Antonio reveals what the West Ham players think of Slaven Bilic

Former Premier League star Michael Owen has tipped Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham to be victorious over their Saturday lunchtime opponents West Ham United this weekend when the two meet at the London Stadium.

An old-school target man, Carroll will provide a stern physical test for Tottenham's centre-back trio, but played through the middle, it's likely he'll find himself one-on-one with Davinson Sanchez, the middle of the back three, more often than not.

"With the bad start we had, the last three games have been positive".

As for Spurs, Harry Kane will return to the starting eleven, after being rested in the 1-0 Carabao Cup win over Barnsley.

Michail Antonio has earned plaudits in his outings this season, and with Manuel Lanzini injured will likely represent West Ham's primary creative outlet.

Tottenham travel to the London Stadium on Saturday to face West Ham, against whom Dier made his debut three years ago and scored the victor in a 1-0 victory.

Four minutes later, West Ham again played long to Carroll.

With a London derby against West Ham looming for Tottenham on Saturday, Pochettino believes his title-chasing team will benefit from bonding over the dinner table.

But West Ham were handed a lifeline in the 65th minute when Hernandez headed in a reply after Jose Fonte had flicked on Aaron Cresswell's corner.

It ended with heavy tension and some fraying tempers, as West Ham made a stirring comeback that had looked improbable when 3-0 down to a strutting, strolling Spurs.

"He is totally different to Carroll so I think they can play two styles". For the Hammers, Andy Carroll is available at 3/1 odds.

Tottenham manager Pochettino had taken a 49-strong group of players and club staff out for a mid-week meal at a London steak restaurant to strengthen the bond within the squad.

Gold also includes an extensive selection of shoulder programming such as Premier League News, Premier League Today and NBC Sports originals such as Premier League Download and much more.

That West Ham gained further control of midfield after his 78th minute substitution was a positive sign of his influence. I expect it from him and I want to see it more regularly.

Dembele, when fit and on form, is an integral cog in Tottenham's possession play, with the Belgian's range of passing and vision a key element for the North London side in the final third.
