Reason for Tottenham vs West Ham Predictions
Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to advance in the League Cup when they host West Ham United in an all-London affair in the quarter-finals. After two weeks without playing, Spurs returned to action with a 2-2 draw with Liverpool in an impressive showing at home. They are now unbeaten in their last three matches, while four of their last five have produced over 2.5 goals. Last season, they fell at the final stage to Manchester City, and this season they’ve done well so far, eliminating two Premier League sides, Burnley and Wolves. The Spurs’ recent run of fixtures will favor them, as they have played three straight home matches and still have two more. Checking on their most recent head-to-head meetings stretching back to 27/04/2019 tells us that Tottenham Hotspur has won 2 of them and West Ham United 3, with the number of draws being 1. Cristian Romero (Hamstring Injury), Emerson Royal (Unknown Injury), and Giovani Lo Celso (Knee Injury) will not be able to play for Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte. Emile Hojbjerg plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Min Son is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
West Ham United is no longer high flying; their recent matches have been humbling. In their most recent outing, they were thumped 2-0 at Arsenal and had to finish the game with ten men after Vladimir Coufal’s red card in the 67th minute. That result not only marked their second loss in three matches, but it was also their third straight game without scoring. They’ve managed just one win in the last six matches. Away from home, it isn’t better; the Hammers have three losses in five games on the road and have managed just one win in six as well. West Ham United boss David Moyes has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Kurt Zouma (Hamstring Injury) and Angelo Ogbonna (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out on this game. Declan Rice has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Jarrod Bowen is also a tremendous player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. Much is expected of this guy this season, and he is the future of English football.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet
