Tottenham's quest for European football continues on Tuesday when Jose Mourinho's men take on a West Ham side in the midst of a relegation battle.
Spurs returned to football after the three month break with a 1-1 draw against Manchester United, while West Ham fell to a 2-0 defeat to sixth-placed Wolves – neither especially helpful results.
David Moyes' side sit in 17th place, out of the relegation zone on goal difference alone, and will need to pick up points quickly if they want to secure their Premier League survival.
Where to Watch
Tottenham will have their full first team squad available for the game, with Dele Alli returning from suspension and no new injury worries.
Similarly, West Ham should have their entire first team available for Tuesday's game, with the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko and Jack Wilshere returning from injury over the break.
Tottenham: Lloris; Aurier, Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Sissoko, Winks, Bergwijn, Lamela, Son; Kane.
West Ham: Fabianski; Ngakia, Diop, Rice, Cresswell; Bowen, Noble, Soucek, Fornals, Anderson; Haller.
Head to Head Record
This fixture has been anyone's to take over recent years, with both sides enjoying a fair amount of success. Both teams have had the better of the other numerous times, with Tottenham winning seven of the last 15 and West Ham winning six.
The reverse fixture earlier this season saw Tottenham grab all three points with an exciting 3-2 victory.
In terms of recent form, only the last game will matter for both sides. After such a long hiatus, whatever form they had heading into the Premier League's suspension is pretty meaningless – which helps both sides, who found themselves in pretty torrid conditions before the break.
Here is how both sides have looked over their last five fixtures.
Tottenham 1-1 Manchester United (19/6)
RB Leipzig 3-0 Tottenham (10/3)
Burnley 1-1 Tottenham (7/3)
Tottenham 1-1 Norwich (4/3)
Tottenham 2-3 Wolves (1/3)
After a positive performance against Manchester United on Friday, expect Tottenham to turn it up a notch against a West Ham side struggling to pick up points. Mourinho's men should secure a comfortable win here and inch closer to a Europa League spot in doing so.
Prediction: Tottenham 3-1 West Ham
