Spurs will take title race down to the wire - Chelsea's Matic

Spurs will take title race down to the wire - Chelsea's Matic

In 2015, Chelsea were level with Manchester City after New Year's Day, whereas this year they had a 10-point lead over Tottenham at that time - before a 2-0 loss to Spurs on January 4 ended the Blues' 13-game league winning streak and renewed the race.

Conte told his post-match news conference on Sunday: "I didn't speak to the doctor about his injury but I don't think it's a serious injury".

Everton are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 58 points from 35 matches, eight points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, who have played a fewer game. I'm not sure this will be the case with Tottenham. "Everton was a different kind of game, we were 2-0 up but the front players are really risky for them so you have to come on and be ready, I felt it went well". We win and Tottenham win, they are always close. "Each time we win, they win, two years ago that was not the case".

The Toffees have little left to play for this term and are virtually assured of a seventh-placed finish; they are two points adrift of Arsenal in sixth who have two games in hand, but can not be caught by the teams below them. The Blues are four points ahead of the next challenger with four games left, three of them at home.

White House briefs Senate amid scary moment with North Korea
As well as his military show of force, Trump has sought to press China to do more to rein in its nuclear-armed neighbour. South Korea's envoy, Kim Hong-kyun, said they had also discussed how to get Russia's help to press North Korea.


The 58-time Belgium worldwide has also provided six assists in his 34 league appearances, and scored in his one FA Cup game this term too.

Sunday's win was Spurs' ninth in a row in the league and Pochettino hailed his players after watching them see off Arsenal with some ease.

Manager Antonio Conte knew it, and he didn't hold his pure joy in. "We have to be honest - if they drop points it will make it easier but it doesn't matter what they do we want to do our best until the end of the season to be champions and we are in a good way", he said. "I hope in the next game that David Luiz is available to play". They are a really good team. We have another big game against West Ham, another hard derby.

"We never look at Tottenham".
