London derby at the Hotspur arena
Tottenham welcome West Ham to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Both teams went into the international break in mighty fine form making this derby all the more interesting.
Mourinho's lads made headlines across the world when they decimated a disoriented Manchester United with 6-1 at old Trafford.
A changed man?
When appointed as Spurs manager, Mourinho announced that he had adapted to the modern game and changed some of his methods for the better. Apparently, he was telling the truth because the way this Tottenham side has been playing since the start of the season is vastly different to what we have been accustomed to regarding Mourinho's previous sides.
The Lilywhites have scored 12 goals in their first 4 games whilst conceding 5. A common theme is that all games have included a plethora of chances and have been highly entertaining, aspects not really seen in previous Mourinho teams.
With Kane and Son firing on all cylinders, no team is safe.
The Hammers seemed to be in some sort of free-fall prior to the start of the season after a lack of investment in players, things only got worse after they lost both of their opening games which sent fans into some sort of frenzy on social media, despite playing quite decently.
Unforeseen turn of events
However, something happened and David Moyes men outplayed the hell out of both Wolverhampton and Leicester in the following matchups with 4-0 and 3-0 respectively.
The victories showcased the fact that West Ham are, when they feel like it, a force to be reckoned, something Tottenham will have to be acutely aware after shipping so many goals in their opening games.
Both teams have been involved in high-scoring games which is why i will be backing a Tottenham win and over 2.5 goals at the fantastic odds of 2.25 with Betway.
