Tottenham Hotspur yesterday lost the chance to win the Premier League and handed it to Leicester City when they let a 2 goal lead slip to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard scored the equaliser that secured the title for Leicester and Tottenham have been under a lot of scrutiny with how they played the game, they are the first team in the history of the Premier League to receive 9 yellow cards in one game, which is an astounding feat.

Spurs‘ style of play was deemed to be more like a Sunday League side rather than a Premier League team challenging for the title. Players threw themselves into tackles which were seemingly just to hurt and frustrate the Chelsea players.

Just one example out of a possible many, a heated moment in the game saw Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele poke Diego Costa in the eye looking for a reaction from the Spanish international.

The game ended not with friendly hand shakes, but with a bust-up in the tunnel from all the players and even the clubs’ staff.

He said: “It’s always good to score in front of our fans. This game was very important for Chelsea. We deserved the draw.”

“I don’t care who is champions. Leicester deserve to be champions. It’s good for the Premier League.”

Harry Kane and Sin Heung-Min had fired Tottenham Hotspurs into a two goal lead, before Gary Cahill scored in the second half and the Belgium International levelled at 83′.

“Congratulations to Leicester because they have been superb this year.”

“It still hurts us tonight losing the league after winning it last year.

“We weren’t here to beat Tottenham and stop them doing it, it hurts us conceding it to Leicester but we will be back next year.

“It boiled over let’s not get silly and start banning people, it’s a London derby and the fans want to see it.

“(Ranieri) has been different class, to do what they have done has been unbelievable and given hope to the smaller sides.

“He’s a great manager and a great person. All season long they have kept churning out results.”
