Richard Keys brutally mocks Tottenham after their PL title hopes fade
By Amir Mir
Richard Keys has brutally mocked Tottenham after their Premier League title hopes faded following their defeat against West Ham on Friday.
The former Sky Sports presenter has seemingly suggested that Spurs have once again bottled it by stating they are “Tottenham after all”.
Going into the clash against the Hammers, Mauricio Pochettino’s team had won nine league games on the bounce and were in a fine run of form.
However, Manuel Lanzini’s strike separated both teams, which now gives leaders Chelsea the chance to clinch the title against West Brom next Friday.
This is what the outspoken presenter Keys had to say about Spurs, who will be hoping their title rivals drop valuable points on Monday night against Middlesbrough.

They're Tottenham after all – exactly as we know it. What a pity. It's gone now. Congrats Chelsea.

This time last season, Spurs finished in third place behind rivals Arsenal despite having hopes of catching eventual winners Leicester City for the title.
They lost a number of big matches towards the end of the campaign, including losing away at already relegated Newcastle on the final day of the season.
That allowed their north London neighbours, Arsenal to leapfrog them in the table, something they will not be able to do this term.
After beating Arsene Wenger’s side last Sunday at White Hart Lane, Spurs ensured that they will finish above the Gunners in the league for the first time in 22 years.
