Janssen delivers Twitter message to Tottenham fans ahead of trip to West Ham
By Danny Wright
Vincent Janssen has taken to Twitter to tell Tottenham fans that he is hoping to see the club extend their winning streak against West Ham on Friday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side going into their trip to the London Stadium in the hope that they can turn up the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea, who don’t play until Monday.
Spurs have won their last nine league games in a row and if they can extend that run to ten, they will be just a point behind Chelsea before they welcome Middlesbrough to Stamford Bridge three days later.
Janssen, 22, has struggled to adapt to life at White Hart Lane since moving from AZ Alkmaar last summer, but he is keen to play a big part in their Premier League run-in.
“Let’s continue our winning streak in the Premier League. Tomorrow, West Ham away,” said the ten-time Netherlands international on his personal Twitter account.

Janssen has scored just six goals in 35 appearances across all competitions this season. However he has been limited to just 12 starts due to the form of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.
Only seven of those starts have come in the league and Janssen has only featured for three minutes in the last three games, although in that short amount of time he managed to find a goal in the 4-0 thrashing of Bournemouth.
In other Tottenham news, Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has said why Spurs are behind Chelsea in the title race.
