Spurs still fighting, says Pochettino after crushing West Ham loss

On this week's episode of the Mixer Irish Football podcast, we catch up with Cillian Sheridan, review all the latest fixtures and look ahead to this week's League of Ireland matches.

Lanzini's goal, his third in four appearances against Spurs, guaranteed West Ham's survival with two games to spare.

Last month, Lloris told ESPN FC that "a winning mentality is already in place" at Tottenham but immediately after the game he rejected suggestions that fatigue was to blame and said his teammates had not gone the extra mile. After taking seven points from three matches, Paul Clement's side will hope to carry on their good run, while Palace also remain in danger.

Meanwhile, league leaders Chelsea face a relatively easy assignment against relegation-prone Middlesbrough on Monday night, where a win would see them take a significant step towards securing Premier League honours. When my team is playing like this I'm happy.

"We deserved to win", said Bilic.

" You all know now it is more hard to catch Chelsea but we need to try always until the end". "I'm very proud. It's so hard sometimes to keep your level".

"I'm calm but disappointed of course because we missed a chance to close the gap on Chelsea", he said.

Spurs aren't mathematically dead yet, but their shock upset loss at West Ham United effectively sealed their fate.

Ducks overcome early deficit, stingy Predators goalie to tie series
Having mounted little attack to start the game, the Ducks looked to have taken a 1-0 lead with 8:18 elapsed in the second period. As the Predators realized, the Ducks had more than one agitator capable of knocking opponents off their game.

"Obviously they are our big rivals in the competition".

West Ham have endured a torrid season but it seems there is nothing like a home game against Tottenham to rouse them and their fans - just a year ago a 1-0 defeat at Upton Park put a major dent in Spurs' eventually unsuccessful title bid.

Alli had an early chance in the first half when Kane's shot came out to him in the area but his effort was blocked. "Beating them under the lights in front of 60,000, you can't beat that feeling". Tottenham is still set for a second consecutive season in the Champions League for the first time.

Last season, Spurs had travelled to Upton Park needing a victory to take them above Leicester in the final weeks of the season but found a Hammers team which raised their game for the occasion - and it was an nearly a carbon copy of those proceedings a year later.
