The West Ham duo of Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike will be hoping to continue on their impressive form as the team host title chaser Tottenham Hotspur FC at the Boleyn Ground in today’s Barclay’s Premier League.
Emenike scored a brace on his full début and Moses netted a goal as the Hammers defeated Blackburn 5 – 1 in the FA Cup to highlight the players’ readiness to improve on their past performance.
The retired Super Eagles striker joined West Ham during the winter transfer from Fenerbahçe and has adjusted to life in England despite initial criticism from the fans.
Both players will be targeting a starting shirt against their London rivals, Tottenham, in a match that is expected to be explosive going by past clashes.
Tottenham are unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League away games but will face a tough task to extend that streak against West Ham, who have exceeded expectations this campaign.
West Ham are sixth in the table with 43 points, just four points outside the Champions League places, but manager Slaven Bilić says the pressure is still very much on his team.
