Can he continue? Kane's super London derby record

Nathan Holland

A tough London derby turned into a stroll and then back again as Tottenham secured a 3-2 victory away against West Ham in Saturday's early kick-off.

After the interval, it was all City, and it was not long before they had their second, with Sane turning provider this time for Raheem Sterling to slot home six minutes after the interval.

Tottenham survived a late scare against West Ham to take three points at the London Stadium.

But Spurs held on to claim a third win in three away games, a record that eases the pressure over their continuing problems in their temporary home at Wembley, where they have yet to win in the league.

SLAVEN BILIC wants West Ham to hammer an early dent in Tottenham's title ambitions tomorrow.

In the Premier League, Tottenham, despite being a far better team than their East London rivals throughout that period, have won at West Ham just once in the past four seasons and lost 1-0 there in their past two visits.

Here are the lineups for the West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur match.

The striker has scored 19 goals in London derbies, and, with his annual August slow start behind him, seems nearly certain to extend that tally against West Ham.

Until then, the story of the game had been Spurs' attacking trident of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen putting Slaven Bilic's team to the sword. "We have some players who deserved to be included but they are not".

"They were mostly just up against him - and still he decided the game for them". The on-loan Everton man was the only Bolton player to even attempt to run at the West Ham defence and, despite lacking a telling final ball, actually tried to make something happen. Aside from last weekend's blip at Swansea, Mauricio Pochettino's men appear to be rounding into form.

What is more relevant is the fact that we have now kept three clean sheets in a row, because that is the starting point for what we hope to achieve.

West Ham will likely face a series of changes from their last league outing. "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".

BRIAN DEAR is certainly looking forward to the Hammers huge Premier League London derby with Tottenham Hotspur but thought his former side might have benefited had the game been away from home.
