On Thursday, the offer is somewhat weaker than it was in the previous few days, and this time we have analyzed the encounter in London where Tottenham and West Ham will measure their strengths. The start of this match is scheduled for 9:15 PM.
Tottenham: Can the Spurs triumph after four rounds?
The popular Spurs did not celebrate much last season, as the club from London ultimately finished the championship in eighth place on the table, which further implies that we will not see this club in any of the European competitions this season. Numerous changes occurred during the past summer at White Hart Lane, as the club was left by long-time captain Harry Kane, who decided to continue his career at Bayern Munich, and on top of that, the Spurs got a new coach, Ange Postecoglou, who had quite successfully worked at Celtic in the previous two seasons.
There were also several interesting reinforcements, primarily thinking of Madison from Leicester, although it is a big question whether this player would change the environment if Leicester had not been relegated from the Premier League. The Spurs played quite a few top-notch matches in the opening few games, and until recently, this team was unexpectedly in first place on the table. Then a black streak followed, as Tottenham does not know triumph in the last four matches, so before this round, the former Champions League finalist had to be satisfied with the fifth position, which at the end of the championship brings placement in the Europa League, which would probably satisfy all fans of this club at the end of the season, especially since the club from London, as we have already mentioned, does not represent England in any of the European competitions this time.
In fourteen played matches, Postecoglou’s charges achieved eight triumphs, three draws, and the same number of defeats, and it is interesting that those three failures came in the last four rounds, when Tottenham, in addition to three defeats, also experienced a draw in the last round in a spectacular match against Manchester City when it was 3:3, with a goal by Kulusevski in the 90th minute of the match. At home, the team from London has so far played six duels and achieved four triumphs with two defeats, and the last in the series occurred two weeks ago when Aston Villa, which is playing great this season, celebrated with 1:2.
Otherwise, Postecoglou has huge personnel problems, as he will not be able to count on Bentancur, Madison, Perisic, Sessegnon, Solomon, Whiteman, and Van de Ven for this duel, while Dier and Sarr are under a big question mark. Finally, the last head-to-head duel between Tottenham and West Ham was played in mid-February this year when the Spurs celebrated without much trouble with 2:0.
West Ham: Quite good performances lately!
Certainly, last season will remain in the memory of all West Ham fans for a long time, as this team managed to win a European trophy, by winning the Conference League after a great triumph in the final against Italian Fiorentina, with a score of 1:2. This victory and the winning of the Conference League somehow broke the myth that English clubs are not too interested in the newly formed Conference League. However, the popular Hammers did not celebrate much in the last edition of the world’s highest-quality league, as they finished the season only in fourteenth place in the table, although it seems that all this was quickly forgotten after winning the third highest quality European club competition, as it brought the English representative a place in the group stage of the Europa League.
Speaking of the Europa League, with one round to go, West Ham is in first place in the table with the same number of points as second-placed Freiburg, and these two teams will decide next Thursday which team will secure direct qualification to the round of 16 of the second highest quality European club competition, and which will have to go to the round of 32. In the last round, against all expectations, West Ham celebrated with quite a lot of trouble in their visit to TSC from Bačka Topola, with a score of 0:1, and the winning goal was made by Souček in the final moments of the match. This season, the team from London is playing variably in the Premier League, and after fourteen played matches, David Moyes’ charges are in ninth position with six points less than fifth-placed Tottenham, where they are guests in this round. Lately, the Hammers have been playing quite well, so this team is undefeated in the last three league matches, achieving two victories and one draw in that period.
It all started with the match against Nottingham when West Ham celebrated with 3:2, then the current Conference League winner was better in the visit to Burnley (1:2), after Souček’s goal in the first minute of stoppage time, and it should be noted that the home team led 1:0 until the 86th minute of the match. Finally, in the last round, West Ham only drew at their stadium against Crystal Palace, and that match ended with a score of 1:1. In away games so far, in seven played matches, the team from London has achieved three victories, one draw, and three defeats, and David Moyes does not have too many personnel problems for this duel against Tottenham, the only one he cannot count on is the injured Antonio.
