“Leicester are still inconsistent, they have injury problems and have two extra points against Brighton. West Ham are a real interesting one. Can they continue this game?
“They have a good balance of offense and defense, they can defend very solidly, but they can also explode. [Jesse] Lingard went there and he did a great job, he gave them another dimension.
“[Said] Benrahma, they have some attacking players – if they stay [Michail] Antonio is a good fit, they can actually sneak in there.
“I think Tottenham might just be a little inconsistent. With so many clubs, I think this will be the most exciting part of the Premier League this year.”

Perhaps the fact that West Ham will not be playing European football in the final weeks of the season might help them.
They only have one game a week to prepare for.
This helps with freshness and tactical readiness, while Spurs are still in the Europa League.
Nor was anyone expecting West Ham to be in this position so they could play under less pressure than Spurs, whose top four was their minimum goal when they topped the league in November.
