Predicted West Ham United XI: Tottenham Hotspur (A)

Predicted West Ham United XI: Tottenham Hotspur (A) Coming off the back of a point at home to Leicester, West Ham set their sights on rivals Tottenham, where the Hammers look to be the first team to both score at the new stadium, as well as win there. The Leicester game saw disappointment in the way in which the game concluded, with an offside call given against Lucas Perez, who was clearly onside, who rounded the keeper to put the Hammers 3-1 up and secure three points. However, the goal was disallowed and sloppy defending saw Harvey Barnes capitalise, and score in the 92nd minute to secure a point for the visitors.

West Ham are one of a few clubs who are looking to sign Ligue 2 midfielder Pape Gueye this summer.

The Le Havre central midfielder has only made 10 appearances in France’s second tier, mostly coming from the bench, however, has enjoyed a role in the starting XI towards the end of the season.

The 20-year-old has impressed from deep in midfield and, according to L’Equipe, he now looks to be a target for a few Premier League clubs.

These clubs include West Ham, Watford, and Leicester City; three outfits all looking to bolster the heart of their midfield.

Ralph Hasenhuttl talks West Ham, injuries, next season and more Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl sat down with the media on Thursday to discuss various topics ahead of Saturday’s trip to West Ham. Following last weekend’s 3-3 draw with Bournemouth coupled with Cardiff’s 1-0 defeat at Fulham, the Saints were able to secure survival with two games to spare. This means Southampton are able to play these last two games with little pressure and can already start preparing for next season. Hasenhuttl spoke about the next campaign, including the summer transfer window, as well as the ambition of becoming the best of the rest once again.

West Ham will be fighting against their mid-table rivals for Gueye’s signature should they want to improve their squad, with Declan Rice needing support in defensive midfield.

Le Havre are reportedly keen to keep hold of the French midfielder with him being so young, however, there is only a year remaining on his contract leaving his future undecided.

Should the youngster come to the London Stadium this summer, he will certainly provide the defensive partner that Rice has been looking for and will be a very strong addition to Manuel Pellegrini’s squad.
