G. Bale

Position: Midfielder

The Welshman's pace will be a constant threat to West Ham's back four. He also has a sharp eye for goal, scoring seven times in the league this season. He has been plagued by a back injury in recent weeks but has overcome those problems and is fully fit to take his place on the left wing.

D. Ba

Position: Attacker

Games: 0

  • 0

  • 0
The former Hoffenheim striker has been an instant hit at Upton Park after scoring four league goals in four games in the Premier League. He has added presence to the Hammers' attack since joining in the January transfer window and will be looking to keep his goalscoring record going against Tottenham.

Editor's Prediction

There should be goals galore at White Hart Lane this weekend as two good attacking teams lock horns.

Everyone knows about Tottenham's attacking credentials, with the likes of Bale, Van der Vaart and Modric in the side but West Ham are no slouches going forward either.

Avram Grant's side have racked up 15 goals in five matches and look a rejuvenated side.

Tottenham will be full of confidence following their progression to the quarter-finals of the Champions League but West Ham will be hoping to capitalise on a European hang-over at the Lane.
