Premier League: West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur match preview
A look ahead to tonight’s Premier League fixture at Upton Park
Tottenham will be hot favourites for tonight's match, as they look to leapfrog Chelsea into third place.
Manager Andre Villas-Boas would certainly love to look down upon former club Chelsea, and would be glad of the momentum going into Sunday's north London derby at home to Arsenal.
West Ham are still only six points above the drop zone, and may struggle to reverse their recent poor form, with matches against Chelsea, Stoke and Manchester City coming up next.
