West Ham v Spurs - Managerial Chit-Chat

West Ham v Spurs - Managerial Chit-Chat

A classic London derby awaits us this Saturday lunchtime when West Ham take on Tottenham Hotspur at the London Stadium.

Ahead of the game, both managers spoke to the media.

Slaven Bilic had this to say,

'They Tottenham are the team that plays the most attractive football and for me they are definitely one of the contenders to win the league.

'We always put in a special kind of performance against them. We still remember the game in May. Those are the patterns that we want to repeat on Saturday.

'If we repeat everything - because against them you need a complete performance - then we have a chance.'

It would be great to repeat that performance West Ham produced in May, the three points would be most welcome.

As for Mauricio Pochettino, the Spurs boss had this to say,

'For all the excitement and desire they show to beat us, we must show the same.

'It is a derby. When you play a derby they try to give their best and try to win. It is our enemy, I understand very well that.

'We know what it means for our fans to play against West Ham. We will try to stay and be ready to compete, fight and be aggressive.'

Enemy aggression, now that`s fighting talk!
