As West Ham yo yo Spurs have sealed the double

Posted on December 28, 2009 by in English Premier League

The was a consensus view that the West Ham vs Tottenham game would result in a 3 -1 win to Tottenham.

At LetsCompareFootball we suspected that Tottenham would win this London Derby. Our view was strengthened further after reading a preview from SpursOdyssey.

The effect of West Ham beating Portsmouth and a well earned draw against Chelsea recently may have been underestimated because Spurs where only allowed to score 2 goals. However, the effect of West Ham’s injuries sustained at the weekend caused the Hammers not to score a goal at all.

The pre match view over at the West Ham blog was particularly good as it predicted that Jermain Defoe would be drafter to play his old club. Defoe took this role with bluster and scored with nine minutes remaining. The return of Ledley King, and especially Luka Modric from injury really boosted Spurs abilities. It was an early strike from Luka Modric who set Tottenham well on their way to three points.

Spursodyssey described Tottenham’s past performances against West Ham to back up their opinion of why Spurs should do the double over West Ham.
