Tottenham have made just one change to the team that beat Arsenal at White Hart Lane last weekend for their tricky trip to West Ham United.

The visitors know victory at the Olympic Stadium will take them to within a point of Premier League leaders Chelsea, who host Middlesbrough on Monday night.

Significantly, Mauricio Pochettino has recalled Kyle Walker to the starting eleven despite reports the right-back is seeking a move away from north London this summer.

Walker has been heavily rotated with Kieran Trippier over the last few weeks — Trippier started against Arsenal, so it’s Walker that gets the nod this time.

Elsewhere, both Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama start. That means there’s no place in the line-up for Mousa Dembele.

The Belgian started on the bench against the Gunners, too. Dier partnered Wanyama last weekend, but also dropped into a back three when necessary.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Walker’s inclusion and the rest of the team news.
