Tottenham's Harry Kane looks dejected after the English Premier League match between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur at the London Stadium on Friday.

Chelsea now need just six points from four remaining games to seal the title.

And as Lanzini smashed home the second-half victor, a roar went up like nothing heard at the former Olympic Stadium since Mo Farah came down the final straight in 2012.

"For me, we must move on and finish in the best way this season, still fighting".

"We have to analyse why it was hard to get the points here", Pochettino said.

However, Manchester City can still beat them to second place and Davies is wary of history repeating itself after losing to West Ham.

Spurs simply didn't show up at the London Stadium, as for the second season running Tottenham's EPL hopes went up in smoke against a London rival.

Pochettino admitted Spurs lacked the intensity they had shown in recent games, but rubbished suggestions that the pressure had got to his players.

Kyle Lowry added 18 points, Norman Powell and Jonas Valanciunas scored 12 points each while Serge Ibaka chipped in with 10 points. Why was the Toronto win in Game 2 fool's gold? Tony Snell scored a career-high 19 points to lead Milwaukee .

It is not the first time the Hammers have inflicted costly defeats on Spurs late in the season. We had the opportunity to reduce the gap but it was not our day.

"Our aim was to win every game until the end of the season, that's gone now and from Monday we'll be ready to go again", he told the club website.

Manuel Lanzini's scruffy 65th-minute goal sparked an East End party, and celebrations over in west London too, as West Ham guaranteed survival with only a second win in 12 games.

"The performance was just ok".

Now Tottenham is looking down again, holding an eight-point lead over Liverpool with three games to go. "Maybe we were a little desperate tonight after they scored".

This season "St Totteringham's Day" - as Gunners' fans refer to the day each season when Arsenal ensure the club will finish higher on the table than Spurs - can not happen, since Arsene Wenger's men are 17 points behind with only five games to play.

Here, we pick out five things we learned this weekend.

"We were the only team that pushed Leicester all the way last year and we've been the only ones pushing Chelsea this year".
