Lead coach Mark Robson will be hoping to have a near full contingent of young Hammers for the final Premier League 2 match of 2022.
After Monday’s win, the lead coach may opt to stick with an unchanged starting XI against Spurs, although there will be hope that attacking duo Callum Marshall and Gideon Kodua have recovered from their respective knocks.
Tottenham Hotspur are winless so far in Premier League 2 Division 1.
A difficult campaign for the north London side sees them sat second-bottom in the league, with six points, all of which have been claimed in draws. It’s a marked slip for a side that claimed seventh in the league last season, picking up 37 points from ten wins and seven draws.
The form of Spaniard Yago Santiago has been a bright spark for Spurs, with the 19-year-old netting four times this campaign for Tottenham.
Nile John, Romaine Mundle, Malachi Fagan-Walcott, Harvey White and Jaden Williams have also scored this season.
Historically, there is plenty of inspiration for the young players coming through in north London. The likes of Sol Campbell, Peter Crouch, Ledley King, Jamie Redknapp and, most recently, England captain Harry Kane have earned their stripes with Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham Hotspur U21s are coached by Wayne Burnett, a former midfielder who began his playing career with Leyton Orient.
Spells with Blackburn Rovers, Plymouth Argyle, Bolton Wanderers and Grimsby Town followed for Burnett, who made his first step into coaching with Fisher Athletic. The 51-year-old would go on to manage the likes of Grays Athletic and Dagenham and Redbridge, before taking over with the Spurs development side in 2017.
