Chelsea fans react on Twitter to Tottenham defeat against West Ham

By Dominic Toner

Tottenham saw their title hopes take a massive dent with a defeat to West Ham on Friday – and the Chelsea fans were quick to mock their rivals on Twitter.

Spurs suffered a narrow 1-0 away loss at the London Stadium in the Premier League, with Manuel Lanzini scoring the decisive goal for the hosts.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side missed out on the chance to move a point behind Chelsea in the title race and now look very unlikely to lift their first Premier League crown.

Meanwhile, the Blues are delighted with Spurs slip up and now need just two more victories from their remaining four fixtures to guarantee the title.

Chelsea fans have celebrated Spurs defeat on social media and believe that they are now in touching distance of the title.

Spurs have managed to set up a fascinating race for the title after winning their last nine consecutive games prior to Friday night.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have been the champions-elect for much of the season, but have been put under severe pressure.

Antonio Conte’s side now know that they need to win just two more games and they will be fully focused on their match against Middlesbrough on Monday.

They then travel to West Brom, before their final two home games against Watford and Sunderland.

Italian boss Conte still has the possibility of winning the double in his first season as they face Arsenal in the FA Cup final at the end of May.

In other Chelsea news, Paul Merson has predicted the Blues’ upcoming game against Boro.
