Chelsea’s lead at the top was cut to just seven points after our disappointing defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Pundit Graeme Souness believes Chelsea will be grateful for the defeat as it was a reminder Chelsea aren’t champions yet.
“When I think back to my playing days of challenging for the title – similar to Chelsea – and you come unstuck somewhere, you think ‘Maybe I needed that punch on the nose,” Souness told Sky Sports.
“It’s a reminder that they’re not over the line.
“Chelsea are a consistent team with a solid set up. They don’t need to be playing great football to win games.
“I fully expect Chelsea to win the league with games to spare.”
