West Ham vs Tottenham − Match preview
I think it’s safe to say that most Spurs fans would have wanted Daniel Levy to give Mauricio Pochettino, surely now a club legend, more time to turn things around than replace the Argentine with Jose Mourinho. But if Levy is anything, it’s ruthless. Has he finally found his perfect partner, in Mourinho?
His maiden game in charge should be a tasty encounter, with West Ham fans and Tottenham fans not massively fond of each other.
Both clubs are in bad shape. Spurs go into today’s game in 14th place in the table, with West Ham in 16th − at the start of the season most people expected them to be in the European places.
The Hammers collapsed when Lukasz Fabianski got injured at the end of September. They’ve picked up just a single point from the five Premier League games they’ve played since he was sidelined.
For Tottenham, the problem appears to be a case of first-team players not pulling their weight. It’ll be interesting to see how those individuals respond to Mourinho’s appointment.
