West Ham looked in dire straits after losing their first two Premier League games of the season but have bounced back with terrific wins over Wolves and Leicester.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are flying after thumping Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford and would be on a run of three straight wins were it not for a controversial late VAR penalty in their previous game against Newcastle.
Spurs' next four fixtures look winnable and Jose Mourinho's side will be keen to justify recent tentative talk of a title challenge.
Date, time and venue
Tottenham vs West Ham is scheduled for a 4:30pm BST kick-off today on Sunday, October 18, 2020.
The match will be behind closed doors at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

Jose Mourinho will be sweating on the fitness of some of his England internationals, including Harry Kane, who complained of muscle fatigue during the international break, and Eric Dier, but could hand Gareth Bale a second Spurs debut.
Craig Dawson has arrived at West Ham on loan from Watford and could make his debut.

Predicted West Ham (3-5-2) XI: Fabianski; Creswell, Ogbonna, Balbuena; Coufal, Masuaku, Rice, Soucek, Fornals; Bowen, Antonio
