Hugo Lloris 'gutted' at Tottenham's failure against West Ham United

But, when their nine-match winning run in the Premier League came to an end on Friday, with it effectively went their title hopes.

"It's almost impossible, " defender Eric Dier said of Tottenham's pursuit of a first title since 1961. "I said beforehand we needed to be 100% and that's what we got. We will try to move on and finish the season the best way and still fight".

Tottenham are nearly nailed-on to finish second in the table, which would be an improvement on a year ago, but Pochettino and his side will still feel as though they have fallen at the last once again.

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". We knew before that game and we've known for a few weeks now that we're not allowed to slip.

The Lilywhites will host Manchester United in their last game at White Hart Lane, before travelling to holding Champions Leicester City and then relegation threatened Hull City. It's not about playing well or running around more or less, it's about when you must win, you win.

They could still mathematically be dragged into the bottom three but, by drawing with West Brom to reach the magic 40-point mark, Sean Dyche's side all but ensured they will spend two consecutive seasons in the Premier League for the first time.

"There are three games left, one very important one next week for the club, for the fans, against a big opponent, a massive club. It is true that it will be difficult.to catch Chelsea", Pochettino told reporters.

Spurs managed just 11 attempts on goal during the London derby in Stratford, as Pochettino's side suffered only their fourth loss of the season.

West Ham kept Tottenham at arm's length once it went ahead and the final whistle sparked scenes of jubilation around the ground.

After a long sequence of impressive wins that showed the potential within the squad to progress and challenge the elite at the top of the table, coupled with last season's displays, Spurs have a great chance of lifting the premier league in the not too distant future.

There was no improvement in the second half and Ayew, left unmarked 18 yards out, should have made them pay as he blasted over.

"Slaven Bilic has my full backing". "With Mousa we lose and we win with different players".
