season's 1-0 win over Tottenham in the hope it triggers deja vu and they can inflict another defeat on Saturday. Their good defensive form carried over to a hard-fought 0-0 draw away at West Brom, before a 3-0 home win over Bolton in midweek in preparation for the game against Spurs.

Their main creative force Manuel Lanzini will also miss out due to a damaged knee, but Mark Noble could make his first appearance in over a month. This will show us how Spurs will play in the Carabao Cup as well.

Spurs edged past Barnsley 1-0 at Wembley Stadium thanks to Dele Alli's 65th-minute strike.

West Ham have failed to score in three of their league games this season.

Harry Kane has scored five goals in his last five Premier League appearances against West Ham United. It's not looking promising based on what I saw at West Ham the other evening. However with most of Spurs' key players rested and ready to go in this important game, the Hammers may struggle against what is an incredibly hard team to beat.
