Angelo Ogbonna (centre back) West Ham United certainly aren’t leaving Upton Park quietly, having gone unbeaten in east London since August – and now they have the chance to derail Tottenham’s Premier League title bid.Spurs go into the game knowing a victory will take them top but the Hammers faithful will want their men to do anything in their power to put a stop to that.Slaven Bilic, though, faces a selection headache at the Boleyn Ground after Sam Byram was ruled out through suspension due to his 10th yellow card of the season.This means the Croatian is without a senior right back, while possible deputies James Tomkins, Winston Reid, Joey O’Brien are all absent through injuries. Enner Valencia also remains on the sidelines.So what will the West Ham XI look like against Tottenham? Click the right arrow above to see our prediction… 11 8.
