Pochettino Disappointed With 'Desperate' Spurs as Club Suffer Title Race Upset


Mauricio Pochettino's side suffered a 1-0 loss at the London Stadium on Friday night, reducing their chances of leapfrogging Chelsea at the top of the Premier League.

"I don't like to complain", said Pochettino. I don't know. For me we have to try to move on and finish in the best way the season and still fight.

So stylish in Sunday's win over north London rivals Arsenal, there was far less swagger about Pochettino's side as they struggled to turn their territorial dominance into a priceless goal.

"We managed to bring it back to four points but after today, it's almost impossible, but we will give it everything for the last three games", added the 23-year-old England worldwide. "But we will give everything for these last three games of the season, no matter what".

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. They have also played on extra match. They had nine wins in a row, you have to play really well. "It is true that it will be hard ... to catch Chelsea", manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

"There are three games left, one very important one next week for the club, for the fans, against a big opponent, a massive club".

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. We were missing a little bit.

So, here we sit, with Spurs needing a win at a place they lost last season. It wasn't the same performance we played last week and all the players are disappointed about that.

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. Spurs have been the only team to seriously challenge Antonio Conte's runaway leaders and if it wasn't for Tottenham's sparkling form the Premier League title would have been decided weeks ago, with the trophy already on its way to Stamford Bridge.
