West Ham goalkeeper Adrian wants "revenge" when the Hammers host Tottenham on Friday because of the way Spurs snatched victory in the last London derby clash between the two clubs earlier this season.

West Ham were leading their Premier League game against Spurs at White Hart Lane 2-1 before two late strikes from Harry Kane sealed a last-gasp 3-2 victory for Mauricio Pochettino's men in mid-November.

The defeat was heavy for West Ham as they had only won three league games at the time, although they did go on to enjoy a mini-revival in form and results.

The Hammers have had an up-and-down time of things in the Premier League, but remain unbeaten since the 3-0 loss away to Arsenal on 5 April.

With 15th-placed West Ham now taking on a Tottenham team who have won nine straight league matches, Adrian admits he wants to exact revenge on Spurs at the London Stadium on Friday for the defeat in north London five months ago.

The goalkeeper sat out that match with Darren Randolph preferred in goal but, after winning back his place and keeping two clean sheets in the past two games, Adrian said: "We can have revenge.

"At Tottenham, we played very well but they had the luck to score at the end.

"That is past now. We are in the present, a different shape. We are a different West Ham."
