West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has hailed Tottenham as the most attractive team in the Premier League ahead of their clash on Saturday at the London Stadium.

West Ham striker Javier Hernandez admits that the London derby against Tottenham Hotspur will be special, but he has stressed that he plays with the same kind of passion and attitude in all games.

Another victory on Saturday would see them equal their club record of five consecutive Premier League away wins, while also lifting them into third place for a few hours at least.

Here are Slaven Bilic's pre-match column to the West Ham fans.

Tottenham travel to the London Stadium on Saturday to face West Ham, against whom Dier made his debut three years ago and scored the victor in a 1-0 victory.

West Ham United have defeated Tottenham Hotspur 14 times in the Premier League; their highest tally of wins against a single opponent in the competition.

This season's fixture comes much earlier in the campaign but Tottenham can hardly afford another slip-up given they already trail both Manchester United and Manchester City by five points.

The Premier also called for an expansion of the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP). All countries have the right to trade with each other, invest in other countries.

"We had a dinner in a restaurant in London with all the staff and players that I invite of course".

Carroll lost possession to allow Harry Kane to convert a swift counter-attack, and he made it two minutes later with another quick Spurs move.

Andy Carroll replaced the winger and had an immediate impact - but not in the manner he would have wanted. But ultimately Mauricio Pochettino's team held on.

What is more relevant is the fact that we have now kept three clean sheets in a row, because that is the starting point for what we hope to achieve. Indeed, given Tottenham's away form, it is likely West Ham will play conservatively, and look to make gains on the wings via counterattacks. I respect every single opinion.

Dembele aggravated a foot injury towards the end of last season which caused him to start just one of Tottenham's final five matches, before undergoing surgery at the beginning of summer that could make it hard for him to be at 100% again.

The warning signs, though, were there for West Ham in the 24th minute when Aurier was sent clear on the right by Moussa Sissoko.

A promising, energetic start was squandered as his team fell apart and the revival of that spirit came too late to stop Tottenham gaining a first win at the Hammers since Pochettino's first game in charge back in August 2015.
