Only one of 160 teams in England’s top seven divisions still remain undefeated – Tottenham Hotspur.

However, that Spurs only sit in fifth tells you just how many games they have drawn.

It’s six out of 11 in the league for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, with their last four all finishing level.

Being involved in the title shake up last season lifted aspirations at White Hart Lane, and fans will be desperate for a win over West Ham on Saturday that will keep them in touch with this term’s contenders.

Hammers supporters will be similarly keen for a win over one of their fiercest rivals.

Slaven Bilic’s side have struggled all season, and are eleven places worse off than this stage last year, when they were level with Spurs.

They currently sit 17th.

Goals have been West Ham’s Achilles heel so far – they only have 11, with Michail Antonio getting five of those. No striker has scored in the league yet for the Hammers.

With Harry Kane featuring at home for the first time since September, I like the look of a Spurs win, which is 8/15 with Betway.

Kane missed 10 matches through injury but after scoring against Arsenal on his return (and two rest during the international break) he could prove the man to end the win drought.

Spurs managed just four goals from their last seven games, and I can’t see this being a thriller.

On a separate note, a new swipe-to-bet mobile app has been launched this week called Bookee.

Punters can accept or reject a selection of suggested bets in a Tinder-style, as well as building their own accas.

It’s definitely an interesting development in the world of betting.
