How to watch West Ham vs

Pochettino hailed the club's performances despite a number of England internationals in his squad enduring a gruelling World Cup campaign in Russian Federation earlier this year where they helped the national team to reach the semi-finals.

Tottenham's Belgium worldwide Mousa Dembele has also started training after shaking off a thigh problem while England midfielder Dele Alli, who has been suffering with a hamstring problem, is expected to be back next week.

West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic has been declared fit despite still nursing an ongoing knee injury. Dele and Rose are close to returning, but Vertonghen will be out for at least six more weeks.

"The form of the players sometimes change, it is hard to explain", Pochettino told reporters in his post-match news conference. Now we have a chance to add more.

"It was fantastic to start this busy period with a victory and of course is a must-win game against PSV so we need to prepare for this game if we are going to be alive in the competition". "We hope to improve that this weekend".

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "We have one more point than last season and I am not happy about that because we are fifth in the table and the ambition is to be on the top".

"We have no regrets, we are happy". I think it's maybe a coincidence, or we worked a lot, or because we're clever, but to be honest always you try to sign. West Ham's revival was ended in their defeat by Brighton, but we know now what they are capable of and I think they are solid enough to hold Spurs.

"At the same time we are realistic and with all the circumstance we suffered in the summer, with the World Cup and the players that arrived the week before the start of the season, the challenge was bigger for everyone. But I need to remind everyone that this is our best start after eight games, it is the best start in the Premier League for Tottenham".

Tottenham head to West Ham in need of a win on Saturday.

There have been 28 goals in the past eight meetings - 3.5 goals per game on average.

Pochettino could be forgiven for feeling smug given Spurs are flying so high despite becoming the first side in Premier League history not to bring any new faces in during the summer transfer window. Sissoko has been a largely unpopular figure among Spurs' supporters since his £30 million arrival from Newcastle, but the away fans gave him a standing ovation and sang his name when he was substituted in the second half at the London Stadium.
