For the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, winning against Man City this week was absolutely vital…
The Blues were 7 points ahead of Tottenham in the leadup to the game, but a loss would have certainly put the pressure on Antonio Conte and his players.
Indeed, that is exactly what Chelsea provided – putting in a stellar performance against Pep Guardiola’s Man City, with a double from Eden Hazard securing the points for the Blues.
Meanwhile, Tottenham looked likely to lose their game against Swansea City, before three quick goals in the closing moments saw the Lilywhites pick up all three points.
The result is likely to have a huge impact on the title race, with Chelsea now desperately needing to secure a few more wins to make their position at the top of the table more secure.
In response to Tottenham’s last minute win, the Chelsea fans in the pub are quite deflated – but those on Twitter are remaining defiant. In fact, many are using Tottenham’s result as a way of highlighting the significance of Chelsea’s win – with many confident that Conte will still get the job done…
