Pochettino claims the Title is not yet Mathematically Impossible
Sports Gist: Mauricio Pochettino claims his side will keep fighting till the end
Sports Gist: Tottenham Hotspur capitulated to a resilliant London rival West Ham United.
Tottenham Hotspur suffered a 1:0 defeat against West Ham in Friday night.
This defeat is what is voiced to be the end of Spurs title hopes for the second consecutive time.
But Spurs Manager Mauricio Pochettino still hopes his side can do it.
“We are still fighting. It is disappointing with the result, now we wait for the Chelsea result then it’s three games ahead to play,” he told Sky Sports.
“You all know now it is more difficult to catch Chelsea but we need to try always until the end.”
“First half we dominated and created many chances to score,” he added. “A few clear chances. Second half we started a little bit sloppy and we conceded a little bit more space.
“When you are fighting for the title, the goal we conceded, you need to stop before and not concede this type of goal.
“Then it is so difficult. They played deeper with a 5-4-1 formation. It was difficult to find the space. We were a little bit unlucky, I don’t think we deserved to lose. But we lost and now we look forward.”
“It wasn’t the same performance we played last week. I think all the players are disappointed about that. There’s nothing to say.”
When asked if Spurs failed to cope with the pressure, Pochettino said: “In football a lot of topics make me laugh because we arrived at West Ham after [winning] nine games in a row.
“I have listened to that in many weeks. When you lose, OK maybe it’s because of the pressure. Maybe because the bad performance. Maybe because many topics you can add and justify why we lost.
“The reality is we didn’t score.”
