West Ham host Tottenham on Saturday in the Premier League’s biggest clash of the weekend. This London derby always provides drama, intensity and surprising results and the latest instalment looks set to follow that trend.
But ahead of the early kickoff at the London Stadium, Slaven Bilic has some serious selection dilemmas following a summer of impressive recruitment, not least including whether club-record signing Marko Arnautovic should be in the starting line-up.
The last time the 64-cap international started for the Hammers, he was sent off after just 33 minutes for an elbow on Southampton’s Jack Stevens. In his absence, the Irons have turned their poor start to the season around, recording two clean sheets and picking up four points.
