Mark Noble "speechless" after West Ham United's win over Tottenham Hotspur

Mark Noble

Antonio Conte's pacesetters can now secure the crown by winning two of their final four games - and they face Middlesbrough and West Brom before Tottenham are next in action.

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham dominated possession for long periods but never reached the levels that had raised hopes of a first title since 1961.

West Ham's Manuel Lanzini, right, celebrates after scoring during the English Premier League soccer match between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur at the London Stadium in London, Friday, May 5, 2017.

It should also take the heat off of manager Slaven Bilic whose position has come under pressure this season despite steering West Ham to seventh past year.




In the second half, the hosts continued to frustrate their London rivals, only for them to take the lead on 65 minutes, with Lanzini pouncing on a loose ball after Spurs could not clear their area. But in football, the things don't happen naturally. "I said beforehand we needed to be 100 per cent and that's what we got", skipper Mark Noble said. When you are fighting for the title, the goal we conceded, you need to stop before and not concede this type of goal. Maybe because many topics you can add and justify why we lost.

"We don't have to forget what we've done until today", he said.

"You shouldn't forget the context". "We tried, it was hard". Losing to the Black Cats was something of a hammer blow to Hull, but it will look a lot less costly if Sunderland also beat Swansea next weekend. A pair of 0-0 draws against Everton and struggling Stoke earned two points, they failed to beat the bottom team, and pipped Swansea by a single goal.

Last month, Lloris told ESPN FC that "a winning mentality is already in place" at Tottenham but immediately after the game he rejected suggestions that fatigue was to blame and said his teammates had not gone the extra mile. "I'm calm on the touchline, focused on the game to help the team". I think we didn't deserve to lose. When you can not get first place, you need to make sure to secure second place, and it will already be a success for Tottenham. Now we must try to be ready for the next game.
