West Ham Dash Spurs' Title Hopes

English Premier League 

Result: West Ham United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur 

Date: 05 May 2017

Venue: Olympic Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur missed the chance to close the gap on Chelsea, after they suffered a 1-0 loss to West Ham United on Friday evening.

There was a good tempo to the opening 15 minutes of the encounter with both sides playing an open brand of football.

Although the first clear-cut opening arrived after 21 minutes as West Ham goalkeeper, Adrian produced two big saves to deny Harry Kane and Dele Alli in quick succession.

Spurs shaded the possession statistics in the first half, while the Hammers were quite content to sit back and attack on the counter.

However, chances were few and far between as the half went on and the sides entered the break with the score goalless.

Spurs nearly went ahead after 62 minutes as Chirstian Eriksen played in Son Heung-min, whose low effort was superbly tipped away by Adrian.

However, West Ham broke the deadlock two minutes when Manuel Lanzini fired home from six-yards out, after a scramble in the box.

Hugo Lloris came to Spurs' rescue in the 77th minute, as the shot-stopper produced a stunning save to keep out Calleri's close range strike.

The visitors pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages, but the Hammers managed to withstand the pressure to see out the rest of the game.

The loss for Spurs means Chelsea only need six more points to be crowned Premier League champions.
