West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini wants his side to make history this weekend when they travel to Tottenham.

Spurs boast a perfect record at their new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, winning all four outings without conceding a single goal.

But with a Champions League semi-final, first-leg tie against Ajax to come on Tuesday, Spurs could be excused for a lack of focus, while Mauricio Pochettino may even be tempted to rest players.

Pellegrini, who could still guide his side to a seventh-place finish, wants West Ham to be the first side to beat Tottenham in their new surroundings.

‘Tottenham is a team that is doing a brilliant season.

Maybe playing so many games, it is not easy for them,’ Pellegrini said.

‘If we want to beat them we need to play a very good game.

It is a big game.

We have motivation also but after that we just have to play well, play as a big team.

‘We are not going to go to their stadium to draw 0-0, we are going to be the team we have been the whole season.

‘ The Hammers haven’t beaten Spurs in the Premier League since 2017 but punters using their free bet may want to back them to correct that record.
