Hammers hoping to pile misery on AVB at White Hart Lane.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is sensing blood ahead of his team’s visit to White Hart Lane, admitting that he hopes to take advantage of a Spurs side who are lacking in confidence and will be fatigued after a tough midweek trip to Rome in the Europa League. Indeed, Tottenham have lost four out of their last five league games, in contrast to the Hammers who are unbeaten in three.
