TEAM FORM ------ Spurs -- LDDLD =------ West Ham --LLWLL
West Ham won 1-0 on our ground last season, but haven't won back to back away league matches against us since November 1966 under Ron Green wood. They have won just one of their last 10 Premier League (PL) games (D2 L7), while away from home they have lost each of their last six. Only Bourne mouth (7) have won fewer PL point so far in 2020 than West Ham (8).
West Ham's Michail Antonio has scored 4 goals in six PL appearances against us, scoring each goal at a different ground (Upton Park, White Hart Lane, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London Stadium). He is one of four players to score at different four grounds against the same opponent in a single PL fixture, along with Steed Malbranque (Fulham v Man City, Christian Eriksen (Everton v Spurs) and Dele Ali (Spurs v Watford).
In all competitions, the away side has won six of the last seven matches between us and West Ham, including each of the last four in a row. The last home win in this fixture was back in 2017, a 1-0 victory for the Hammers.
We are looking to complete a PL double over West Ham for the first time since the 2012-13 season under Vilas-Boas. We have lost our last 2 PL London derbies (both v Chelsea), last losing 3 in a row back in August 2005. We have also lost two PL London derbies (W1), more than we had in our previous 22 (W22 D6 L1). Our win rate against the Hammers in mid week matches (Tuesday to Thursday) is just 17% (W1 D3 L2), compared to 54% on games played between Friday to Monday (W22 D6 L13). Our only midweek victory against the Hammers in the competition came way back in December 1993 (3-1).
We have dropped 5 points from winning positions in our last two home PL games, losing 2-3 against Wolves and drawing 1-1 with Man Utd despite leading. We had only dropped 4 points from winning positions in our previous 23 previous PL home games.
During his entire managerial career, Jose Mourinho has managed more games against David Moyes without losing, than any other Manager (13 W8-D5). Kane has scored 29 goals in just 47 PL London derby matches - only Thierry Henry (43), Frank Lampard (32) and Teddy Sheringham (32) have netted more.
