Chelsea lost to Crystal Palace on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, and it was a shocking result for the Blues, which cut our lead at the top of the table from 10 points to 7.

However, MOTD pundit Alan Shearer has backed Chelsea to still win the league despite the blip.

He told the BBC: “Despite Saturday’s defeat by Crystal Palace, I still think Chelsea will end up as champions. I don’t see any twists in the title race.

“Every top team has those days where, whatever you try, it doesn’t work and you come up against a brick wall. Palace’s defending was just brilliant and their whole team played to their maximum.

“That result meant City could have cut Chelsea’s lead at the top to nine points if they had beaten Arsenal on Sunday, and reduced it to six with a win at Stamford Bridge.”
