Former Tottenham man congratulates West Ham, praises one Hammer

Former Tottenham man congratulates West Ham, praises one Hammer

Mauricio Pochettino admitted Tottenham blew their big chance to keep the title race alive after the 1-0 defeat at West Ham.

At the former London Olympic Stadium made famous by the likes of Mo Farah and Usain Bolt, a 10th successive league win for Tottenham would have put them one point behind Chelsea but they stumbled over one of their final hurdles.

If you want to be a champion, these are games you have to win. "I don't know. But you have to win".

"Now it's more hard to try to catch Chelsea but we need to try, always to the end".

'I feel calm. But I'm disappointed, of course, that we missed the opportunity to reduce the gap'.

But with West Ham content to defend deep, Spurs needed to find that last extra push - and it just wasn't coming.

One first-half save from Harry Kane was key as the Spanish stopper stuck out a boot and deflected the ball over the bar.

What that meeting did produce was an ill-fated reciprocal visit on May 10 by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Trump allies said the expected warm reception in Saudi Arabia and Israel could boost the spirits of the president.

"It wasn't our best day", added Pochettino.

"The performance was just ok". When you are fighting for the title, the goal we conceded, you need to stop before and not concede this type of goal. The title race is out of Spurs' hands for now, but football is a amusing old game, so let's wait and see what happens.

Pochettino continued to add that "seven points will be hard with three games to play, but in football you have to try your best, " before reinstating that "it is true it will be difficult".

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

Ayew lashed over from 18 yards seven minutes into the second half and Spurs appeared increasingly edgy as the hour approached - Eriksen's tame sidefoot at Adrian lacking conviction when promisingly placed. The victory hauled Slaven Bilic's team up six places to ninth in the standings after days of public debate about the manager's future. Speaking after the game, Bilic said: "We deserved to win, we did everything ok, we had a game plan and had a good pattern".

"The more points that they drop, the better for us and the closer to the title we are with less games".
