Gary Lineker shares what Tottenham and Chelsea results mean for title race
By Harvey Byrne
Gary Lineker is still believing the title is already in Chelsea’s hands even after Tottenham closed the gap on the Blues on Saturday.
The north London club closed the gap on their rivals at the weekend as they ran out 2-0 victors over Burnley at Turf Moor with goals coming from Eric Dier and Son Heung-min,
Meanwhile, Antonio Conte’s men fell to a 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge against Crystal Palace with a goal from Cesc Fabregas cancelled out by first half goals from Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke.
The weekend results meant that the point difference was reduced to just seven points with nine matches of the season left and while many are keen to see the title race boil down to the wire, Lineker didn’t appear to want too get carried away with the points won and lost.
The former Spurs forward shared on his personal Twitter account during the two teams’ matches that it may now “get edgy” before instantly backtracking by saying “or maybe not”.

Spurs go 2 up at Burnley. Chelsea still trail at home to Palace. The gap could close to 7 points and things may just get edgy. Or maybe not.
