Tottenham v Blackburn: Spurs seem to be suffering from their Euro exertions and Rovers will be looking to turn this into a real physical battle. Sam Allardyce will think he can leave N17 with a crucial point.

West Ham v Blackpool: The Hammers’ only chance of survival this season is winning their home games. And if you can’t beat a promoted team like Blackpool on your own patch you don’t deserve to stay up. West Ham to nick it by the odd goal.
