Best Twitter reaction as West Ham crash Tottenham's title hopes

Tottenham were beaten 1-0 by West Ham last Friday to keep Chelsea's four point lead at the top of the Premier League.

"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".

It was a draw with Chelsea last season which confirmed Leicester City as champions before they lost their final two games of the season to allow Arsenal to overtake them on the final day of the season.

"We started the second half a little bit sloppy and we conceded a lot of space to them".

On a rare foray forward West Ham's Aaron Cresswell crossed from the right and with Tottenham's defence dithering, the ball squirmed to Lanzini who smashed past Hugo Lloris. Maybe when you lose it is because of the pressure or a bad performance. "We had a game-plan, To beat a team like Spurs you also need quality and we showed that", Bilic said.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at how West Ham have become Tottenham's nemesis in recent years.

Oil spikes as USA inventories tumble by more than expected
But after Brent prices fell back below $50 per barrel last week, analysts said producers felt forced to act. Saudi Aramco will reduce oil supplies to Asian customers by about 7 million barrels in June.

What has proved costly for Tottenham are the dropped points in the opening months of the season.

"I'm not really pleased with the way we played this game", Lloris said before leaving the Olympic Stadium.

Eriksen lashed over but Tottenham were running on empty, with West Ham substitute Ashley Fletcher going agonisingly close to number two just before a final whistle that will have prompted significant celebrations in west London.

Meanwhile for the Irons, it's the second season in a row they may have contributed to Tottenham falling at the last hurdle, and they couldn't be more delighted.

As the first-half came to an end there was no doubt that Spurs' fans gesture was the talking point of the game. - West Ham have kept three consecutive Premier League clean sheets for the first time since December 2015.

Pochettino's side crashed to a shock 1-0 defeat at West Ham on Friday that left their title bid in tatters and put Chelsea within touching distance of being crowned champions.
