Tottenham - West Ham - Preview

Tottenham welcome West Ham to Whte Hart Lane this evening for a London derby. Spurs welcome back Danny Rose, Aaron Lennon and Etienne Capoue bck to the squad after their victory against Anzi in midweek.

West Ham, who are now in the relegation zone, welcome back Joe Cole after the veteran winger has recovered from a hamstring injury. In addition, George McCartney could make his first Premiership start of the season.

The omens are good for Tottenham fans. Since promotion in 2012, West Ham have only scored 11 goals in 22 games. In fact last season, West Ham were the lowest scoring team away from home in the football league. This season isn't getting any better, as the Hammers are yet to score an away goal.

Tottenham on the other hand are currently enjoying their best ever start to a season with 13 points from 6 games. They have only lost one of the last 16 league games at White Hart Lane and have only lost two of the last 25 London derbies at home.

Both team's have been goal shy so far this season, with Spurs scoring 1 goal per game and West Ham only scoring 4 goals in 6 games. It could be fair to expect that this game may be decided by a single goal.

If results go their way, Tottenham could finish the weekend top of the table. West Ham on the other hand could do with a win, or their fans will start getting edgy being in the relegtion zone.
