Sports Mole looks ahead to Monday's London derby between West Ham and Spurs.

Ailing West Ham United meet a buoyant Tottenham Hotspur side in Monday's London derby in the Premier League.

The Hammers have won just one of their last 11 matches in all competitions but still sit relatively safely in mid-table.

Spurs, meanwhile, are just a point behind Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot and have real ambitions of a top-four finish.

Ahead of Monday's match, West Ham chairman David Gold has pleaded with fans to not chant in an anti-semitic manner like they did at the reverse fixture in November that Spurs won 3-1.

The home side could welcome back James Collins from injury while Guy Demel and Joey O'Brien will contest for the right-back berth.

Andre Villas-Boas is likely to be without Jermain Defoe once more and could start Clint Dempsey on his own up front after resting him for the midweek Europa League tie in Lyon.
