Tottenham failed to seize 'key moment' at West Ham, says Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham's Eric Dier virtually admitted the title race was over after their defeat at West Ham, but boss Mauricio Pochettino insisted they are "still fighting" in the battle to catch Chelsea.

Tottenham were beaten 1-0 by West Ham last Friday to keep Chelsea's four point lead at the top of the Premier League.

Spurs are one game away from finishing the campaign with an unbeaten home record, and Lloris said: "My words didn't change even after this game - try to be focused on yourself, try to finish the job".

LONDON - Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris has said that Friday's defeat at West Ham was the result of complacency and not being strong enough mentality, describing the performance at the London Stadium as "difficult to accept". However, Pochettino believed his side deserved more from the game, as they look to miss out on the Premier.

With only three games left to play for Spurs, the north London side may have to win all three remaining fixtures and hope Chelsea monumentally slip in their final four matches. We lose and now we move forward.

However, Tottenham have a big day ahead next Sunday as they host Manchester United in the last-ever match at White Hart Lane. When my team is playing like this I'm happy.

States can then use federal money to fund government-operated insurance programs for expensive patients called "high-risk pools". Members of Congress vote on a lot of inconsequential bills and bills that have a small impact on limited areas of American life.

"If you're not able to win and put pressure on them, then whatever happens is the worst. We were not capable of doing more", the goalkeeper said.

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.

"Maybe we were a little desperate tonight after they scored".

It is just that it does not feel like West Ham any more. Slaven Bilic will have Manuel Lanzini at his disposal, a big boost as eight of his 13 goals this Premier League season have come within the confines of the English capital.

What can you say about the West Ham goal except it was rather fortunate and very, very scrappy. "Today was a key moment, we had to show that when you do not play well but when you must win, you win".
