West Ham welcome fierce rivals Tottenham to London Stadium for their first derby of the Premier League season on Saturday.

And Slaven Bilic’s men will go into the lunchtime kick-off unbeaten in their last three matches, following a difficult start to the campaign.

The Hammers followed their home win over Huddersfield with a battling point at West Brom last weekend, then saw off Championship strugglers Bolton in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

And they will be looking to upset Spurs once again, after Manuel Lanzini’s goal derailed Tottenham’s title bid in May.

National League rivals Leyton Orient and Dagenham & Redbridge are on their travels this weekend, after mixed fortunes at home a week ago.

O’s visit new leaders Aldershot following a 2-1 loss to Hartlepool at Brisbane Road in front of the BT Sport cameras, which saw them drop to 13th place in the table, while Daggers set off for Solihull Moors after beating Halifax Town by a 3-1 margin at Victoria Road, climbing to third.

Our other non-league clubs, further down football’s pyramid, have been experiencing highs and lows of their own and Archant London’s Dave Evans, George Sessions and Jacob Ranson discuss all with Matt Withers in our latest podcast.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
