Spurs v Irons: Streaming, travel, team news and all the rest

West Ham United embarked on their longest journey of the 2022/23 Premier League season to Newcastle United 15 days but travel just six miles to meet Spurs today. For the record the Emirates Stadium is marginally closer to London Stadium.

We will arrive for the sixth time since becoming the first visiting team to win there courtesy of Michail Antonio’s goal in April 2019 and the broadcast live will go out live in the on Sky Sports and BBC Radio 5 Live.

Fifteen days after West Ham United embarked on their longest journey of the 2022/23 Premier League season to Newcastle United, the Irons make their second shortest, just six miles as the crow flies, to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

For the record, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium is marginally closer to London Stadium.

The Hammers head to north London seeking to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to four matches, having followed a 2-0 home win over Everton with successive 1-1 draws at Newcastle and at home to Chelsea.

The Irons will visit Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the sixth time since becoming the first visiting team to win there courtesy of Michail Antonio’s historic goal in April 2019, for a fixture that will be broadcast live in the UK by Sky Sports and BBC Radio 5 Live.

Tottenham have lost four times on home turf in the Premier League season, to Newcastle United, Liverpool, Aston Villa and Arsenal. A fifth would give the Claret and Blue Army the local bragging rights again.

Antonio Conte’s side were beaten 4-1 at Leicester City in the Premier League last weekend and 1-0 at AC Milan in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie in Italy on Tuesday evening.

And the Italian will not be in the dugout this weekend as he continues to recuperate in his homeland following gallbladder surgery. Assistant Cristian Stellini will take the team on Sunday.

With an almost complete lack of parking and busy London streets surrounding Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it is strongly recommended that supporters take public transport, rather than driving to the game.

However there could be problems getting to Liverpool Street as Greater Anglia and Elizabeth line services between there and Shenfield are again not running due to engineering works. Replacement buses will get you from Ingatestone or Southend Victoria and Newbury Park, from where you can pick up your journey on the London Underground Central line.

The Jubilee line is also closed between Green Park and Stratford.

London Overground services will not run between Willesden Junction and Stratford. Replacement buses will operate.

However. the London Underground Victoria line to either Tottenham Hale or Seven Sisters provides a usual service although it will involve a 25 to 30-minute stroll north up Tottenham High Road. Tottenham Hale is also on the Greater Anglia network.

Seven Sisters is also on the London Overground, as is Bruce Grove, which lies midway between Seven Sisters and White Hart Lane, but is served by fewer trains.

Finally, a shuttle bus will run between Wood Green station on the London Underground Piccadilly line and the stadium, but no shuttle bus will be in operation to/from Alexandra Palace due to the limited Great Northern services running on Sunday.

The game will be broadcast live in the UK by Sky Sports on Sky Sports Premier League and Main Event.

On the team news front the Irons are likely to be without striker Gianluca Scamacca (knee), defenders Kurt Zouma (thigh) and Aaron Cresswell (illness).

Midfielder Paquetá (shoulder) and centre-back Nayef Aguerd (groin) were replaced during that game nut has an even money chance of making it today. Winger Maxwel Cornet (calf/virus) has been out of action since October.

Tottenham Hotspur will be without Uruguay midfielders Rodrigo Bentancur (ACL) and Yves Bissouma (ankle), goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (knee) and full-back Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring).
