It was one of the most memorable nights in the Premier League, as Chelsea were fighting for their pride and Leicester’s Title. “For them there was a lot at stake, for us there was prestige at stake,” said Hiddink after a 2-2 draw against Spurs.

The game was one of the most temper-driven games of the season. Tottenham went all out on Chelsea and it appeared as if they were giving Chelsea a beating for talking bad about them openly.

Tottenham took a lead of 2 goals, but failed to get the three points as Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard answered back to Kane and Son’s goal. Tottenham were aggressive throughout the 90 minutes, but their failure to control the aggression let Chelsea score past them twice.

For Chelsea, their 27-year unbeaten record at Stamford Bridge against Spurs remained intact. The draw is a satisfying result for Chelsea, as they saved their pride and on the other hand stopped Spurs from closing in on Leicester City.

However, the draw ended Pochettino’s dream of becoming Premier League Champion, as the gap stretched to 8 points with two games to play. Consequently, making Leicester City the Champions of England.
