Chelsea’s advantage over Tottenham was reduced to just four points after our 2-0 loss to Manchester United on Sunday.
Many believe Chelsea is now under pressure to win the Premier League title but Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes the real pressure is on Tottenham because Chelsea can afford to drop points but Tottenham can’t.
Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website: “Everyone will look to Chelsea to see what the reaction is from the group. Shall they wilt or will that iron determination return in time? Can the lads handle the pressure in the run-in and will the back-up players perform now we might need them?
“All perfectly understandable questions but there is one not being asked as much. Can Spurs keep up their incredible run and what will happen if they have an off day over the next few weeks?
“Remember Chelsea can still afford to drop a few more points, Spurs cannot. Now that is real pressure and they have not really felt it yet, but they almost certainly will at some point between now and the end of the campaign.
“The pressure is on, but it is on everyone.”
