Tottenham facing impossible EPL task now, says Dier

20 May 2017, 01:04 | Joan Schultz

Manuel Lanzini's second-half strike gave West Ham a memorable 1-0 victory over their London rivals in a match Spurs needed to win to keep the pressure on leaders Chelsea.

It is a painful prospect for a Tottenham side that had won their previous nine league games to spark dreams of a first title since 1961.

"It was already going to be hard and now it's even harder", Dier said. "That's all I can say really", he told Sky Sports. I don't know. For me we have to try to move on and finish in the best way the season and still fight.

And boss Pochettino conceded his side had let their opportunity slip as, for the second season running, they look set to come up short.

"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".

He now faces the hard task of raising his players for the next game, the little matter of the visit of Manchester United, and the last fixture to be hosted by White Hart Lane prior to its redevelopment. "Mousa can bring things to the team like another player but I don't think this was about playing one player and not another".

Last week, the new party announced "a list of 428 candidates for June's elections, half of whom were women", the broadcaster says. A former university history teacher, Le Drian has spent 35 years in politics and is president of the Brittany region.

"It was a very good win. We were a little bit unlucky (against West Ham) and we didn't deserve to lose". "Today was a key moment, we had to show that when you do not play well but when you must win, you win". We played well and these points were very important for us.

A third successive London derby was simply too much for Mauricio Pochettino's side as they saw their impressive run come to an end and their pursuit of Chelsea falter, just as they struggled to chase down Leicester City last season.

Alli has so often produced the match-winning moments in recent months but he simply was unable to find the answer here to West Ham's resilient defence.

"Slaven Bilic has my full backing".

Meanwhile for the Irons, it's the second season in a row they may have contributed to Tottenham falling at the last hurdle, and they couldn't be more delighted.
