The win over Wolves means Spurs have it in their own hands to finish sixth, though the club’s preparation for the final week of the season, and the return of fans for the first time since December, have been hit by reports that Kane has asked to leave the club.
West Ham, level on points with their rivals, are ready to pounce on any slip-ups from their London neighbours and have the kinder run-in on paper.

Tottenham vs Aston Villa team news
Ben Davies is not expected to return for Tottenham before the end of the season, though Serge Aurier could return after missing the win over Wolves through illness.
Harry Kane is in a tight race for the Golden Boot, though any speculation over his future is unlikely to unsettle him in any case. Lucas Moura, Tangy Ndombele and Davinson Sanchez are three players looking for minutes.
Jack Grealish at the weekend made his second substitute appearance for Aston Villa since his return from injury and could start in north London. Tyrone Mings is fit to return.
Morgan Sanson will be assessed ahead of the game, though Matty Cash is definitely out.
Tottenham vs Aston Villa prediction
These two teams only met in March due to a Covid rescheduling and Spurs left Birmingham as fairly comfortable winners.
Jack Grealish is back, and his impact on the team is immeasurable, but I expect another fairly routine win for a Spurs team who will not want speculation over Harry Kane’s future to impact their performances. 2-0 home win.
