Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood will look to strengthen his win percentage statistics with yet another victory in Saturday's early kickoff. Though it seems to have been largely by fluke, Spurs' interim boss has led the club to within just three points of fifth-placed Everton in an impressive run of form.
They would provisionally shut that gap down completely with a win away at West Ham United, which, given the Hammers' recent form, wouldn't come as a surprise at all. Sam Allardyce's side are playing like a side with nothing at stake, despite the outside chance of them still being relegated. Heading into this fixture, they're five points clear of the bottom three, and fans are growing increasingly unhappy.
For this match they'll only be without Italian striker Marco Borriello, though he's contributed nothing of note since arriving on loan in January. Spurs' injury list is rather more problematic, with Sherwood still without a string of first-team regulars, including Jan Vertonghen, Roberto Soldado, Andros Townsend and Kyle Walker. Harry Kane will likely maintain his starting spot alongside Emmanuel Adebayor up top.
