West Ham United are in Premier League action this evening.

The West Ham United players were training on Tuesday ahead of the London derby against Tottenham Hotspur at the Boleyn Ground.

West Ham will take on Tottenham at home in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

The players were training hard on Tuesday, and among those who attended the session was Sam Byram (see photo above).

Byram, who joined West Ham from Championship side Leeds United in the January transfer window, is unavailable for the London derby against Tottenham.

The 22-year-old right-back, who can also play as a right-winger, is suspended for the match.

In fact, the English youngster is suspended for the league game against Everton on Saturday and is ineligible to feature in the Hammers’ FA Cup quarter-final tie against Manchester United later this month.

Byram seems to be training as usual, though, and it is certainly going to help him maintain his fitness.

West Ham are sixth in the Premier League table at the moment with 43 points from 27 matches.

Slaven Bilic’s side are just four points behind Manchester City, who are currently fourth in the standings and have a game in hand.
