Tottenham Hotspur went into the international break on a high after beating Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford. Now they will return to Premier League action against bitter rivals West Ham United and they will host the Hammers at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.
Spurs have two wins and a draw from their first four games. Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min have looked exceptional of late and will be raring to go again. A win over their London rivals could see Spurs get on a winning streak as they have some relatively easy fixtures coming up.
Meanwhile, West Ham have been in good form themselves. Having lost the opening two fixtures of the new season, the Hammers registered resounding wins over Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Jose Mourinho will want his team to secure all three points and have themselves identified as title-challengers.
