In a battle of the English Premier League, the West Ham squad will face off against Tottenham in what will surely be an exciting matchup on Monday night.
Emotions will indeed be at their peak when the West Ham side pays homage to former team captain Bobby Moore, who tragically passed away twenty years ago. Nonetheless, it is imperative that the hosts remain focused on the task at hand against Tottenham.
Sam Allardyce's club finds themselves in very poor condition, and looking downwards. On the other hand, Tottenham appears to be in tip-top form and is hoping that Gareth Bale can lead them to a victory.
Fortunately for West Ham, its defensive tandem of James Collins and Joey O'Brien should be fit enough to take the field. However, O'Brien will more than likely start the game off on the sidelines.
The Iron will be without the services of George McCartney, as he's still being hindered by an injured hamstring.
Tottenham will more than certainly recall Hugo Lloris and Michael Dawson after they both were rested for Thursday's late Europa League game, but it still seems to be too early for Jermain Defoe and his ailing ankle to return. Tom Huddlestone and Sandro are still out of action as well with knee injuries.
The West Ham versus Tottenham matchup is set to begin on Monday, Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. GMT.
