A deserved point away at Manchester City against the odds on Sunday was another vindication for Ange Postecoglou's front-foot approach for Spurs, and the Hammers will head across the capital wary of the threat they pose.
West Ham, though, are no pushovers and will approach this game - one of the biggest of their season - knowing Tottenham can be got at.
It is the second of three consecutive Premier League London derbies, following a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace and a clash with Fulham to come, and David Moyes will be telling his players the importance of bragging rights.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Tottenham vs West Ham is scheduled for an 8:15pm GMT kick-off tonight, Thursday December 7, 2023.
The match will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in north London.

Tottenham vs West Ham prediction
Tottenham may have picked up just one point from a possible four but that only tells half the story amid a crippling injury crisis and performances which warranted more returns.
But this is a West Ham team also made of stern stuff and were a Bowen header away at the weekend from three wins on the bounce.
Moyes will need his team firing on all cylinders - at both ends of the pitch - to get something out of this game, which should prove an entertaining derby.
Spurs to win, 3-2.
