Kurt Zouma issues Harry Kane challenge ahead of West Ham versus Tottenham

West Ham take on Tottenham

West Ham host Tottenham this afternoon in a London derby as both look to turn their good starts into something better.



The Hammers currently sit in 7th place in the Premier League after 8 games, having won 4 of their opening encounters.

Tottenham are also desperate for a win, sitting 2 places, and one point, ahead of their opposition today going into the game.

Meanwhile, the neutral fan will be hoping for another blockbuster game after last season’s last-minute fireworks which saw West Ham rescue a point in the dying seconds of the game.

A win for either side will see them jump into the top 4, at least temporarily before Manchester United host Liverpool later in the afternoon.

Zouma issues Harry Kane challenge

Ahead of the game, Kurt Zouma has issued a challenge to Spurs striker Harry Kane. The Englishman has only scored once so far this season since his well-documented move to Manchester City fell through.

The 26 year old joined West Ham from Chelsea in a mega-money deal over the summer, and has started 4 of the Hammers’ Premier League games thus far.

Speaking in the London Evening Standard, the French centreback claimed that he has no fears about facing Harry Kane, irrespective of his form, suggesting that Michail Antonio is a tougher opponent.

Zouma claimed:

“I face Michail in training every day, so coming up against Kane doesn’t bother me at all” 

Will Zouma be able to back his claim up in the game, or will Harry Kane find some form against the Irons and lead Spurs to a much-needed victory.
