West Ham United vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge of Tottenham is a London derby away to West Ham United.

The Hammers were awful last time out away at Burnley, going down to a 3-0 defeat at Turf Moor.

Since beating Manchester United in September, West Ham are without a win and Manuel Pellegrini is under pressure.

Spurs sacked Mauricio Pochettino during the international break following a poor start to the campaign.

His last game in charge was a 1-1 draw at home to Sheffield United, meaning Tottenham have claimed 24 points in 25 games in 2019.
