West Ham v Tottenham: Premier League – live


Key events

West Ham make just one change to their starting line-up in the wake of the 4-3 defeat at Newcastle. Alphonse Areola hasn’t recovered from the groin injury that ended his day prematurely at St James’ Park; Lukasz Fabianski continues to stand in. Poor old Kalvin Phillips, chided and derided, can’t catch a break right now: he’s on the subs’ bench again.

Spurs make three changes after their narrow 2-1 win over Luton Town. Micky Van de Ven, Rodrigo Bentancur and Brennan Johnson get the nod ahead of Radu Dragusin, Pape Matar Sarr and Dejan Kulusevsk, all of whom drop to the bench.

Preamble

These two teams, boy oh boy. So let’s see. West Ham are coming off the back of a match they managed to lose despite having been 3-1 up with 13 minutes to play; Spurs meanwhile lost their last away fixture 3-0, and won the one preceding that by four goals. So good luck predicting which way tonight’s game is going to go. Chances are, though, it’ll be a doozy. Kick off at the London Stadium is 8.15pm. Mayhem ahoy! It’s on!
