Chelsea suffered a 2-0 loss against Manchester United on Sunday – and Tottenham fans on Twitter feel that the title race is alive following the result.
Antonio Conte’s side slipped to an away defeat at United, with Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera on the scoresheet at Old Trafford.
The result means that the Blues stay four points clear at the top of the Premier League and missed the opportunity to regain their seven-point lead over Spurs.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side managed to dispatch Bournemouth 4-0 in their weekend match and have increased their bid to win the league title.
Spurs fans were ecstatic after Chelsea’s slip-up and feel that their side still have the chance of winning their first ever Premier League title.

Chelsea have been dubbed the champions-elect for the majority of the season and have been the runway leaders for most of the campaign.
However, they have hit a dip recently and now suffered two defeats in their last four league games.
Spurs have quietly gone about their business and won their last seven consecutive top flight matches.
The north London club have recorded back-to-back 4-0 wins in the league and appear to have the momentum in the title race.
Pochettino’s side now have six games remaining to close the four-point deficit to Chelsea and the pair will meet next week in the FA Cup semi-finals.
In other Tottenham news, Paul Merson has taken a harsh swipe at attacking midfielder Dele Alli.
