Why you should back Tottenham

Why you should back West Ham

West Ham have one fewer point on the road than at home and have scored in all 11 road matches in all competitions, They allowed one goal or fewer in seven of those, and two of their three road losses came against top-four sides Liverpool and Aston Villa. They have scored 24 goals and conceded 24 in the 14 league matches. 

Jarrod Bowen is tied for fourth in the league with eight goals, and Mohammed Kudus scored his third of the season last Sunday. The 23-year-old Ghanian is third on the team in goals despite starting just five of his 11 appearances and also has scored twice in four Europa League matches.
