West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini struck to leave Tottenham’s Premier League title hopes in tatters and Chelsea with one hand on the trophy.
Chelsea’s grip on the Premier League title strengthened after West Ham battled to a shock 1-0 win over second-placed Tottenham.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side headed into the match on a superb run of nine consecutive victories that had prevented Chelsea from turning their bid for glory into a procession.
But they were short of their best at the London Stadium and Manuel Lanzini’s goal 20 minutes into the second period ensured Spurs would remain four points behind Chelsea, having played a game more.
Victory over lowly Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge on Monday would put Antonio Conte’s men seven points clear with three games remaining and Chelsea’s seemingly favourable run-in comprises matches with West Brom, Watford and Sunderland.
Lanzini further enhanced his reputation as a London derby specialist, the Argentinian’s strike standing as his ninth in 14 all-capital encounters, and Slaven Bilic’s team are up to ninth in the table on 42 points – extinguishing their faintly lingering relegation fears.
