Eric Dier: Tottenham will start again on Monday

Eric Dier: Tottenham will start again on Monday

Spurs had the opportunity to move one point behind leaders Chelsea in the Premier League title race last night but an unusually flat performance resulted in a 1-0 defeat at the London Stadium.

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.

The Blues first host Middlesbrough on Monday before travelling to West Brom next Friday, and could have the title sewn up before Spurs entertain Manchester United next Sunday. "I'm very proud. It's so hard sometimes to keep your level".

"It's disappointing. We were on a fantastic run".

Dier added: "We brought it [the deficit to Chelsea] back to four points but after today it's almost impossible now".

"It was hard to move the ball quickly, we were slow and we didn't have the movement in front like the last games".

"It may sound unusual, but the game we lost 3-2 at White Hart Lane in early November, we wanted to repeat it because we were really good in that game".

But Pochettino knows they can have few complaints after a strangely lethargic display lacking both poise and passion.

"It was a very good win".

"Maybe we were a little desperate tonight after they scored".

But they lacked invention against a well-drilled West Ham side, who won against one of the top eight sides for the first time in 15 attempts this season.

"We try to move on and finish the season in the best way, still fighting, but now it's true, it's more hard".

What can you say about the West Ham goal except it was rather fortunate and very, very scrappy.

"We deserved it, we played so well".

"It's the biggest game we've played in the last two seasons since that Arsenal game in the Community Shield where we lost", he added.

West Ham has struggled with injuries all season long, and that's no different here, as Andy Carroll and Arthur Makuatsu are doubts, while Michail Antonio is out for sure.

"Slaven Bilic has my full backing".

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino: "We're still fighting".
