We tracked the state of the title race as Chelsea and Tottenham played their respective Premier League games

By Max McLean

Have we got a title race on our hands?

With Tottenham and Chelsea both playing on the same night – Spurs taking on Swansea and Chelsea hosting Manchester City – we took a look at the title race throughout the evening.

It’s fair to say the situation changed throughout the evening…

Oh this doesn’t look good

Swansea City 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Wayne Routledge 11′)

Off to a bad start, and Chelsea hadn’t even kicked off.

Folks, the race is over

Chelsea 1-0 Manchester City (Eden Hazard 10′)

But when they do get started, the Blues take an ‘as it stands’ 10-point lead over Spurs.

Ooh maybe not…

Chelsea 1-1 Manchester City (Sergio Aguero 26′)

Hello! City fancy a say in the title race by the look of it.

Yep, it’s over

Chelsea 2-1 Manchester City (Eden Hazard 35′)

Aaaaaaaaaaand it’s gone after Eden Hazard converts the rebound from his own missed penalty.


Swansea 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur (Dele Alli 88′)

But after a long period without a goal, this equaliser from Dele Alli piqued our interest.

Very interesting!

Swansea 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur (Son Heung-min 90+1′)

Wow! After what looks to be a late winner for Spurs at Swansea, an equaliser at Stamford Bridge would be huge.

Have Tottenham got it in them?

Swansea 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur (Christian Ericksen 90+4)

That’s the three points for Spurs – will they make up any ground on Chelsea?

Hmm – we’ll have to see

Full time at Stamford Bridge: Chelsea 2-1 Tottenham

Not this time – Antonio Conte’s men keep Mauricio Pochettino’s team seven points away… for now.
