Spurs chances of EPL title 'nearly impossible,' says Dier

Spurs chances of EPL title 'nearly impossible,' says Dier

The result mirrors a 1-0 West Ham victory in March 2016 which at the time prevented Pochettino's side from catching last season's champions Leicester City, although the manager put this down to an unfortunate coincidence.

"Add to them if you must, but lose any of the current team and it will be a testimony to Tottenham's lack of ambition".

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

Spurs' defeat leaves their title hopes hanging by a thread.

Antonio Conte's pacesetters can now secure the crown by winning two of their final four games - and they face Middlesbrough and West Brom before Tottenham are next in action.

"To win a trophy you have to show in a key moment you can win".

It was only Tottenham's fourth loss in 35 games this campaign, but the other setbacks came against more illustrious opposition: Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.

"Now today it's all about us, we have to do our job".

"We deserved it, we played so well". Win those two games and it's bye bye Spurs.

Pochettino, who watched his side go down to a second-half goal from Adam Lanzini, told the club's website: "It was a game we must win to try to reduce the gap and we weren't capable of winning". We have to wait but are thinking that it will be hard to catch Chelsea.

"For me, we must move on and finish in the best way this season, still fighting". - West Ham have kept three consecutive Premier League clean sheets for the first time since December 2015.

Mauricio Pochettino's players were looking lethargic at the Olympic Stadium when Manuel Lanzini punished them in the 65th minute by pouncing after Aaron Cresswell's cross wasn't cleared.

The switch away from Upton Park to the colossal and less atmospheric London Stadium has contributed to West Ham's woes this year but the place was rocking on Friday - reviving memories of Britain's magical London 2012 Olympics feats.
