Tottenham expected 3-4-3 v West Ham: Defender axed in two changes
By Amir Mir
Tottenham could make two changes to their side as they take on West Ham in a crucial Premier League clash on Friday evening.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team beat their north London rivals Arsenal 2-0 last time out when Dele Alli and Harry Kane got on the score sheet.
Now, the Argentine could axe two players that started that match with defender Kieran Trippier and attacker Son Heung-Min possibly making way for Kyle Walker and Mousa Dembele.
It is yet another big game in the Premier League title race as Spurs have the chance to close the gap to leaders Chelsea to just one point with a win.
Striker Kane could lead the line once again, with the duo of Alli and Christian Eriksen possibly providing the service and goal threat in behind the England man.

Added to that, Dembele might return to the middle of the park and partner Victor Wanyama, who produced a brilliant defensive display against Arsenal.
The back three might consist of the reliable trio of Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, and Eric Dier.
This could see Walker return to his usual wing-back role following his omission from the north London derby while Davies might continue his place on the left with Danny Rose still out injured.
In between the sticks, the calm and influential Hugo Lloris could also start as he will he hoping to secure his fifth consecutive clean sheet.
