It was tough to recall a more impressive away performance of Tottenham than they displayed at Arsenal a fortnight ago. The Spurs had less time for preparation, yet the stats showed Pochettino’s troop covered more ground the Gunners and that says everything, Tottenham were really disappointed with the 1-1 draw at Emirates. The dream of a top-four finish has already been fired and now they just need to follow the right path against West Ham who have unexpectedly excelled well in big occasions away from home. But the visitors have to find another way to shine without the service of their injured star, Dimitri Payet.
The two rivals from London, level on points, will face each other today as Tottenham welcomes West Ham United at White Hart Lane. Both the teams are only three points behind the Champions League places, so they will be hoping to keep the pressure on the top four teams of the league table.
