Kane nets brace as Spurs survive West Ham scare

West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur – betting tips and predictions		Posted by Vyom Chaudhary

Harry Kane admits Tottenham breathed a sigh of relief after holding off West Ham's fightback to claim a 3-2 win at the London Stadium.

The Belgium worldwide has been a key player for Pochettino's Tottenham in the last two seasons, but the manager increasingly has to pick and choose when he starts, and Dembele has not featured in five of the club's past 10 league games, spanning this season and last.

West Ham played a midweek EFL Cup clash against Bolton, which saw them beat the Championship side 3-0 at the London stadium.

"Those are the patterns that we want to repeat on Saturday", said Hammers manager Slaven Bilic on Thursday. Sat near the bottom of the table in 17th, West Ham have only accumulated four points since the season started; their only win this term coming at home against Huddersfield at the beginning of September. And when Carroll lost them, West Ham's high defensive line was exposed.

Christian Eriksen has overtaken Nicklas Bendtner to become the highest scoring Dane in Premier League history with 33 goals.

Kane scored the first goal in the 34th minute with a glancing header as Cristian Ericksen and Dele Alli combined to set him up.

That goal had come against the run of play, but Spurs were in complete control within four minutes as Hart saved Alli's close-range effort, only for the ball to magnetise towards Kane, who stroked home. Slaven Bilic has given Marko Arnautovic the start, as Andy Carroll drops to the bench. "Well, a first Premier League title would do", she said. Aside from last weekend's blip at Swansea, Mauricio Pochettino's men appear to be rounding into form. There were flashes of real talent against West Ham, but there were also a string of silly fouls in the first half that made a yellow nearly inevitable in the second half. But West Ham wanted it more on that Friday night.

Aurier had picked up a booking just before that goal and six minutes later a shaky game was ended early when he needlessly chopped down Carroll in midfield. I'd prefer to see him deployed at left-back with a winger to support him than this wing-back nonsense, but he looks relatively good defensively and a threat going forwards.

BRIAN DEAR is certainly looking forward to the Hammers huge Premier League London derby with Tottenham Hotspur but thought his former side might have benefited had the game been away from home.
