When Leicester City dropped points at home to West Brom last night, Tottenham and Arsenal were licking their lips. Typically, both north London sides lost their games in hand to West Ham and Swansea respectively.
Spurs never really got going at Upton Park, going down to an early Antonio header and failing to reply. To the relief of many, Arsenal lost 2-1 at home to Swansea. Leicester fans have had some night without even playing.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the night’s results.
We never got going, disappointing performance. The only plus point are the other results going our way. Need to up our game for Saturday.

Not going to hang around to read the moaners and groaners. West Ham deserved their win, but it's STILL on. Tin hats will be worn on Saturday

Wouldn't say we froze but none of our key players turned up tonight. Dier, Kane, Eriksen could all have done more. Full-backs bad.

Very poor today, and out of all the games to lose…they wanted it more (it is their cup final). No better time to bounce back than the NLD.

A bit of crumbling under pressure, a bit of fatigue, several poor performances, but mostly just out-tactic-ed. That was so disappointing.

Clutching at half full glasses, this always looked somewhat inevitable, and other results have meant it hasn't cost us *so* much on paper.

GUTTE but No panic, we are no worse off, with our goal difference 3 points is the same as two, need to start games on the front foot COYSSS

I'm not going to start crying and overreact as I'm sure many others will – definitely not making any excuses either. Still 10 games to go.

Its the hope that kills you. Poor tonight and some looked dead on feet but no disaster must win on Saturday we can still do it!

Poor performance all round. Eriksen was ok.
Froze in the first half, second half was better, but not great.
Kane looked tired.Lloris shaky

If you're gonna have a bad one (and yes nobody want's that) then fuck me tonight we've almost (almost) got away with one.

As if West Ham weren't going to be up for their last ever game against us at Upton. We don't have a divine right to success, we're Spurs.

The results tonight!!!! Seems to be some sort of conspiracy to get me in my undies. Bring it on!

Fucking hell… Reading some of you lots tweets you'd think we support Aston Villa ??

We go again. The league table still looks fantastic, and we go again. #COYS

Obviously it's shit losing to West Ham but at least they're good this season, fair play to them. Pressure still on Leicester still.

Never ever ever give up. The team won't. The manager won't.

Saving grace is Arsenal lost I guess, pretty much a quarter of a season left. Lots of points to play for
— Shaun (@ShaunBiggs1) March 2, 2016
There's still so much football left, lead is going to change hands more than once in the run in. Fixture list analysis is a myth. Buckle up.
— Raj Bains (@BainsXIII) March 2, 2016
If we win on Saturday and Leicester lose at Watford which isn't inconceivable we're top of the table with nine games left. Not a disaster.

Calmer than I've been all day. I refuse to be angry. I refuse to be that fickle. I refuse to be critical of this team. Onwards we go #coys

No we haven't 'bottled' anything. We are 2nd in the Premier league. Sometimes teams lose. Give me strength
