It’s Spurs and Snoddy knows what it means to the fans

Spurs on Saturday and this is a game where every player wants to be in the running for a place in the starting X1.

With a decentish record against them in recent years we will  be looking for one of those Tales of the Unexpected against the North Londoners.

It’s the one game of the season which gets us all totally desperate for a win and with Spuds this season in the Champions League semi final it would be all the sweeter.

Robert Snodgrass knows how much the game means to the fans and makes it clear that no further incentives are required.

It could be the start of a final run in which takes us over the 50 point barrier with games against Southampton and Watford to come.

With no Samir Nasri available and Jack Wilshere not up to match fitness Snoddy will have an important role to play in midfield.

And he told the official West Ham website:: “You want to be testing yourself against the very best and Spurs are in the semi-final of the Champions League so it’s one where the fans will want to obviously go and win, the players will want to go and win and, as a club, you want to go and win and end the season on a high.

“If we show the levels of performance we have in the last few weeks, we’ll be right in the mix to get three points.

“It’s doesn’t motivate me any differently [that they’re in the Champions League semi-finals]. It’s Spurs and if you’re not motivated for that, there’s no point in turning up.

“There is so much at stake, with the rivalry between the two clubs, so I think that’s the game you obviously want to win and get the bragging rights, finish the season on a high and get the three points.”

Saturday’s lunchtime London derby from Tottenham Hotspur will be screened live in the UK by Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main event, and by the league’s broadcast partners across the world, with kick-off at 12.30pm.

  1. Shame the hammers don’t turn up for the rest of the season.

  2. Spurs have had 6 games in April, three against City. We have had 3,so it will be really disappointing if we don’t give them a good run for their money. At least a draw ought to be possible, especially as they have several big names out.
