Tottenham vs West Ham predicted XIs- Team news as Moyes cautioned over Spurs' 'own Kevin De Bruyne'

Published: 11:37, 18 March 2022

West Ham produced one of the most memorable nights in the club’s storied history on Thursday night, but attention quickly shifts to a Premier League six-pointer against London rivals Tottenham on Sunday at 4.30pm (UK time).

David Moyes claimed the mother of all Europa League scalps in midweek as his hard-nosed Hammers put Sevilla to the sword in a 2-0 win (2-1 on aggregate) to send them through to the quarter-finals, but such are the demands of modern football that there is simply no rest for the wicked as Spurs await on Sunday.

It’s all getting a bit claustrophobic in the Premier League top-four race. As it stands, Arsenal occupy the coveted final Champions League place — and with games in hand — but between themselves, Manchester United in fifth, West Ham in sixth and Spurs in seventh, there is just three points in it. It’s all to play for.

Tottenham team news vs West Ham: ‘Kane like De Bruyne’

Ryan Sessegnon, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga all remain sidelined for Antonio Conte, meaning the Italian is likely to retain the starting XI he deployed against Brighton in midweek, knowing he has an international break just around the corner to reset and prepare for April.

Harry Kane became the all-time record away goalscoring in Premier League history on Wednesday after getting his name on the scoresheet against Brighton, but Tottenham icon Dimitar Berbatov believes he is a forward more in the mould of playmaker greats, rather than No. 9 legends.

“For quite some time, he has been one of the greats in the Premier League,” Berbatov told Daily Star Sport. “The City game proved that, and not just because he scores goals.

“Honestly, I look at strikers a bit differently, his overall movement around the pitch, and how he gets the ball. When he has the ball, there is a calmness around the pitch.

“And when he passes the ball, oh my god, it’s like I’m watching Kevin De Bruyne playing for Spurs. He’s so good at scoring goals and playing killer passes – so he’s in between a No.9 and No.10.”

West Ham team news vs Tottenham: No fresh injuries from Sevilla

West Ham went 120 minutes against Sevilla on Thursday night as they required extra time to see off the Europa League heavyweights, but apart from a fair few tired legs, Moyes would have been buoyed to see his side leave the turf unscathed. That means Vladimir Coufal and Angelo Ogbonna remain his only long-term absentees, while Jarrod Bowen is not expected back until after the international break.
