Tottenham Hotspur are still fancied to record a top-four finish at 1/7 despite suffering a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to West Ham United on Saturday.
Spurs could have taken a huge step towards securing a top-four finish with victory at their new ground on Saturday but a frustrating performance in the final third led to a narrow defeat.
Michail Antonio scored the only goal in the 67th minute after he chested down Marko Arnautovic’s delivery before lashing a half-volley past the despairing dive of French shot-stopper Hugo Lloris.
West Ham’s victory means they are the first team to pick up a win at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium while they also managed to put a stop to a four-game winless run that had seen them slip out of the race for seventh.
Tottenham remain third but Chelsea, who travel to sixth-place Manchester United on Sunday, could move level on points if they beat the Red Devils while Arsenal could close to within a point if they get the better of Leicester City on the same day.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Mauricio Pochettino says his side lacked a cutting edge but he is looking to move on quickly with a big European tie next week.
“The second half was tougher because we didn’t put away the chances we created,” he said. “We made an unbelievable effort in the first half to try to score, but in the second half it was difficult because West Ham were difficult to break down.
“We conceded a lot of space and they forced us to run and make an unbelievable effort. In the end, we concede and it was tough, now we have to move on.”
Spurs return to action on Tuesday when they play host to Ajax in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final and the home side are 11/8 to pick up the win, while a draw is priced at 23/10 and the visitors are a 2/1 chance.
