Mauricio Pochettino admits Tottenham wasted chance to keep pressure on Chelsea

Eric Dier is wary of another end-of-season capitulation after Tottenham's defeat to West Ham on Friday night all-but handed Chelsea the Premier League title.

Spurs' defeat to the Hammers at the London Stadium means Chelsea can secure the Premier League title if they win their next two games.

England worldwide Dier was understandably downbeat after the match, particularly as the defeat had come out of the blue, as Spurs went into the contest on the back of a nine-game winning run in the top-flight.

"It was already going to be hard, so now it is going to be even harder", said Dier. "I said beforehand we needed to be 100 per cent and that's what we got", skipper Mark Noble said.

"It's disappointing. We were on a fantastic run". However, Pochettino believed his side deserved more from the game, as they look to miss out on the Premier.

"Now it's better to forget it a little bit and see what happens, and try to analyse and understand why it was hard for us to get the three points here".

"We knew before this game and we've known for a few weeks now that we're not allowed to slip".

"The only way that they can do that is to keep every one of their players".

Collins snaps skid with 2 HRs, Tigers beat Orioles 5-4
But an improvement from an offense that ranked 20th in runs scored during April, given the Orioles' lineup, was inevitable. Hunter Renfroe hit his eighth home run of the season for San Diego. "You don't enjoy one like that unless you win it".

West Ham, meanwhile, have moved into the top half of the table and can pretty much put any relegation fears to rest at this point.

"More important for me is not the goal though, it's that the team played very well".

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

If you come second, then yes you've improved, but you need to show in a moment when you need to show", he told reporters after the match.

Pochettino sent on Mousa Dembele and Vincent Janssen in an attempt to rouse his side but they remained scrambled.

"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.

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.

"If we win the league it is because you learn, and if you finish second it is because you improve but I think it is a big topic in football".
