West Ham host Tottenham in a midweek clash as the two London rivals look to position themselves inside the European places with the Premier League season quickly coming to an close.

David Moyes’ outfit suffered a heart-breaking and dramatic collapse against Newcastle in their last outing, letting slip a 3-1 lead at St. James’ Park to lose 4-3. That defeat means Eddie Howe’s team are just one point behind the Hammers in the table with both teams fighting to finish inside the top seven.

Losing such a crucial match adds more pressure on this evening’s encounter as West Ham will need to take points away from fifth placed Spurs in order to regain some momentum.

Tottenham scored another late winner to beat Luton 2-1 at the weekend which kept up their chase of finishing inside the top four. Ange Postecoglou’s men are three points behind Aston Villa, who are away to Manchester City, and Spurs have a game in hand on the midlands club.

West Ham 0-1 Tottenham

10 mins: So close to a second for Spurs! Udogie wins the ball high up on the left and gives it to Son. He switches it to Porro and the Spaniard’s low drive is just wide of the right post with Fabianski beaten.

West Ham 0-1 Tottenham

7 mins: West Ham look for an immediate response from a corner but Romero does well to block Kudus’ hacked effort over the bar for another set-piece.

This time the visitors clear it at the first time of asking.

GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Tottenham (Johnson, 5 mins)

The visitors take the lead!

The first real Spurs attack of the game and Johnson has the ball in the back of the net. Werner is released down the left and flashes a fierce low ball across the six-yard box which the Welshman diverts past Fabianski and into the back of the net.

He was rewarded with a start after his great cameo appearance against Luton on the weekend and is certainly making the most of it.

West Ham 0-0 Tottenham

3 min: A slow start to this one as the rain continues to pour down on the players but the game almost springs into life as Kudus flashes a low cross into the box.

Bowen isn’t quite expecting the ball to fall to him and he ends up shinning it wide of the post. A great early chance for the Hammers, that.

Comeback kings

Ange Postecoglou’s side have made a habbit of coming from behind to win in recent weeks and did so again at the weekend to beat Luton. So far this campaign, Tottenham have already won 22 points from losing positions, their third most in a single campaign after 2010-11 (24) and 2012-13 (23).

Will they be required to produce another tonight?

Jarrod Bowen eyes history books

Jarrod Bowen is the man in-form for West Ham. The winger scored at the weekend against Newcastle and now has 15 Premier League goals this season. Only Paolo Di Canio (16 in 1999-00) has ever netted more in a single campaign for West Ham United.

Can the Englishamn bag another tonight?
