West Ham are reasonably solid at Upton Park, where Chelsea have already tasted defeat this season but the Hammers form at present makes for grim reading – they’ve won just of their last 13 matches – so it’s hard to see them hampering Spurs’ bid for a Champions League place.
For their part Tottenham’s FA Cup reverse against Leeds is their only loss in 14 outings in all competitions and that kind of form makes them decent value at 6/5 courtesy of Betfred to make the short journey back to North London three points better off.
In the reverse fixture, Andre Villas-Boas’ side registered a 3-1 triumph, a repeat of which is an 18/1 shot at Stan James. However, as they don’t enjoy home advantage on this occasion a closer affair could be on the cards and BetVictor offer an alluring 17/2 about them bagging the game’s only goal.
Gareth Bale meanwhile, was on target when the pair met at White Hart Lane and he’ll be the subject of the bulk of the first scorer cash at odds of 5/1 (bet365).
