Tottenham Hotspur's EPL title hopes suffer Hammer blow

Posted May 20, 2017

England worldwide Dier was understandably downbeat after the match, particularly as the defeat had come out of the blue, as Spurs went into the contest on the back of a nine-game winning run in the top-flight.

Conte hadn't planned to watch Tottenham's fate, preferring to go out for dinner with his wife and daughter, but if he was checking for updates from Stratford his dessert would have tasted even sweeter.

Said Tottenham Manager Mauricio Pochettino after the loss to the Hammers. After taking seven points from three matches, Paul Clement's side will hope to carry on their good run, while Palace also remain in danger. But it's a great performance, especially when you do it in such an important game for them and for us.

The Lilywhites will host Manchester United in their last game at White Hart Lane, before travelling to holding Champions Leicester City and then relegation threatened Hull City.

They must hope those words do not come back to haunt them as moving stadiums will change Tottenham as a club just like it has their East End foes. Spurs have just come off a run of nine consecutive wins in one of the most competitive leagues in the world which is no mean feat.

Son Heung-Min went closest to breaking the deadlock for Tottenham in the second half but West Ham were always risky and Lanzini, wasteful with a first-half chance, delivered what could be knockout blow to Tottenham's title hopes.

However, Dr Sundelin also pointed out, "I don't want to worry people or make them lose sleep over these findings though". They were also asked if they would like to socialise with the person in the photo, the " Los Angeles Times " reported.

Eric Dier knows Tottenham must quickly put their title disappointment behind them to avoid a repeat of last season's capitulation.

After a troubled campaign, this was a rare uplifting moment for West Ham. Second half we started a little bit sloppy and we conceded a little bit more space.

Speaking to the BBC after Tottenham's lost, Pochettino commented that, "It's not over" before explaining that he and his team will "have to wait but are thinking that it will be hard to catch Chelsea".

"We deserved to win, we did everything", he said.

Whether that will be enough to spare boss Slaven Bilic from the sack remains to be seen amid reports his job could be in danger.

"It's the second season we are fighting for the Premier League".
