Before our game against Manchester City on Wednesday, Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson warned that Chelsea could be four points ahead of Tottenham before our game against Bournemouth. True to his words, Spurs won their Saturday lunchtime kickoff to put pressure on Chelsea, as they hammered Watford 4-0.
But Chelsea weren’t ready to let the seven points gap slip away and within twenty minutes, the Blues were 2-0 up.
Chelsea fans in the away end knew that victory was sure for Chelsea and sang happily: ‘Tottenham Hotspur, we’re waiting for you’.
Chelsea won the game 3-1 courtesy of goals from Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso, with King scoring an own goal off a deflected Diego Costa shot.
