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

Tottenham failed to seize 'key moment' at West Ham, says Mauricio Pochettinoā€¯

Dele Alli endured a frustrating night at the London Stadium as Tottenham's title hopes blew up in smoke after a 1-0 defeat to West Ham.

Manuel Lanzini's second half strike ensured West Ham the points, and indeed their Premier League status, as well as nearly certainly putting pay to Tottenham's title hopes in the process.

The Blues first host Middlesbrough on Monday before travelling to West Brom next Friday, and could have the title sewn up before Spurs entertain Manchester United next Sunday.

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.

Bilic told Sport Klub that Matic said in a text message: 'If you stop Tottenham, I'll take you out to dinner'.

They were also asked if they would like to socialise with the person in the photo, the " Los Angeles Times " reported. In short, people can tell when you're exhausted and think you are less attractive when you haven't got enough sleep.

"For me, we must move on and finish in the best way this season, still fighting. Tottenham are one of the best teams in the Premier League and to win is very important for us and for us to keep going".

"It's very disappointing. We knew it was going to be tough a long time ago but we managed to bring it back to four points and after today it's almost impossible, but we'll give it everything for these three games now".

"We'll give everything for these last three games, no matter what".

Tottenham, for all their controlled passing, struggled to penetrate West Ham's rearguard.

Former Tottenham Hotspur player Garth Crooks has reiterated the importance of Tottenham keeping their squad together if they are to challenge for trophies.

"If you're not able to win and put pressure on them, then whatever happens is the worst".

There was no improvement in the second half and Ayew, left unmarked 18 yards out, should have made them pay as he blasted over. I thought we got what we deserved.

Manuel Lanzini's 65th-minute strike proved decisive as West Ham ensured they are now mathematically safe from relegation.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was left bitterly disappointed by both the performance and the implications of the defeat although he didn't go as far as Dier in surrendering. "I'm calm on the touchline, focused on the game to help the team".

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.
