Tottenham Hotspur v West ham United Betting Preview 27/04/2019
The new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has caused pangs of jealousy among football fans up and down the country. It may have been delivered late and over budget but there is little doubt that it is the best football stadium in England and should play a very big part in some real future success for the North London club.
Mauricio Pochettino and his players are proud to be playing at the ‘New White Hart Lane’ as it’s been dubbed by supporters, but they are not allowing themselves to get carried away with what might happen in the future.
There are two very important jobs to be done this season. In addition to their current Champions League campaign which gets back underway next week with the first leg of their semi-final against Ajax, Tottenham must ensure their participation in next season’s Champions League by securing a top four place in the Premier League.
West Ham Could be Dangerous Even With Spurs’ Quality
Christian Eriksen’s late, late winner against Brighton on Tuesday night confirmed that Tottenham have very much snapped out of the poor run of form that threatened their top four place.
The move to their new home has certainly provided a boost to everybody at the club at just the right time and the Brighton win was their fourth in four matches at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The stadium has already hosted some huge matches including a London derby and a Champions League quarter-final and the Spurs fans who turn up on Saturday will be very much looking forward to the visit of West Ham.
It’s safe to say there is no love lost between these two teams. The atmosphere will be buzzing come kick-off and Manuel Pellegrini will hope that brings the best out of his players. Some West Ham fans have accused their players of mentally checking out of the season many weeks ago, but they did play well against both Manchester United and Leicester so were unfortunate to pick up just one point from those matches.
Although the Tottenham players clearly come into Saturday’s match with more motivation, the fact that West Ham have nothing to lose makes them dangerous. Therefore, the first betting option to seriously consider is both teams to score which is available at 7/10 with Ladbrokes.
Another tempting option to consider is the 13/10 that Coral are quoting on over 3.5 goals being scored as some top quality attacking players will take to the pitch for each side.
Anderson to Relish the Big Stage
West Ham have been looking to fill the void left by Dimitri Payet ever since he left for Marseillie in acrimonious fashion in January 2018. The way that Felipe Anderson took to life in the Premier League had West Ham fans hoping that they’d found their man but the Brazilian has since struggled for consistency.
One of the fair criticisms of Anderson is that he saves his best for the biggest stages. That’s an accusation you could fairly make against many West Ham players, so they should pose a real threat going forward against Tottenham in front of the TV cameras. Anderson’s pace, dribbling ability and finishing nous means he looks a good bet to score anytime at best betting odds of 9/2 with Betfred.
