Off a nine match Premier League winning streak, Tottenham stayed four points behind PL leaders Chelsea with just four matches left. The stakes are high and Tottenham needed to remain perfect if they wanted to win their first league title since 1961.

That took a hit as West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini stunned Tottenham by scoring in the second half and pulling out a 1-0 lead.

Could that be the moment that gives Chelsea another Premier League title? Tottenham looked stunned and if Tottenham cannot come back and win, Chelsea will have a chance to extend their lead to six or seven points with Middlesbrough, West Brom, Watford and Sunderland left. Three home matches while two of them are against the last two teams in the Premier League. Chelsea is going to be waltzing to the title if Tottenham can’t win.

    Chelsea already suffered a late season upset as well — Crystal Palace on April 1. It’s difficult to win 10 games in a row. Tottenham lost the title much earlier, with draws against Bournemouth, West Brom, Everton, Leicester, Sunderland. That’s ten points left on the table. Second place is still great for Tottenham.
