Tottenham Hotspur continue their chase for the league crown as they defeat Swansea by 3-1. All goals coming really really late.
Paul Clement’s Swansea took the lead through Routlidge in the 11th min. They were resilient and kept Tottenham from scoring a big part of the game. It could have been one of the club’s greatest night’s in the Premier League. And yet, it became a night that reminded of the harshness of this fight to stay in it. The brilliant save by Fabianski to deny Alli’s header from entering the back of the net made many feel that they might just make it.
However, it didn’t quite end that way. Dele Alli broke Swansea resistance and hearts with two minutes to go, and minutes later, Son and Eriksen completed the turn around.
The goals meant that Tottenham will continue to haunt Chelsea till the very end for the title race. Before the match, Chelsea’s boss Antonio Conte spoke out on Tottenham’s lack of winning mentality. On the field though, Tottenham have given a statement. Spurs players stepped up once again to get all 3 points for the side. And effectively, keep the title race alive, just when their backs were against the wall.
On the other side, Eden Hazard inspired Chelsea with a brace in their 2-1 win over Manchester City.
In the Premier League table, as it stands, Chelsea sit on the top with 7 points difference between them and second placed Tottenham. Do you think Tottenham will be able to catch Chelsea at the top of the table?
