Tony Gale: This is why Tottenham lost to West Ham

At the former London Olympic Stadium made famous by the likes of Mo Farah and Usain Bolt, a 10th successive league win for Tottenham would have put them one point behind Chelsea but they stumbled over one of their final hurdles.

Pochettino admitted Spurs lacked the intensity they had shown in recent games, but rubbished suggestions that the pressure had got to his players.

"We didn't put in the right energy, especially because of the context - it's a derby and even more because it was a game which was very important in the title race".

The switch away from Upton Park to the colossal and less atmospheric London Stadium has contributed to West Ham's woes this year but the place was rocking on Friday - reviving memories of Britain's magical London 2012 Olympics feats. "The reality is we didn't score".

"Our aim was to win every game until the end of the season, that's gone now and from Monday we'll be ready to go again", he told the club website.

West Ham kept Tottenham at arm's length once it went ahead and the final whistle sparked scenes of jubilation around the ground.

"We shouldn't forget what we've done until now", he added. It was an opportunity they never had again, with the Foxes going on to be crowned champions.

"We should have increased our level, but we didn't do it".

"Don't forget the context".

West Ham, the first team to stop Tottenham scoring since Liverpool in early February, moved up to ninth with 42 points and is now mathematically safe from relegation. We knew before that game and we've known for a few weeks now that we're not allowed to slip.
