Tottenham Hotspur vs. West Ham United: Preview and TV schedule

Clive Rose

Tottenham Hotspur should be able to beat a shaky West Ham team at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur have had an impressive start to the Premier League season, currently up in third place and only a couple of points off the top spot. They host West Ham at White Hart Lane on Sunday, and will be hopeful of picking up three points against a team yet to hit their stride.

Despite Hammers boss Sam Allardyce's reputation for building robust Premier League sides, his team have struggled so far this campaign. They've scored only four goals in their opening six games, and haven't won since their opening match of the season. Having fallen to within a point of the relegation zone, they're looking for a quick turnaround.

For this match they will have long-term injured Alou Diarra and Andy Carroll still unavailable, though there's hope Joe Cole will return from a hamstring injury. For Spurs, Étienne Capoue, Younes Kaboul, Aaron Lennon and Emmanuel Adebayor are all sidelined.

Tottenham Hotspur injuries and suspensions

Out: Étienne Capoue (ankle), Younes Kaboul (knee), Aaron Lennon (foot), Emmanuel Adebayor (match fitness). In doubt: None.

West Ham United injuries and suspensions

Out: Alou Diarra (knee), Andy Carroll (foot). In doubt: Joe Cole (hamstring).
