Both teams still have enough at stake to ensure this is unlikely to be a damp squib, and the rivalry between the two London clubs would have likely precluded that anyway.
West Ham are not yet mathematically safe, needing a point to all but guarantee their Premier League status with their superior goal difference over fellow strugglers Norwich City.
Given the Canaries are likely to drop points at Chelsea and Arsenal in their remaining two games, it is all but a formality. After a tough year, though, Hammers boss Sam Allardyce will be keen for his side to finish on their own terms.
For Spurs, a little revenge would not go amiss. West Ham comfortably beat them 3-0 in the league back in October and dumped them out of the Capital One Cup in Tim Sherwood's first game as manager.
For the task at hand this weekend, Sherwood is likely to stick with a starting line-up similar to the one he fielded throughout April.
