Spurs have made a strong start to the season and are undefeated in their last 10 competitive matches at home with their last home defeat coming against Fulham last March.

Norwich and Swansea have already lost at White Hart Lane Home while they drew with Chelsea last time out and will head into the game on the back of a 2-0 win over Anzhi Makhachkala in the Europa League midweek.

Despite their impressive start midfielder Lewis Holtby is taking a win for granted against their London rivals.

“West Ham aren’t conceding many goals, they look strong and dangerous on the counter,” Holtby told Tottenham’s official website.

“We have to be ready for it, another derby, the atmosphere will be fantastic and I hope for the fans we can get three points again.”

Villas-Boas made changes for the trip to Russia and watched as one of those that came in Jermain Defoe, score his seventh cup goal of the season. The former West Ham man has only scored once in the league in 2013 and is likely to be on the bench again with Spaniard Roberto Soldado set to return.

Spurs will be without defender Younes Kaboul, Danny Rose, Aaron Lennon, Etienne Capoue and Emmanuel Adebayor.

Meanwhile despite boasting on the league’s best defence’s West Ham find themselves sitting 17th in the table after recording just one win in their opening 6 games.

In the on-going absence of Andy Carroll the Hammers have struggled for goals and scored just four goals all season, the lowest in the league.

Sam Allardyce is set to receive a boost however with midfielder Joe Cole set to return following a hamstring injury while George McCartney could also feature after recovering from a knee injury.

Given his side’s poor start and the fact that they are without a win in their last 17 away games, Allardyce is keen to take the pressure off his side and place it firmly on Spurs.

“If you spend £100 million, as Spurs have, you’d expect Andre Villas-Boas to have to live with that pressure in getting that team to play to its capabilities as quickly as possible,” he said.

“It doesn’t always click immediately, but he must be delighted with how it’s going so far. They’ve moulded into a team quickly, which is a big bonus for him and Tottenham.”
