Premier League tips: Best bets for Tottenham v West Ham

Andrew Pennington's best bets for West Ham's trip to Spurs include a win for the hosts with a winger getting on the scoresheet.

Tottenham v West Ham best bets

Tottenham to win and both teams to score @ 19/10
Dejan Kulusevski to score @ 11/5
Over 3.5 goals @ 6/5

Tottenham ended their three-game losing streak with a dramatic 3-3 draw with Manchester City at the weekend and now Ange Postecoglou’s side take on West Ham in this midweek Premier League treat.

The Hammers have been solid this season but have struggled against the top teams so will need to perform better than they did in their 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Tottenham to win entertaining match-up

Tottenham have now gone four games without a victory but can bring that run to an end against West Ham.

Spurs have been dealing with a major injury crisis recently but have stuck to their attacking philosophy under Ange Postecoglou, as demonstrated by their 3-3 draw with Manchester City.

Postecoglou is set to receive a major boost with central defender Cristian Romero returning from suspension for this clash, meaning their defence can return to sporting three of their four starters.

With Romero’s return, Spurs’ attacking efforts should be enough to see them get the better of a West Ham team that have struggled defensively.

The Hammers have conceded 24 times in 14 games, after the weekend’s games only Brighton had allowed more in the top 12 of the Premier League.

David Moyes’ men have also struggled when facing the top teams this term – they have faced four of the current top six and have taken just a point from those matches.

Tottenham should have too much going forward for these opponents and are fancied to get the victory.

However, ten of Spurs’ last 12 matches have seen both teams score and a repeat of that looks likely in what should be a thriller.

Kulusevski to find the net

With James Maddison injured, Dejan Kulusevski has featured in a more central role in recent matches for Tottenham and seems to be flourishing.

The Swede has scored twice in his last four matches and is now the second-highest goalscorer for his club behind Heung-min Son.

Take Kulusevski to continue his strong start to the campaign by getting on the scoresheet in this one.

High-scoring affair likely

Tottenham’s attacking style of play has brought them plenty of success under new manager Ange Postecoglou, but it does mean that the games they play are often open.

Opponents West Ham are no strangers to a high-scoring affair either, with eight of their 14 matches this term going over 3.5 goals.

This looks set to be another entertaining match-up and four or more goals to be scored is the pick.
