Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 12:45pm BST. Live coverage is on BT Sport 1. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:20pm BST.


West Ham come into this fixture needing just a point to secure their place in top flight for the upcoming campaign. They are on a four-match losing streak in the league and suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion last Saturday at the Hawthorns courtesy of Saido Berahino's 11th minute goal.

The Hammers currently have 37 points from 36 matches and might as well seal their place in the Premier League if other results go their way on the penultimate match week.

However, Sam Allardyce will be hoping that his players etch out a positive result without leaving his side's fate in the hands of another team.

Meanwhile, Tottenham extended their unbeaten run to four matches in the league after beating Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium. Danny Rose scored his first league goal of the campaign as his header was enough to secure a 1-0 victory for the north London club.

Tim Sherwood's side sit sixth in the table with 66 points after playing 36 matches, three points behind fifth-placed Everton. They have no chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season but could be guaranteed a place in the Europa League if they finish fifth.

The Spurs faced West Ham twice at White Hart Lane this season, once each in the league and the Capital One Cup and lost on both occasions. Sherwood will be hoping that his players can disappoint their opponent by not allowing them to do the double.

What Managers Say

Sam Allardyce: "They come and play and try and open up because of the quality of players that they have. They will think their eleven is better than yours, but on the day if your players hit top form we're more than capable of beating them. We have to be very wary of what their strengths are and make sure their strengths are nullified."

Tim Sherwood: "This is a great game to play in, a big London derby. Obviously, the League Cup game was my first and we dominated but got suckered by a couple of long balls forward, and that's what West Ham are all about. We're expecting that. They won in the league with breakaway goals, we know they have a threat and we will treat them with respect."
