West Ham United

Hammers star looks ahead

24th April 2019, 11:00 by Nick Harris

West Ham star Robert Snodgrass is relishing the trip to face Tottenham in their new stadium at the weekend.

The Hammers have the opportunity to pull off a unique double on Saturday when they travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as they look to become the first team to pick up an away win at the new ground.

The Hammers were the first visiting side to win at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium and to do the north London double would be sweet for Hammers fans, but Snodgrass says he and the rest of the players will not need any extra incentive because playing Spurs is motivation enough.

"You want to be testing yourself against the very best and Spurs are in the semi-final of the Champions League, so it's one where the fans will want to obviously go and win, the players will want to go and win and, as a club, you want to go and win and end the season on a high," Snodgrass told the club's website.

"If we show the levels of performance we have in the last few weeks, we'll be right in the mix to get three points.

"It's doesn't motivate me any differently [that they're in the Champions League semi-finals]. It's Spurs and if you're not motivated for that, there's no point in turning up."

"There is so much at stake, with the rivalry between the two clubs, so I think that's the game you obviously want to win and get the bragging rights, finish the season on a high and get the three points."
