Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Tottenham v West Ham

Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Tottenham v West Ham

Tottenham's following Premier League match against Bournemouth - coming before the second leg against Ajax - was originally set for Monday 6 May but was moved forward by 48 hours after Spurs beat Manchester City to reach the semi-finals.

"The Premier League is completely different to the Dutch league". They might not have spent the day with their feet up - more likely they've been working on tactical plans on the training ground - but they will go into the two-legged tie considerably fresher than Spurs, who looked dreadfully tired throughout this disappointing 1-0 defeat.

West Ham started well in the second half as Arnautovic played in Fredericks but his shot was deflected over, while Anderson caused plenty of problems. But it's not a complaint. "If it was the opposite where we had one week to prepare for the semi-final and Ajax play Saturday, I would think the same, that it's not fair for them". Like it would be if it was the opposite.

'We can not say now that the players were thinking about Tuesday, ' he said.

The 23-year-old has scored six times in 30 appearances for the Villans this season but the club will struggle to hold onto him if they miss out on promotion. That is an advantage sometimes, yes.

The English Premier League (EPL) side plays a crucial derby game against West Ham United in London.

Despite his concerns, Pochettino affirmed that his side will not lose focus on the top-four race when they take on the Hammers. Arnautovic suddenly sprung into life, producing the game's most impressive moment when he controlled a high ball with the elegance of Dimitar Berbatov, before producing a long-range strike that was handled comfortably by Hugo Lloris who, tellingly, was Spurs' best performer here.

Vincent Janssen nearly rescued a point for Spurs with the final kick of the game, but Fabian Balbuena cleared off the line to secure a big derby win for West Ham.

"Maybe all these players that we're talking about today have the possibility to play before the end of the season and that is a massive motivation".

With directly referencing Ajax's period of rest, the implication was there when Pochettino added: "It's a bit unfair, the way we arrive in the competition".
