Tottenham VS West Ham preview: Who will come up top in the derby?
Spurs are set to host the Hammers, where they will both be looking to get back to winning ways.
With West Ham 6th and Tottenham 7th, it will be a very even tie but Spurs will be looking to capitalise on the home advantage. They have previously won 2 out of their last 3 at home. With the Hammers having a worrying defensive record this season, especially away from home. Conceding 11 in 5.
West Ham have a major amount of injuries in their starting line-up, it’s looking like midfielder, Katie Longhurst, will be playing CB again. It is not a position that she has played many games in over her long career, so it will be something Spurs will look to capitalise on.
With Drew Spence and Ashleigh Neville both scoring 3 goals so far for the Lilywhite’s, they will be the ones to watch and hope to continue to cause a threat for the makeshift West Ham back line. Also Neville has 2 assists to her name.
For the Irons, it is still all about star signing -Viviane Asseyi- scoring 4 goals and assisting two so far this season. The French international, has already equalled the Hammers top goal scorer stat of last season, with 4.
With Risa Shimizu winning player of the month, she will want to carry her form into the next. The right back will be against Neville, so it will be a tough but enjoyable encounter down that side.
With West ham managing to get 4 points off of Tottenham last year, including Longhurst’s last minute equaliser at the Hive, they will go in confident that they can come out the happier side yet again in this fixture.
