A win for Chelsea against Tottenham would have taken the Blues three points off Spurs, but Antonio Conte’s men lost their lead and ended up losing the game 3-1.
Chelsea are now eight points off Spurs with seven games left to play, but Conte believes there’s still hope for the team to make it into the top four.
The Chelsea boss said after the game: “I don’t know. On one hand, we must be realistic to understand the teams that stay ahead of us are going very fast, and today we had a great chance to reduce the gap with Tottenham, but we lost this chance.
“On the other hand, we have to try to do our best to do everything to try to take a place in the Champions League but it won’t be easy. We must know this.”
