EPL still wide open as West Ham upset Tottenham


West Ham now occupy sixth place, a Europa League spot, and will surely like to put some distance between those around them.

Bilic says it’s OK to dream of the Champions League “This season it’s not realistic but there’s nothing wrong with dreaming about it or trying to achieve it!”
Mauricio Pochettino’s team will welcome Arsenal to White Hart Lane on Saturday and Kane, who is now playing with a broken nose, is confident that there will be a response. That is special because our supporters love Tottenham and our players respect that, so we create a big link.
Time is running out for Tottenham Hotspur to dethrone first-place Leicester City in the Premier League. With that being said, here’s the lineup I think Pochettino will be going with.
Tottenham had recovered a league-leading 17 points from losing positions this season. After Leicester was held to a draw last night against West Brom, Tottenham has a window of opportunity that could change the remainder of the season.
The game’s only goal came just seven minutes in when after Antonio applied a powerful header to a perfectly delivered in-swinging corner from Dimitri Payet.
The 28-year-old Payet was in full flight, showing off his audacious skill by looking in one direction and passing in another, while he had another shot that was turned away for a corner before halftime. Spurs also went behind against Swansea and gave themselves a tough job to do.
TOTTENHAM’S packed fixture schedule as they fight for the title is set to be given a boost with the news that Mousa Dembele is back in training. The Spurs are thirsty for a win, but will their match with West Ham United leave a bad taste in the Spurs mouth?
Hitting the net was the problem.
After an hour Hammers keeper Adrian parried Alderweireld’s daisy cutter into the path of Harry Kane, but the striker was unable to stab home.
The France worldwide stopper did manage to keep out Mark Noble’s fierce long-range effort on 16 minutes, but West Ham kept the pressure on the visitors across the pitch and should have had a second before half-time.
It also started so well for Arsenal as they took the lead after 15 minutes against Swansea through Joel Campbell, but no one at the Emirates Stadium could quite believe they were level after 45 minutes then beaten at full-time. But in this erratic season, the destination of the trophy in 10 games time remains unpredictable.
