Sunday’s London derby has more meaning than usual.
In the English Premier League, Tottenham hosts West Ham United at White Hart Lane, and there is more at stake than personal pride. That’s because these two sides sit fifth and sixth on the league’s table, so a European qualification spot is on the line.
After a surging start to the season, West Ham is on a downward trajectory, securing only one point in its last two contests. Tottenham, meanwhile, has won three out of its previous four games and most recently claimed a crucial point on the road against Arsenal.
Stateside, the MLS Conference Finals begin, with the Columbus Crew hosting the New York Red Bulls and the Portland Timbers hosting FC Dallas in the first legs.
