Alex Song set to return for West Ham for trip to Tottenham Hotspur


West Ham travel to White Hart Lane this Sunday where they will be welcomed by London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Both teams will hope the international break doesn't effect their form as a win for either side could see them break into the top four.

West Ham look to get back to winning ways having been held to a 1-1 draw against Everton in their previous league game. Tottenham, on the other hand, will look to extend their unbeaten run to 12 - having not lost since they played Manchester United on the opening day of the season.

Spurs will, however, be without winger Nacer Chadli, who misses out with an ankle injury, and Argentinian Eric Lamela who's serving a one-match ban having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Arsenal.

The Irons have their own injury concerns and will be without the in-form Dimitri Payet who is suspected to be sidelined for at least three months. He joins the likes of Enner Valencia (ankle), Pedro Obiang (thigh) and Darren Randolph on the injury list.  

In a more positive light for Hammers fans, defensive midfielder Alex Song is in contention of a place in the team after more six months on the sidelines. Diafra Sakho is also available for selection, whilst James Collins got 45 minutes under his belt for Wales during the international break.

Both teams have been surprise packages this year sitting just five points off league leaders, Manchester City. Spurs will be hoping to continue their push for Champions League qualification with Pochettino's new look young side playing some very impressive football.

West Ham have also exceeded expectations this year with Slaven Bilic leading them to their best ever Premier League start. With Tottenham yet to lose at home and West Ham only losing once on the road, Sunday's clash between the two London teams shouldn't disappoint.
