Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Manchester United reduced our advantage over second-placed Tottenham to just four points but Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Chelsea are favourites to win the league because Chelsea have a better run-in compared to Tottenham plus a four-point advantage over Tottenham.
“The one thing that lets Tottenham down is the big games,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“The big moments to go and win a league or maybe an FA Cup.
“Can they go and beat Chelsea next week in a semi-final and get that real big moment?
“You would still have to fancy Chelsea with the run-in that they’ve got.
“Four points is still two games. Chelsea can still afford to drop points in a game and are still in front.
“If you can get it to three points or below – where every single game is going to make a difference – that’s when you can see real pressure get put on Chelsea.
“But let’s not forget last season when Tottenham were getting closer to Leicester and they dropped off. There will be more pressure on them, the closer they get to Chelsea also.”
