Sunday sees Tottenham Hotspur take a trip to London Stadium as they face West Ham United in a clash to secure the Champions League places.
Spurs have lost four of their last five Premier League matches but an away leg win against Wolfsberger AC in Round of 32 in the Europa League will definitely lift the spirits of the players. On the other hand, David Moyes’ side has managed to build an amazing team capable of competing for the top six spots. Just one loss in the last six Premier League outings has seen the Hammers leapfrog defending champions Liverpool to fifth behind Chelsea on goal difference.
