Only managing a 1-1 draw against Stoke City in what many West Ham United fans were billing a ‘must-win game’, Slaven Bilic’s Hammers now face a tough schedule ahead.
Facing fierce London rivals Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow tea-time, what West Ham United need fast is victories but achieving one at White Hart Lane looks a massive ask on paper.
Considering the fact Spurs are still the only unbeaten team in the Premier League while giving away very little, West Ham United just aren’t scoring enough so something has to change from the Hammers’ perspective.
Perhaps the added fire of a London Derby may bring something more out of West Ham United whose highest point this season was dumping fellow London rivals Chelsea out of the EFL Cup.
Slaven Bilic’s side will have to face Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs without captain Mark Noble who is missing with a one-match suspension but in many ways, Hammers fans may not feel this is so bad with Noble in poor form so far this term.
Without further ado however, This Is Futbol have devised the West Ham United starting eleven we feel Slaven Bilic will go with for tomorrow evening’s eagerly anticipated fixture in North London.
