Tottenham legend Ossie Ardiles believes that the race for the Premier League title is a two horse race following Chelsea’s loss against Manchester United.
Chelsea were outplayed by Jose Mourinho’s side on Sunday as goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera secured the victory at Old Trafford.
Antonio Conte’s side have seen their lead at the top of the table slip to just four points following the weekend’s fixtures and now have just six games remaining to hold off an in-form Spurs side.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team have won their last seven consecutive league games and showed their qualities in the 4-0 demolition of Bournemouth on Saturday.
Ardiles is excited following Chelsea’s weekend defeat and feels that Spurs will battle their London rivals for the title.
“PL a two horse race now,” Ardiles wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Spurs can only hope they win all of their remaining fixtures and watch Chelsea slip up in theirs.
Pochettino’s side still have Arsenal and Manchester United to play away this campaign, with trips to Crystal Palace, West Ham, Leicester and Hull.
Meanwhile, Chelsea final games appear to be slightly easier on paper, but their recent defeat to Palace shows that no game can be taken lightly.
The Blues must travel to Everton and West Brom, as well as hosting Southampton, Middlesbrough, Watford and Sunderland.
