Spurs striker Harry Kane keen to put Chelsea under extra pressure

Spurs are on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League for the second year in a row as they seek to compete with Europe's elite on a regular basis after years in the doldrums.

However, it won't be easy against Slaven Bilic's Hammers, as they are unbeaten in their last four league games since losing five on the spin during March and April.

With league leaders Chelsea only playing Middlesbrough on Monday, Mauricio Pochettino's side can close the gap to just one point, and pile the pressure on Antonio Conte's Blues.

"It was a hard game".

"It is a big game for us, a big game for the supporters, it is under the lights which is always a special one, and we are ready for it".

Tottenham have been forced to sell their star names in recent years and they still can not compete financially with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea.

"We were a little but unlucky, I don't think we deserved to lose but we lost". It wasn't the same performance we played last week and all the players are disappointed about that. Okay, now Danny Rose is injured, but even before that players such as Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier were getting a decent number of games, which shows you how demanding are those positions.

"Kyle is on the list for Friday's match and I can not confirm whether he is happy or not because these are just rumours", the Argentine said. Bilic has drawn some heart from Tottenham's recent away games, despite the fact they won them.

"We managed to bring it back to four points but after today, it's almost impossible, but we will give it everything for the last three games", added the 23-year-old England global.

"It's important that the fans know that the players are calm and we will see at the end of the season whether the rumours are true or not".

West Ham kept Tottenham at arm's length once they went ahead and the final whistle sparked scenes of jubilation around the ground as the hosts moved up to ninth with 42 points.

The Croat continued: "You have a game plan in every game".

"I have my wife and daughter and it is a chance to have a dinner together in London", the Italian said when asked if he'd watch Tottenham against West Ham.
