Son Heung-Min – Scored twice more against United and added an assist, continuing his excellent Premier League form.
Gareth Bale – Returning to Spurs with a fixture he made a big impact in during his first spell in North London.

Spurs have won six and drawn one of their last seven games, with one of those wins on penalties against Chelsea. They then hit seven past Maccabi Haifa, with Harry Kane scoring three of them, before he and Son Heung-Min scored twice each in the stunning 6-1 victory against Manchester United last time out.

West Ham Key Players

Michail Antonio – After his strong goalscoring end to the last season, he netted his second of this season in the win against Leicester last time out.
Jarrod Bowen – Scored three goals in his last two league games to start showing exactly why West Ham were so keen to sign him in January.

Tottenham vs West Ham United Betting Tips

Tottenham Hotspur are favourites to beat West Ham, having strengthened a side that scored 13 goals in their two matches prior to the international break.Gareth Bale’s return has dominated the headlines, but Spurs have an attacking line-up in fine form already.

Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min have scored plenty and forged a fine partnership so far this season – getting back to the heights they last showed in the 2018-19 season.

The goals are the key upgrade on last season when both suffered disjointed campaigns and injuries and failed to really hit top form.

Add Bale and it is an attacking triumvirate that could rival the front threes of the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

West Ham are in mixed form themselves, but their last two league wins have been very impressive – not just winning, but comfortably seeing off Wolves and Leicester.

Michail Antonio was back on target last time out and Jarrod Bowen has started to make his attacking mark

But Spurs are the big favourites for this match and can continue the excellent form they were in pre-international break. Expect goals.
