Dele Alli endured a frustrating night at the London Stadium as Tottenham's title hopes blew up in smoke after a 1-0 defeat to West Ham. But, when their nine-match winning run in the Premier League came to an end on Friday, with it effectively went their title hopes.

Conte hadn't planned to watch Tottenham's fate, preferring to go out for dinner with his wife and daughter, but if he was checking for updates from Stratford his dessert would have tasted even sweeter. "I said beforehand we needed to be 100 per cent and that's what we got", skipper Mark Noble said.

The 23-year-old concedes his side's chances of claiming their first top-flight crown since 1961 are now virtually impossible, as Mauricio Pochettino's men only have three games left to play in the campaign. "We have to try to analyse and understand why it was hard for us to get the three points here today".

"It was hard to move the ball quickly, we were slow and we didn't have the movement in front like the last games".

Spurs can now only sit back and root for Middlesborough or West Brom to upset Chelsea as Tottenham will not play again until after Chelsea completes two more matches.

"But to beat a team like Spurs, you need more than that and we showed also quality, especially in the second half".

"Maybe we were a little desperate tonight after they scored". I think all the players are disappointed about that.

While the overwhelming feeling in the Tottenham camp last night was one of disappointment and frustration, Lloris feels it is important to consider the bigger picture.

What many Tottenham fans might not realize now is that the race might be mathematically over by the time their team kicks a ball again.

"Slaven Bilic has my full backing". Second-half goals from Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Otamendi completed the scoring as City leapfrogged Liverpool into third in the Premier League, on goal difference, and also moved four points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United.
