Chelsea path to title eased by Tottenham losing at West Ham

The trophy can now be secured for the second time in three seasons by Chelsea over the next week - before Spurs play again - if Antonio Conte's side beats Middlesbrough on Monday and West Bromwich Albion on Friday. There are games you must win, it's not about playing good or bad, or running more or less. "We need to ask ourselves the right questions and try to understand what happened today".

But their manager rejected the notion that a team who had nine Premier League wins in succession to their name before facing West Ham had buckled under pressure.

"You need to show in the moments to win a league", he said. It was a great team display in terms of character, determination, thinking about what each individual had to do. Maybe we deserved to score another goal to be fair. Disappointed of course because we missed an opportunity to reduce the gap with Chelsea.

"I'm very gutted, in the way we played, especially".

Curry meanwhile had nothing but praise for Warriors youngster McCaw, who filled in for the injured Andre Iguodala with 18 points. After Golden States game one victory over the Spurs Sunday afternoon, forward Kawhi Leonard was scheduled for an MRI on Monday.

"I think you all know that now it is more hard to try to catch Chelsea".

However, Tottenham have a big day ahead next Sunday as they host Manchester United in the last-ever match at White Hart Lane. "Beating them under the lights in front of 60,000, you can't beat that feeling".

Pochettino added: "We dominated in the first half and were the better team, but at the start of the second half we were a bit sloppy and when you are fighting for the title you must not concede this type of goal".

Alli has so often produced the match-winning moments in recent months but he simply was unable to find the answer here to West Ham's resilient defence.

Can't vilify EVMs by hacking a look-alike machine — EC to AAP
Claiming that it was possible to hack the machines, Sisodia said EVM-tampering tantamounts to a "conspiracy to murder democracy". Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused the Election Commission of India of "backing off" on the hackathon.

The 29-year-old told the club's official website: "I'm speechless really".

West Ham: Adrian 7, Winston Reid 7, Aaron Cresswell 7, Cheikhou Kouyate 7, Manuel Lanzini 8, Mark Noble 6, James Collins 8, Andre Ayew 6, Sam Byram 7, Jose Fonte 7, Jonathan Calleri 6.

"It was a hard game and if you compare (it) with five days ago against Arsenal, I think it was a different game and it wasn't the same performance that we played last week".

Tottenham's despair was in stark contrast to West Ham who not only put a huge dent in their local rivals' hopes of a first title since 1961, but also guaranteed their own safety.
