Premier League Preview: West Ham vs

Pochettino's side crashed to a shock 1-0 defeat at West Ham on Friday that left their title bid in tatters and put Chelsea within touching distance of being crowned champions.

Last month, Lloris told ESPN FC that "a winning mentality is already in place" at Tottenham but immediately after the game he rejected suggestions that fatigue was to blame and said his teammates had not gone the extra mile. "That's all I can say really", he said.

So stylish in Sunday's win over north London rivals Arsenal, there was far less swagger about Pochettino's side as they struggled to turn their territorial dominance into a priceless goal. 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. "When we conceded it was so hard to come back in the game".

Tottenham made the short trip to east London knowing they could heap pressure on Chelsea before their game against Middlesbrough on Monday.

West Ham kept Tottenham at arm's length once they went ahead and the final whistle sparked scenes of jubilation around the ground as the hosts moved up to ninth with 42 points.

West Ham secured their Premier League safety with the victory.

"They were very physical", Thomas told reporters. "They knew that we needed to come home and take care of business". Thomas added: "I mean they were just showing more people". "We had the momentum coming home to win our two games".

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 were missing a little bit.

Midway through the second half, in what was West Ham's first attack, Lanzini scored after some scrappy, goalmouth pinball.

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. This season was important for all to see that football is not about one man or one player, it's about being strong as a unit.

"The fans deserve a lot and we need to bounce back, keep pushing up and play with pride".

"Slaven Bilic has my full backing". But he insisted: "To finish second would be success for Tottenham, fighting for the title and close to the leaders for a second year in a row".
