A gruelling run of fixtures for West Ham continues on Sunday with a mouthwatering London derby against Tottenham.

The Hammers have backed up their 2020/21 exploits with a solid start to the season, winning four of their eight Premier League games, every one of their Europa League group stage matches, as well as seeing off Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

There's perhaps no bigger game on the calendar for supporters, however, as West Ham welcoming Spurs to east London for a post-Sunday roast battle.

Here's how the hosts could line up...

West Ham predicted lineup vs Tottenham - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Lukasz Fabianski (GK) - It was bench duty for Fabianski in midweek, but he remains West Ham's number one.

Vladimir Coufal (RB) - Has been troubled by a groin problem of late, something Moyes will hope he overcomes to combat the dangerous Son Heung-min.

Kurt Zouma (CB) - Craig Dawson and Issa Diop have both made a case to start after impressing in midweek, but West Ham's major summer signing is a shoo-in starter.

Angelo Ogbonna (CB) - Man of the match against Everton last Sunday - scoring the winning goal - it's inconceivable for Ogbonna to not start.

Aaron Cresswell (LB) - Two quality set pieces on Thursday set West Ham on their way against Genk. More of the same here would be ideal.

2. Midfielders

Tomas Soucek (CM) - Took a nasty blow to the face against Everton and required plastic surgery, courtesy of Salomon Rondon's studs, but still started against Genk. Will do so again here because he might actually be Iron Man.

Declan Rice (CM) - West Ham's best player by a country mile, Rice is showing why every top team in the country is interested in signing him.

Pablo Fornals (CM) - Has grown in stature over the last 12 months, forcing his way into the Spain setup after delivering a number of high quality performances. Relentless runner who will set the tone.

3. Forwards

Jarrod Bowen (RW) - Another tremendously hard worker, Bowen has all the tools to trouble Tottenham's leaky defence.

Michail Antonio (ST) - With his hamstrings rested, Antonio will be fired up and raring to go against West Ham's biggest rivals.

Said Benrahma (LW) - The Algerian's confidence has skyrocketed this season and he'll be a real threat on the ball. Loves taking his man on and entertaining the crowd.
