Two sides who entered the international break enjoying a real free-scoring run, London bragging rights will be up for grabs when Tottenham host West Ham from behind closed doors on Sunday afternoon.

Putting in what was a stunning display away at Old Trafford earlier in the month, Spurs managed to hit Manchester United for six and suddenly find themselves in the midst of a very impressive seven-match unbeaten run across all competitions, recording six victories.

On the flip side, despite a sluggish start to the 2020/2021 campaign, West Ham were last seen picking up their own eye-catching win prior to the break as the Hammers landed a 3-0 romp away at Leicester.

However, while Sunday’s guests might have managed to collect shock back-to-back victories against the Foxes and Wolves, they do hold what is a concerning record against their London rivals.

With Spurs picking up a 2-0 win the last time West Ham came to town, you might be interested to know that a similar home victory this weekend can be found priced at 4/7 with EnergyBet.

Gareth Bale’s second debut

Coming from behind in what was rampant fashion away at Manchester United earlier in the month, Spurs would have even shocked themselves as they managed to leave Old Trafford with a stunning 6-1 win.

Showing a string of improvements since opening the New Year with a sluggish 1-0 loss against Everton on the opening weekend, Jose Mourinho’s men now find themselves in the midst of a seven-match unbeaten run and the mood in their camp should be at a red-hot high.

With a growing reputation for their performances in the final third after bagging 13 strikes in back-to-back victories, Sunday’s hosts will be desperate to see their returning icon make an immediate impact in North London.

Shocking many after making a loan switch from Real Madrid after leaving Tottenham for the Spanish capital back in 2013, Gareth Bale is in line to make his second debut this weekend and could partner Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in the attack.

You might be interested to know, the Wales international can be found priced at 6/4 with Paddy Power to find the net on his return this weekend.

The Hammers on the up?

While West Ham might have had the feel of a club in the midst of a crisis as they opened the New Year with a 2-0 defeat at home against Newcastle, the Hammers have bounced back in some style.

Along with shocking almost everyone up and down the country as they hit Wolves for four in the capital last month, David Moyes’ men managed to build off of that result as they eventually breezed past Leicester on their travels.

Picking up a 3-0 romp at the King Power and managing to land back-to-back victories for the first time in recent memory, the former Manchester United boss will be hugely excited by Michail Antonio’s continued purple patch.

Along with watching January arrival Jarrod Bowen bag a brace against the Foxes last time and cash in on his own stunning start, the former Nottingham Forest star has quickly become West Ham’s MVP.

In fact, Antonio is the first West Ham player to score in five successive Premier League away games, with the forward netting eight goals in this run.

You might be interested to know that the 30-year-old can be found priced at 7/5 with Unibet to extend on that remarkable tally this weekend.
