Pedro Obiang is working hard to make it into next week’s squad for the match at White Hart Lane.
The midfielder has suffered a quadriceps injury in training prior to the Hammers’ 2-0 Barclays Premier League at Watford but claims he is on the mend.
With Dimitri Payet and Enner Valencia injured against Everton, the 23-year-old is determined to boost boss Slaven Bilic’s options.
He told www.whufc.com: “I’m feeling better now and I’m training hard to hopefully join the rest of the guys, but these things happen.
I just want to get back as soon as I can to help the team. We’re focusing on the areas where I’m feeling a bit of discomfort so that next week I can start training again with the rest of the team.
I’m very much looking forward to the next match against Tottenham as I am with every game, as it represents a new opportunity to play.
“I really hope that I have recovered by then and I can be part of the squad, so that I can make the fans happier.”
