Chelsea have seen Tottenham reduce the gap at the top of the table from ten points to four points in the past couple of weeks. With four games left to play, the league isn’t yet assured for Chelsea as Spurs are still chasing behind.

At this stage two seasons ago, Chelsea had almost wrapped up the league with eight points separating Chelsea and Manchester City.

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has admitted that he expects Tottenham to fight till the end.

“I think this year is more difficult,” said Matic, as quoted by the Mirror. “We finished 2015 eight points clear of Man City. I’m not sure this will be the case with Tottenham.

“I’m sure they will not give up until end of the season. At this moment it’s hard, but we will see. Each time we win, they win. Two years ago that was not the case.

“The important thing is that we are playing well, we take points and we will see if they can drop some points.”

With Tottenham still having West Ham, Manchester United Leicester City and Hull City to play, Matic still believes Tottenham could drop points.

“They have some difficult games, home and away, so everything is open until the end,” the Serbia international added.
