Tottenham hosts West Ham United in round 30 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, March 20th at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London)
Tottenham is in seventh place in the championship standings with 48 points after 28 matches. Antonio Conte’s team gained 15 victories and three draws and suffered ten losses. The Spurs are not distinguished by stable results. In the last six rounds, they gained four victories. Yes, Tottenham hammered Leeds United (0-4) and Everton (5-0) but suffered a painful away defeat from Burnley (1-0). Because of this, the Spurs remain outside the top four for now. In addition, they unexpectedly ended the fight for the FA Cup, losing to modest Middlesbrough (0-1 after extra time). On March 16, Tottenham coped with Brighton in the postponed match of the 16th round (0-2). Christian Romero and Harry Kane scored for Tottenham, and it was the third clean sheet for the team in the last four rounds.

West Ham is ranked sixth in the Premier League standings with 48 points after 29 games. The Hammers gained 14 victories and six draws and suffered nine defeats. In addition to the championship, they spend energy on the playoffs of the Europa League. The Irons still have a chance to finish in the Champions League zone, but they are behind Arsenal and Tottenham in terms of points lost and are two points behind Manchester United. The beginning of March turned out to be unsuccessful for West Ham. Moyes’ men suffered three away defeats in a row. They lost to Southampton in the FA Cup (3-1), Liverpool in the Premier League (1-0), and Sevilla in the 1st leg of the Europa League 1/8 finals (1-0). But they managed to beat Aston Villa in the last round of the Premier League (2-1) and dealt with the Andalusians in the second leg in London (2-0 after extra time).
Tottenham has a home field advantage and class dominance, but it’s also important that the Spurs have a slightly simpler calendar. West Ham has an extra load in European competitions, and this can work in Tottenham’s favor. Moreover, the Lilywhites looked more convincing than the Hammers in the last rounds of the Premier League. Harry Kane managed to gain excellent shape: he scored five goals in four rounds in a row. The Spurs scored two goals even in the lost match with Manchester United at Old Trafford (3-2) and showed the same production in four previous games. Let’s believe in another scoring double from the hosts.
