Reshuffled Hammers can Nail down newfound Supremacy

Just gimme a chance...
Today's tussle with neighbours Totttenham Hotspur provides the Hammers with an ideal opportunity to demonstrate how they are dast becoming the top dogs on the east side of the city.

Despite the loss of playmaker Dimitri Payet, Slaven Bilic's squad appears to have adequate depth to reshuffle and adapt. Today's game will allow Bilic to roll out his preferred solution with Manuel Lanzini likely to move to the central position that Payet has patrolled to such great effect so far this season.

That would mean Mauri Zarate - an outcast during the Allardyce reign - taking up a starting position out right. However, an intriguing alternative would be to unleash the so far unrealised talents of Michail Antonio upon the Spurs defence.

Speaking of which, after a lukewarm start Spurs are on a decent run with Harry Kane banging in the goals again with 5 in his last three games.

For West ham, Diafra Sakho is back and ready to add some pace an aggression to the Hammers attack.

We predict a 2-1 scoreline in favour of the visitors.
