John Barnes explains his Tottenham v West Ham prediction

Tottenham Hotspur will face West Ham United at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday.

Former Liverpool and Newcastle United winger John Barnes has predicted on that Tottenham Hotspur will win against West Ham United at home this weekend.

Tottenham will host London rivals West Ham at White Hart Lane on Sunday, and the former England international expects the home team to win 2-1.

“West Ham seem to do well against the big teams, so it wouldn’t be a complete shock to see them get something from this,” Barnes wrote on “That said I think home advantage will be key. Goalscorer – Harry Kane."

Tottenham will head into Sunday’s encounter against West Ham on the back of a 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the North London derby.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are fifth in the Premier League table at the moment with 21 points from 12 matches.

Spurs are just three points behind fourth-place Manchester United and five behind leaders Manchester City.

Meanwhile, West Ham currently find themselves level on 21 points with Tottenham and a place behind due to an inferior goal difference.

The Hammers will head into Sunday’s London derby at White Hart Lane on the back of a 1-1 draw with Everton.

Slaven Bilic’s have not won in their last two league games, but they have lost only one of their last nine league matches.
