West Ham United could be without a handful of players for tonight’s league clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

Jose Fonte, Sam Byram and Edimilson Fernandes remain sidelined with injury while left back Aaron Cresswell limped off against West Bromwich Albion and will require a check-up before the game.

Meanwhile, Diafra Sakho, Andre Ayew and Michail Antonio are all doubts after missing Tuesday’s win at home to West Brom.

Tottenham, on the other hand, are expecting Harry Kane to return to the starting XI after he was benched against Swansea on Tuesday.

The Premier League top scorer, with 18 strikes this term, came on as a substitute in that match as he recovered from illness.

Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose will have late fitness tests while Victor Wanyama is once again fit for selection.

Toby Alderweireld is the prominent absentee for Spurs.

The Hammers moved out of the relegation zone with a hard-fought comeback win over West Brom on Tuesday with Andy Carroll grabbing a brace, including a stoppage time winner, to secure the three points.

Spurs also won, beating Swansea 2-0 with Fernando Llorente and Dele Alli bagging goals.

It is only two days of rest for these sides but Tottenham will be eyeing the chance to move to within one point of the top four if they pick up all three points.

West Ham are also desperate for the points and victory would see them climb to 11th with a four point cushion over the bottom three.

Spurs won the clash between these two sides in the league earlier this season, taking a 3-0 lead before Serge Aurier was shown red and Javier Hernandez and Cheikhou Kouyate gave them a late scare.

But the East London side grabbed their revenge at Wembley in the Carabao Cup.

Trailing 2-0 at half-time, Andre Ayew scored twice and Angelo Ogbonna headed in the winner to complete a remarkable 3-2 turnaround win.

West Ham fans will be hoping for more of the same tonight as they look to make it three games without a loss.
