Spurs chances of EPL title 'nearly impossible,' says Dier

Chelsea was handed a clearer path to the Premier League title on Friday after a disjointed Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-0 at West Ham to end a nine-match winning run.

Tottenham don't play again until they host Manchester United on May 14 and by then Chelsea, who travel to West Bromwich Albion two days earlier, may already be champions.

Chelsea's magic number to clinch a title is now six.

Chelsea need two wins from their final four games to be crowned champions. 'We have to wait but are thinking that it will be hard to catch Chelsea. We lose because we concede and it was hard to come back into the game.

Meanwhile, frustrated Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, said: "I'm calm".

"Today was a key moment and one of those moments where if you are going to win a title you have to win."

"We deserved it, we played so well".

"We're still fighting, we're disappointed with the result", the 45-year-old told Sky Sports after the game.

West Ham were in down Walker's flank again five minutes later and Victor Wanyama raced back to make an excellent clearing header as Sam Byram waited to convert.

Son Heung-Min went closest to breaking the deadlock for Tottenham in the second half but West Ham were always risky and Lanzini, wasteful with a first-half chance, delivered what could be knockout blow to Tottenham's title hopes.

Spurs battled to find a way back, but were given a fright when the home team almost doubled their lead on 75 minutes.

Who else? Lanzini missed one early chance and was clattered by Hugo Lloris before he could latch on to a second but the Argentinian's persistence paid off as he slotted home the victor with 25 minutes left.

After initially blocking a shot from Spurs striker Harry Kane, Adrian stuck out a foot second later to deny Kane a second time.

It wasn't a vintage display by Spurs by any means, but they still created more than West Ham and could have won it if not for the Hammers keeper Adrian making a couple of big saves. Spurs will be hoping their switch is more seamless, but there are no guarantees.

Subs not used: Vorm, N'Koudou, Sissoko, Wimmer.
