West Ham v Tottenham
Wednesday February 2, 19:45 GMT
The Hammers kept up the pressure on Manchester United for fifth place and a spot in next season's Europa League by beating Sunderland 1-0 on Saturday lunchtime. That result extended their unbeaten run at home in the league to 11 games, with four of the last five being victories.
Slaven Bilić's side welcome the current title favourites to the Boleyn for this one but that won't phase them as they have already beaten Liverpool and Chelsea here this term, as well as holding Everton and Man City. They have done even better when faced with daunting away tasks as well, with wins secures at Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City.
Dimitri Payet is the man of the moment for West Ham and he will again be the focal point of their play, no matter who he lines up with in the attacking areas. It's also interesting to note that their worst result of the campaign came in the reverse fixture at White Hart Lane - a game in which Payet missed through injury.
Spurs passed another big test on Sunday by not only winning a crucial match after midweek Europa action, but they also did it from a goal down. That showed great resolve but there's no time to pat themselves on the back as they now have to face West Ham, Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund over a nine day period.
Mauricio Pochettino's men have an exemplary record away from the Lane this season as since an opening day defeat at Old Trafford, they have not been beaten again. Five of their last six on the road have ended in victory, with the latest being a hugely impressive 2-1 success at Manchester City.
Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele remain sidelined for Spurs but Harry Kane will continue to play despite his broken nose. He may not have scored in the weekend win over Swansea, but his presence alone gives them a huge boost.
West Ham 4.1 Tottenham 2.0621/20 The Draw 3.65
Here we have a very strong home team against a very strong away team, and while the visitors are stronger overall, all the pressure is on them and West Ham are twice their price.
This has got to go down as a home win on a pure value basis and I wouldn't even see it as an upset if The Hammers do indeed take all three points.

The stats aren't overly pointing in either direction here and that is reflected in the odds. West Ham have had 14 of their 27 fixtures go over 2.5 this year but eight of those 14 came away from home and their last eight scorelines in front of their own fans read - 1-1, 1-1, 0-0, 2-1, 2-0, 2-2, 2-0 and 1-0.
Spurs have an identical record in the fact that they have also had 14 reward over 2.5 backers, but four of those did come from their five most recent away trips.
It could really go either way and as the prices are so tight, I am happy to give this market a miss on this occasion.
I quite like a 2-1 correct score as our cash out option this time as I can't see there being more than one goal between the two teams at the end and I can't imagine that we'll be in for a huge goal-fest either.
I have already nailed my colours to West Ham's mast so with 2-1 trading at around the 15.5 mark, I think that offers a fairly decent opportunity to cash out for a profit at some stage of the match.
Back West Ham @ 4.1
