Slaven Bilic: Tottenham can win the Premier League

Owen believes that will indeed be the case on Saturday, and has predicted that Tottenham star-striker Harry Kane will prove the difference between the sides.

It could be West Ham's fourth league defeat of the season already, potentially making Bilic's position untenable. A dominant win here on the road could just show that they're starting to get there, and assuage many of their fans' concerns. Both teams over the past two seasons have won two wins, and they did it exclusively in their native walls. The North London side have eight points from their five games, and now, occupy the fifth spot in the table.

Wednesday's 1-0 Carabao Cup defeat of Barnsley further buried the cliche, but ignoring that Spurs have a problematic relationship with their temporary home would be a honest mistake.

Spurs are looking to win their opening three away games in a league season for the first time since 1991-92.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: "If we repeat everything - because against them you need a complete performance - then we have a chance".

"We play every two to three days and then all are away for worldwide break". Manuel Lanzini, the goal scorer in the previous meeting of the two sides, remains absent with a knee injury, whilst Pedro Obiang is side-lined with a knock. Ben Davies is expected to return at left back, whilst Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose, and Erik Lamela all remain injured.

Speaking ahead of the game, Antonio has now stated that his team-mates are behind their manager by saying, "We always turn up against Spurs".

A draw is available at the best odds of 13/4 while a home win is the least likely outcome at 51/10 odds. Draw in the last round with Swansea 0-0, has become the second in the last 3 matches.

Harry Kane is the most-favourite at 7/8 odds while his teammate Fernando Llorente is available at 11/10 odds.

Andy Carroll replaced the winger and had an immediate impact - but not in the manner he would have wanted.

Palace had the better of the action for much of the first half, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek twice going close to breaking the deadlock, but Leroy Sane's well-taken goal on the stroke of halftime gave City momentum going into the break.

"We have very good communication with the doctor, physio, sports science and coaching staff to try to help him because to help him is to help the team".
