Tottenham vs West Ham H2H record

Tottenham and West Ham have been doing battle for London pride for 125 years now with the first Tottenham vs West Ham H2H coming way back in 1898. On that occasion, Tottenham ran out as 3-0 winners and the Lilywhites have continued to dominate the fixture ever since.

Recent Tottenham vs West Ham H2Hs have also favoured Spurs which will be music to the ears of Ange Postecoglou who is aiming to end a four-match winless run on Thursday. West Ham haven't won away at Tottenham since 2019 when Michail Antonio scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tottenham vs West Ham last five H2Hs

West Ham 1-0 Tottenham – 24th October 2021

West Ham's most recent victory against Tottenham came in October 2021 at the London Stadium. Spurs came into the game with Nuno Espirito Sano under severe pressure as manager after a string of bad results and his position wasn't strengthened by this side's performance at the London Stadium. West Ham won 1-0 courtesy of a goal from Michail Antonio but the end result could have been far worse.

Tottenham 2-1 West Ham– 22nd December 2021

Two months after playing each other in the league, Tottenham and West Ham met again – this time in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals. By this point, Antonio Conte had replaced Nuno Espirito Santo in the Spurs dugout and the Lilywhite were playing a lot better. On the night, all three goals were scored in the space of five minutes in the first half with Lucas Moura getting the winner. Spurs drew Chelsea in the semi-finals and lost over two legs.

Tottenham 3-1 West Ham– 20th March 2022

Tottenham vs West Ham played for the third time in the 21/22 season in March with both teams embroiled in a race for European football. Spurs were chasing the top four while West Ham were pushing for the top seven but it was the home side who came out on top thanks in large to a double from Son Heung-Min. In the end, both clubs met their targets with Spurs finishing 4th and West Ham 7th.

West Ham 1-1 Tottenham– 31st August 2022

West Ham and Tottenham didn't have to wait long for their first encounter in the 2022/23 season with the clubs facing off in August at the London Stadium. A Thilo Kehrer own goal gave the away side the lead in the first half before Tomas Soucek made it 1-1 in the second. Antonio Conte felt his team should have had a penalty late on but the spoils were ultimately shared.

Tottenham 2-0 West Ham– 19th February 2023

The most recent Tottenham vs West Ham H2H came in February 2023 with things unravelling for Antonio Conte as Tottenham boss. Things weren't going much better for David Moyes, either, with West Ham fully embroiled in a relegation battle. Spurs got the win on the night thanks to goals from Son and Emerson Royal but Conte was sacked just a month later. Meanwhile, West Ham would beat the drop and win the Europa Conference League.

Potential MVP – Son Heung-Min

Son Heung-Min has flourished as Tottenham's main man this season with the Korean being given the captain's armband after the sale of Harry Kane. Son is back playing his best football and has nine goals to his name in the Premier League already this season – one shy of his overall total last season.

With Spurs' stacked injury list, Son's role and form is more crucial than ever and he put his team on his back at the weekend to earn a draw away at Manchester City. We expect Son to shine once more on Thursday night against West Ham, a side he has scored eight goals against in the past.
