Mark Noble "speechless" after West Ham United's win over Tottenham Hotspur

West Ham's Manuel Lanzini is chased by teammates as he celebrates scoring the only goal of their match against

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.

But they were short of their best at the London Stadium and Manuel Lanzini's goal 20 minutes into the second period ensured Spurs would remain four points behind Chelsea, having played a game more. But, when their nine-match winning run in the Premier League came to an end on Friday, with it effectively went their title hopes.

Spurs are one game away from finishing the campaign with an unbeaten home record, and Lloris said: "My words didn't change even after this game - try to be focused on yourself, try to finish the job".

"It's disappointing really because we were on a fantastic run and we didn't think it was going to stop. We have to try to analyse and understand why it was hard for us to get the three points here today". "When we conceded it was so hard to come back in the game".

As it stands, Chelsea could wrap up the title with wins against Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion before Tottenham are next in action against Manchester United in their final home game at White Hart Lane on May 14.

Dele Alli's follow-up was blocked back to Kane on the edge of the area and the Tottenham striker looked certain to score, yet once again he was denied as Adrian's out-stretched leg deflected it over. There are games you must win, it's not about playing good or bad, or running more or less.

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

So, here we sit, with Spurs needing a win at a place they lost last season. "We were not capable of doing more", the goalkeeper said. "That wasn't a problem, the problem was that we didn't perform in the way we usually perform".

"Slaven Bilic has my full backing".

Mauricio Pochettino called on Tottenham to finish the season strongly despite seeing their title hopes all but disappear.
