West Ham – thrashed 4-0 at West Brom in the FA Cup fifth round last weekend and slated by some of their fans afterwards – are sure to be fired up at Tottenham on Sunday, when they will be looking to disrupt the home side’s fluid style by fair means or foul.
Hammers manager Sam Allardyce will want to ensure there is no repeat of last Saturday’s Hawthorns humiliation, especially as some supporters were calling for his sacking afterwards.
He is expected to have two key central defenders back after injury in Winston Reid and James Collins, which will allow Cheikhou Kouyate to return to midfield.
Adding extra spice to the occasion is speculation that Tottenham are keen to sign New Zealand international Reid, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Indeed, rivalry between these two London clubs appears to have moved on to a more feisty level of late, with the last two Premier League encounters between them producing a total of 48 fouls and three red cards.
Collins and Spurs right-back Kyle Naughton were sent off in Tottenham’s 1-0 win at Upton Park in August, while Spurs centre-back Younes Kaboul saw red in the Hammers’ 2-0 home victory in May.
With only five points separating sixth-placed Spurs and West Ham in eighth in the battle for Europa League places, White Hart Lane will be no place for the faint-hearted.
The clubs’ combined fouls-per-game average in the Premier League this season of 24 looks sure to be exceeded.
