West Ham have considerable form for raising their game against Spurs, and the Tottenham gaffer is starting the sabre rattling early in order to get his troops revved up for the big game.
Mauricio Pochettino said: “It is a derby. When you play a derby they try to give their best and try to win. It is our enemy, I understand very well that. For us we have to follow our way.
“We know very well what it means for our fans to play against West Ham. We will try to stay and be ready to compete, fight and be aggressive.”
One can bank on the Argentine fielding his very best XI on Saturday and the players rested against Barnsley in the Carabao Cup win on Tuesday night – such as Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane – will feature against the Hammers.
