Spurs title ambitions were dealt a severe blow as they fell to a very damaging 1-0 loss away at West Ham United on Friday. Having being sole contenders to Chelsea’s dominance in the league all season long, Manuel Lanzini’s 65th-minute goal saw Tottenham Hotspur’s title challenge all but come to an end on Friday.
West Ham’s victory while securing their own safety gave league leaders Chelsea the chance to go seven points clear with three games remaining.
Speaking after the disastrous result, Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier outlined on the impossibility of chasing down Chelsea after the loss. Despite visibly melancholic after the loss, the England international also took the opportunity to take a sly dig at West Ham referring to the game as West Ham’s biggest match of the season.
With Spurs fans having little or no regard for the rivalry that West Ham fans so fiercely endorse, Dier further commented that he feels the same way as fans do with regard to the rivalry.
Check out the savage comments from Dier below:
🗣@ericdier: “It’s their biggest game of the season and we approached the game well but we weren’t decisive enough. We feel how the fans do.”
