Chelsea can't shake Spurs - Matic ready to scrap for Premier League title

City relied on 20-year-old striker Gabriel Jesus to secure them a point in the final five minutes of their game against a Boro side scenting back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since May 2008.

Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, Carragher said: "I think it was a big win for Chelsea and they've nearly got one hand on the trophy". I'm not sure this will be the case with Tottenham. "It's true that it will be hard, but we will see what happens". Each time we win, they win.

Eyebrows were raised when Chelsea paid £30 million to bring Luiz back from Paris Saint-Germain in August, but the Brazil worldwide has emerged as a key figure at Stamford Bridge since Conte's decision to switch to a 3-4-3 formation following damaging defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal in September.

The vast majority of people had envisioned the Premier League title race as a foregone conclusion but Chelsea's recent stumble, losing two out of their last four league games has seen the gap between them and Spurs reduced to just four points. "The race for the title is down to four points and we will see what will happen".

And Saturday saw Sunderland's ten-year stay come to an end after a miserable season in the North East, yet there was mixed reactions from some Black Cats supporters on Twitter, with some fearing the second tier, while one fan reckons it could work out better in the long run for the club...

Spurs can close the gap to a slender point if they win at West Ham United.

Top four contenders City and United both dropped points to relegation-threatened sides on Sunday, results and displays which frustrated supporters of the Manchester duo... "We'll see after. We will have the chance to play before them and if we are capable to win against West Ham, which will be another tough derby game, then we'll see what happens with them against Middlesbrough".

Tottenham's title challenged had been written off weeks ago and perhaps that has reflected onto the players as they seem to be playing with a freedom and fluency of a team under no serious pressure.
