Mauricio Pochettino: Title very hard, but not out of reach

Mauricio Pochettino: Title very hard, but not out of reach

Tottenham Hotspur's exhilarating Premier League title surge came to a shuddering halt as they lost 1-0 at West Ham United on Friday to leave Chelsea needing six points from four games to be crowned champions.

It is a painful prospect for a Tottenham side that had won their previous nine league games to spark dreams of a first title since 1961.

Said Tottenham Manager Mauricio Pochettino after the loss to the Hammers.

"Nothing changes. We will try to finish strongly and after the way we finished last season, we want to put that right this season".

With only three games left to play for Spurs, the north London side may have to win all three remaining fixtures and hope Chelsea monumentally slip in their final four matches.

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

Tottenham made the short trip to east London knowing they could heap pressure on Chelsea before their game against Middlesbrough on Monday.

Spurs can now only sit back and root for Middlesborough or West Brom to upset Chelsea as Tottenham will not play again until after Chelsea completes two more matches.

Tottenham faltered in their quest to catch Chelsea as they suffered a surprise defeat to West Ham. "We have to wait but are thinking that it will be hard to catch Chelsea", said Pochettino. "I'm calm on the touchline, focused on the game to help the team".

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. We miss a little bit of fluidity to play in possession and move the ball quick and try to find the space and break them down.

After a troubled first year at their new stadium, this was a sweet moment for West Ham, who guaranteed their top-flight status for another year while delivering a potentially fatal blow to their hated rivals.

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. I think we didn't deserve to lose.
