Toby Alderweireld has warned Tottenham of Marko Arnautovic’s quality ahead of the derby against West Ham on Saturday.
Tottenham have a couple of big games after the game against the Hammers as we play PSV in the Champions League and face Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Belgian was quoted by the Evening Standard as he wanted the side to be at their best:
“Arnautovic is a very good, player. He is quick, smart, strong and he can score. He’s an all-round player so we have to be at our top level to beat them.
“It’s a derby and it’s always difficult there.”
Arnautovic has been brilliant for West Ham and scored in their win over Manchester United recently. The 29-year-old has four goals and an assist in the Premier League from seven games and will be a threat against us.
Tottenham also have to be wary of a few others at West Ham. Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko can be deadly on their day, and it will be important for us to keep them in check on Saturday.
Spurs might have lost a couple of games this season in the Premier League but we aren’t that far away from the top of the table.
We lie just a couple of points behind the league-leading trio and hopefully, a win over the Hammers can take us to the top of the table on Saturday.
