But West Ham have endured a torrid first campaign at the former Olympic Stadium, and Bilic has warned Spurs they could struggle too.

In terms of injuries for the game, Pochettino will still be without left back Danny Rose for the game due to a knee injury but the fullback is due to start full training again next week.

Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama says they still believe they can win the title. But this side is more balanced, potent, secure and consistently good at the right time.

"If you want to be a champion you have to win. How?"

Pochettino also said he would seek talks with West Ham counterpart Slaven Bilic about the difficulties of adapting to a new stadium.

Slaven Bilic has revealed that Nemanja Matic sent him a pre-match text message urging West Ham to beat Tottenham on Friday night.

"We have to do it with a limited budget and Spurs have shown us - either because they were lucky or they had great scouts - that what they are doing is the way". "We have only three games to reduce the gap", he said.

"We have to keep going, try to play better and win the three points to still be alive in the race for the title", the Argentine coach added.

Mauricio Pochettino's men just edged out West Ham, 3-2, in the earlier fixture between the two teams this season. The pressure is on us to win.

The biggest thing with him - like other top goalies - you have to get traffic on him. "Those guys filled those minutes well". They couldn't match the Rangers' desperation on Tuesday, and now they're in danger of letting a 2-0 series lead slip away.

The Hammers are vying to beat Spurs at home in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1998-99 and 1999-00. They are not excuses, they are one of the reasons why it hasn't been like a year ago.

"At the moment it is so disappointing and so hard to say it has been a very good season".

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte's Blues suffered a mini-blip to have their lead at the top of the table cut to just four points.

What has proved costly for Tottenham are the dropped points in the opening months of the season.

It is a painful prospect for a Tottenham side that had won their previous nine league games to spark dreams of a first title since 1961. He is awesome. The fans also were unbelievable and they are always like this.

Harry Kane has scored 18 goals in his last 20 Premier League London derbies.

Dele Alli's follow-up was blocked back to Kane on the edge of the area and the Tottenham striker looked certain to score, yet once again he was denied as Adrian's out-stretched leg deflected it over.

Probability of away win: 58%.
