Harry Kane: Has a liking to playing against West Ham

Harry Kane will be hoping to continue his excellent run of form against West Ham when Tottenham travel to Upton Park for their Premier League clash on Wednesday evening.

Team news

Diafra Sakho could be added to the West Ham squad for the visit of derby rivals Tottenham.

The Senegalese striker has been out since November with a thigh injury but is back in training and his fitness will be assessed.

The Hammers are still without Winston Reid, Joey O’Brien (both hamstring), James Tomkins (calf) and Enner Valencia (ankle) while Sam Bryam is suspended.

Tottenham will make a late decision on Dele Alli’s fitness ahead of their derby date.

Alli will be assessed on Wednesday morning after he kicked the ground during the warm-up before Spurs’ win over Swansea on Sunday.

Tom Carroll is back after recovering from an Achilles injury but Mousa Dembele (groin), Clinton Njie (knee) and Jan Vertonghen (knee) are all out.
