West Ham have made a poor start to their Premier League campaign, losing all but one of their opening four matches. They got their first victory at the weekend, a Pablo Fornals goal giving them the win over a struggling Aston Villa. This should give them some confidence ahead of the visit of Spurs.

Tottenham will arrive at the London Stadium unbeaten and have only dropped points in a draw with Chelsea. Antonio Conte’s side have got these results despite not quite hitting top form yet and they were wasteful in their win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday. Two more goals from Harry Kane gave them victory, despite the England captain missing a penalty.

The home side will be boosted by the arrival of Lucas Paqueta from Lyon in a club-record deal worth £51 million. The Brazilian midfielder has 33 caps for his country and could make his debut on Wednesday. He is the eighth player brought in by West Ham during this summer transfer window and is on the bench tonight.

New Spurs signings Ivan Perisic and Richarlison have impressed, though the latter remains among the substitutes. However, Yves Bissouma has been given a full debut as the fixture congestion grows. 

Here's how they line up:

West Ham: Fabianski, Coufal, Kehrer, Zouma, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Benrahma, Fornals, Bowen, Antonio.

Tottenham: Lloris, Royal, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Perisic, Hojbjerg, Bissouma, Kulusevski, Son, Kane.
