Spurs v West Ham - Mauricio's preview
22 November 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Mauricio Pochettino says the players are in flying form after the international break with West Ham now on the horizon.
It’s another London derby - the second of three-successive capital clashes in the Premier League after the draw last time out at Arsenal and Chelsea to follow on Sunday week - with the Hammers at the Lane for a 4pm kick-off.
A large number of the squad were away on international duty - including five with England - but Mauricio has been pleased with what he’s seen this week.
“We’re confident,” said the Head Coach. “The players who came back from internationals are in good condition and the atmosphere has been fantastic in training.”

West Ham’s away form has certainly caught the eye with victories over Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City in the bag.
“For me, this is now tougher than Arsenal because it’s the next game,” added Mauricio. “We know it’s a big derby for them, a big derby for us and for our supporters.
“West Ham’s performances away have been fantastic and this is a very dangerous team. They have very good players, a great manager and in our minds, we expect a tough game.”
