West Ham United host Tottenham Hotspur at the London Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as the Hammers look to extend the gap between the two sides to nine points and to remain in the top five of the Premier League.

West Ham most recently beat Sheffield United 3-0 on Monday night, as a very impressive team performance cruised the Hammers into the top five. 

Declan Rice scored West Ham's first penalty of the season to put the home side 1-0 up. The second half saw the Hammers double their lead thanks to a brilliant header from Issa Diop, who returned to the starting lineup as Angelo Ogbonna was ruled out. 

In the dying moments, Ryan Fredericks sealed the three points with a great strike just inside the area as no defender could close the substitute down quick enough.

Spurs lost to Manchester City on Saturday night as Ilkay Gundogan stole the show at the Etihad Stadium

Rodri scored a penalty past in the first half - firing his spot kick into the back of the net - despite Hugo Lloris getting a hand to the ball. 

Gundogan scored a brace in the first 20 minutes of the second half to secure the win against a poor Tottenham side who have now only won three in their last 10 games.

  • Ones to watch

West Ham United - Jesse Lingard 

After making his third appearance on Monday night, the attacking midfielder starred once again for the Hammers. Driving West Ham forward superbly, Lingard will look to build on his very impressive start to his new club. 

The 28-year old was brilliant against Aston Villa and Sheffield United, being the standout player on the pitch. Settling in very quickly, Lingard has two goals and an assist, playing a part in picking up six valuable points for the Hammers.

Adding a different attacking option for David Moyes, Lingard started in the false-9 as Antonio was out of the Sheffield United clash. He links perfectly with his teammates, especially when playing quick flowing football with Said Benrahma

Tottenham Hotspur - Harry Kane

The England captain always loves to be involved with goal or an assist against their London rivals, West Ham. In 15 Premier League appearances against the Hammers, Kane has scored 11 times and has provided two assists.

Despite Tottenham's poor form, Kane is definitely going to be desperate to help Spurs back to winning ways with a goal against their rivals.
