Tottenham star: We want revenge on West Ham

Younes Kaboul has admitted that Tim Sherwood’s men want to get one over their London rivals this weekend.

West Ham have been something of a bogey team for Spurs in recent years, with the Hammers winning both of their fixtures against Tottenham this season.

A 3-0 win at White Hart Lane was the first major blip for Andre Villas-Boas earlier this term, while the Hammers also eliminated their rivals from the Capital One Cup.

Younes Kaboul has admitted that revenge will be on the cards for Tottenham this weekend when the teams do battle in the Premier League.

“I know those results hurt, it’s a derby and we want to win this game for ourselves, the fans and for everyone at the club,” he told the club’s official website.

“Every game is important. We have to go there and try to get the three points. If we win there, maybe it will help banish the earlier results.”

Tottenham look likely to finish in sixth this season, with many of the supporters already thinking towards the summer and an upheaval of the playing squad.

Sam Allardyce is under pressure to get a victory as the West Ham fans have also been calling for his head.
