Tottenham were brought crashing down to earth as they lost out 1-0 to West Ham in a London derby. Tottenham were the worse side despite they had the greater share of possession. West Ham were great on the night and thoroughly deserved the three points.
This was Tottenham’s second away defeat since the 1-0 loss against Manchester United at the start of the season as they missed out on the chance to go to the top of the table. Spurs though will not have a lot of time to reflect on the defeat as they take on Arsenal on Saturday.
The Gunners also lost to Swansea at the Emirates and the North London derby could decide who is the best alternative and challenger to Leicester for the Premier League crown. Tottenham need to get the three points and we provide the predicted starting line-up as the derby takes place.
The French international couldn’t do much to stop Michail Antonio from scoring but he will be looking to keep a clean sheet against Arsenal in an important match for all.
Walker was rested for the game against West Ham but surely must get a start against Arsenal.
Alderweireld for once did not look at his best against the Hammers but he and Tottenham will expect a better performance against the Gunners.
The defender was replaced with Tom Carroll in the 77th minute against West Ham but he has to start as the central defender due to Jan Vertonghen’s injury.
Another Tottenham player who was rested against the Hammers, Rose’s ability to run up and down the flank could be crucial to Tottenham’s chances at winning the derby.
The English midfielder seems to be getting better as the season progresses but has to do much better against Arsenal than he did against West Ham.
Mason started the game against West Ham and with Mousa Dembele still not 100% fit, he could continue in his role in the line-up.
The Belgian was replaced by Dele Alli in the last game but should keep his place in the starting XI against Arsenal.
Eriksen was another player who had an off day against West Ham and Spurs fans will be hoping for a better performance from the Danish attacker.
Dele Alli didn’t start against West Ham but he should be played ahead of Erik Lamela for Spurs on Saturday.
Kane might have drawn a blank against West Ham but playing against the old enemy could well fire him and Tottenham up for an important goal or two.
