Tottenham ready to give up on EPL title

24-year-old should be axed Three things we learned about Tottenham after loss v West Ham

Tottenham Hotspur's Premier League title hopes were left hanging by a thread as their nine-match winning run ended in a 1-0 defeat at West Ham United.

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.

"It was already going to be hard, so now it is going to be even harder", said Dier.

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

"We try to move on and finish the season in the best way, still fighting".

Eric Dier acknowledged Tottenham's hopes of Premier League glory are all but over after they went down 1-0 at West Ham. That has disappointed us a lot, but this is football and we need to understand this was a hard game, we tried but it was impossible.

Spurs final three games of the season are at home to Manchester United and away to Leicester and Hull and punters can still use their free bet to back the North London club to defy the odds and claim overall glory.


The Spurs players looked disconsolate as they trudged off the pitch, their heads bowed, while their West Ham counterparts - and the home fans - took great delight in harming their neighbours' title ambitions.

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

"We started the second half a little bit sloppy and we conceded a lot of space to them".

Midway through the second half, in what was West Ham's first attack, Lanzini scored after some scrappy, goalmouth pinball. "That wasn't a problem, the problem was that we didn't perform in the way we usually perform". If you want to be a champion, today was a game we must win.

It should also take the heat off of manager Slaven Bilic whose position has come under pressure this season despite steering West Ham to seventh past year. "We must wait but it is now more hard".

"More important for me is not the goal though, it's that the team played very well".

"Slaven Bilic has my full backing". But for the second year in a row, the team's title bid has faltered in the closing weeks of the season.
