West Ham star Tomas Soucek reveals that the Tottenham Hotspur game is the biggest derby for them

Speaking before the game (h/t football.london), Tomas Soucek has revealed that the game against Tottenham Hotspur is the biggest derby for West Ham United.

The 26-year-old has been a regular for the Hammers this season after his incredible performances last term. However, they now face a stern test against 5th placed Tottenham Hotspur, who are keen on edging their way into the Top 4 this weekend.

Nuno Espirito Santo has quickly readjusted the ship in North London after suffering three consecutive league defeats in September. Victories against Aston Villa and Newcastle United have been crucial to the team’s confidence, but they will face a different animal in West Ham on Sunday.

The two teams had a cracking 3-3 tie in their first league meeting last season while the East London outfit picked up a victory in the second game. West Ham ace Tomas Soucek has now revealed the importance of the game for them. He told reporters in an interview (h/t football.london):

“For us, it is the biggest derby. I especially like this kind of game because it is special for everyone, for the players, and I hope the derby will be ours.

“In the table, it is a very important game because we won against Everton and we want to do the same against Tottenham, so for us, it is a big game in every way, and I hope we get it done… We are confident because this is our way, how we want to play and how we want to be successful.”

Spurs will also be up for the game as they would want to pick up a victory at the London stadium and convert their doubters into believers. 

London derbies are always important, and given that Nuno has lost all three of his derbies this season, a victory against West Ham will instil some confidence amongst the fans as well as the hierarchy that the Portuguese can pull off positive results when it matters the most.
