Video: West Ham v Spurs press conference



“Arthur Masuaku got a kick. Nothing is broken but it’s a bit swollen. He will train today and we will see how he is. “The same with Andy Carroll. He will train today and we will see if he is available. It is the same as before Stoke. Last season it was an electric atmosphere when we beat Spurs at home last year. It’s a massive London derby under the lights. It’s not the time to talk about my situation. It’s the time to talk about the Club. I’m very calm and focused on the game. Chelsea deserve to be on top, because they didn’t have a hole in their season, but Spurs are playing the best football.

“We have been without many players this season, particularly in the area where you need them to score goals. ”

On Spurs Slav said “I have nothing but praise for them. When I watch them I wonder how Chelsea made that gap, but they had two periods without Kane. Spurs are in form, but they’ve been in form for two months. We are positive, four unbeaten and three clean sheets in four games. Yes, they are electric, with confidence, pace, passing and changing positions and everything, but our form also improved. Spurs are very versatile. Sometimes you know where the ball is going but you can’t stop it because of the quality. On one hand, playing so many derbies is a disadvantage, but on the other your players are more up for the games than for others.”

On transfer speculation “It’s not the time to talk about transfers. We are talking about targets with the staff and the Board, but not in public.”
