Tottenham takes on West Ham

|

Tottenham remain on the brink of UEFA Champions League qualification. UEFA Champions Leaguewith an eye on a crucial clash against West Ham at the London Stadium on Tuesday.

On the other hand, West Ham suffered a major setback to their European aspirations in the previous match.

In a late theatrical whirlwind on Match Day 30, David Moyes' side squandered a two-goal lead, losing 4-3 to Newcastle United.

Meanwhile, Tottenham orchestrated a remarkable comeback, securing a 2-1 victory over Luton Town at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tottenham Seeks to Raise Level

Initially stunned by Tahith Chong's early goal for Rob Edwards' Luton, Tottenham found their rhythm, equalizing through Issa Kaboré's unfortunate own goal.

A crucial moment came when substitute Brennan Johnson set up the winning goal for Son Heung-min in the 86th minute, sealing Tottenham's Easter revival.

Johnson has been a catalyst for Tottenham's success, boasting six top-flight goals as a substitute this season, while Son Heung-min continues to showcase his goalscoring prowess, scoring at least 15 goals in three of the last four Premier League campaigns.

Notably, five of Son's 15 league goals this season have secured victory for his team, an achievement unmatched by any other player.

Despite the thrilling win, Tottenham still trail fourth-placed Aston Villa by three points, who have played an extra game.

As midweek action approaches, coach Ange Postecoglou is hoping for a quieter trip, aiming to avoid the last-minute theatrics that have defined his season.

Tottenham's resilience has been remarkable, accumulating 22 points from losing positions in the Premier League, behind only Liverpool.

This season's display echoes the remarkable comebacks presented in the 2010-11 and 2012-13 campaigns.

West Ham Needs Victories

In terms of updates for the visiting team, Postecoglou faces the continued absence of long-term absentees Manor Solomon, Fraser Forster and Ryan Sessegnon.

However, there is a glimmer of hope as the recovered pair, Richarlison and Micky van de Ven, return, probably to feature as substitutes following their recent recovery from the win against Luton.

Meanwhile, despite Tottenham's late heroics, West Ham rue the heartbreak they suffered at St. James' Park on Matchday 30.

After taking the lead with goals from Michail Antonio, Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen following Alexander Isak's opener, Moyes' side suffered a change of fortune.

Isak's double, both from the penalty spot against different goalkeepers, was overshadowed by Harvey Barnes' late brilliance, securing an impressive comeback for Eddie Howe's Newcastle.

Bowen, with his 15th Premier League goal this season, can find solace in personal achievement, albeit amidst team disappointment.

However, West Ham remain in seventh place, four points behind Manchester United and narrowly ahead of Newcastle.

As they prepare for Tuesday's clash, Antonio is targeting a milestone, aiming to score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since August 2021.

In addition, the absence of Areola, Nayef Aguerd and Edson Alvarez due to injuries and suspensions further complicates Moyes' team selection.
