Not long ago, Chelsea were closing in on Liverpool at the top of the table, but the Blues have since experienced a slump that has temporarily killed any hopes of a title challenge.

Meanwhile, former Tottenham star Jermaine Jenas hasn’t ruled out Chelsea from the title race, as he pointed to Manchester United who were having a poor season a few weeks ago, but are now level on points with Liverpool.

“It’s there for a lot of teams, to be honest,” Jenas told BT Sport after Spurs 3-0 win over Leeds United.

“It was only a couple of weeks ago or a month ago that we were having a go at Manchester United and Ole’s job was on the line going into that game against Everton.

“He’s turned it around to the point where they’re joint-top of the Premier League.

“The situation here at Tottenham is the same. They’ve had a bit of a blip.

“Chelsea have had a bit of a blip and now the question marks will be with Frank – can they come out of it?

“This [Spurs] is a team that’s capable of doing it, it’s just about finding that rhythm and getting themselves over the line.

“I still think Liverpool and City are going to be the two teams that will go all the way but it will be nice to see if Tottenham can really push them and get that experience.”
