Tony Gale: This is why Tottenham lost to West Ham

20 May 2017, 12:43 | Pamela Mathis

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".

Chelsea need six points from four games to guarantee top spot and they would reach that target with wins against Middlesbrough tomorrow and West Bromwich Albion on Friday.

Following the surprise defeat away to West Ham at the London Stadium, which effectively ended Tottenham's slim chances of challenging Chelsea for the title, fans and pundits alike will be wondering if they will ever have the belief or star quality needed to finish the season in first place.

Spurs are second in the standings with 77 points from 35 matches, four behind Chelsea, who have a game in hand.

England global Dier was understandably downbeat after the match, particularly as the defeat had come out of the blue, as Spurs went into the contest on the back of a nine-game winning run in the top-flight. But Pochettino knows they can have few complaints after a strangely lethargic display lacking both poise and passion. "Perhaps the nervousness of the title race finally caught up with them". You need to show that you can show up in the moment to win a league, to win a trophy. It's not about playing well or running around more or less, it's about when you must win, you win. Today was a key moment. "There are many reasons that it wasn't our best day". "We have to wait but are thinking that it will be hard to catch Chelsea", said Pochettino.

Tottenham suffered a damaging defeat at West Ham on Monday. 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.

"We were not capable of doing more and the worst thing was the feeling at 0-0".

"Today is that game that winning would mean a lot to the team and the club, so hopefully we can do that".

"The circumstances were completely different [from last season]".
