We bring you the latest form and team news from Tottenham and West Ham:
Antonio Conte has a reputation of being a savior and transformer. So far, his experiment with Tottenham has not been as straightforward as expected. Spurs simply turn up in some matches and switch off in others, unable to find the consistency they had in Conte’s early days.
They have won 4 and remarkably, lost 6 of their last 10 games in all competitions, even losing to a struggling Burnley side who are in a relegation battle. They sit in 8th position, three points off the final European spot, and have 2 games in hand. Spurs have also managed a haul of 42 goals, conceding 35, with Heung Min Son leading their scorers’ charts with 11 goals and 5 assists.
For their team news, Spurs will be without Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga, who are sidelined with pubitis and a knee injury, respectively.
The Hammers have been one of the sides to watch out for this season but have seen their form falter in recent weeks. A run of 3 away losses ended as they won at home to Aston Villa, giving them confidence as they host Sevilla in the Europa League. They lost the first leg of their tie with Sevilla by 1 goal to nil and hope to overturn the deficit at the London Stadium.
West Ham occupy the final European spot, with 48 points from 29 league games. They have won 2, drawn 2, and lost 1 of their last 5 games in the league, and will hope those dropped points do not come back to haunt them with Wolves and Tottenham lurking behind. Their top scorers are Jared Bowen and Michail Antonio, with 8 goals each.
For suspensions and injuries, David Moyes’s men will travel without Angelo Ogbonna, who remains on the sidelines after rupturing his cruciate ligament. He is expected to return at the end of July.
