N'Koudou sends message to Chelsea after Tottenham win against Swansea
By Amir Mir
Georges-Kevin N’Koudou has warned Chelsea that the Premier League title race is “not over yet” after Tottenham beat Swansea 3-1 on Wednesday night.
The manner in which Spurs picked up the three points would have given them a big boost because they scored three goals in the final few minutes to secure a dramatic win.
Winger N’Koudou came on as a late substitute during that game as he saw all the action unfold in front of his eyes starting with Dele Alli’s equaliser in the 88th minute.
In-form attacker Son Heung-Min then scored the winner in stoppage time before playmaker Christian Eriksen topped things off just moments later.
However, Chelsea maintained their seven-point title lead with a 2-1 Premier League win over Manchester City, also on Wednesday night.

Following the eventful finish at the Liberty Stadium and the much-needed three points, N’Koudou had this strong message for his rivals.
“Passion,” N’Koudou wrote on his personal Twitter account. “It’s not over yet.”

Following his summer move from Ligue 1 outfit Marseille, N’Koudo has been a bit part player for the title chasers.
The Frenchman has played only 14 games in all competitions since his £9.9milliion move, supplying only one assist during that period.
He has started just two matches for Mauricio Pochettino and the highly-rated Argentine coach is yet to select him in the starting XI for a Premier League game.
With the 2016/17 English domestic season drawing to a close, it is highly likely that N’Koudou will not start a match again during the latter stages of this campaign.
