Manchester City has seen their first place gap reduced to 6 points with second placed Liverpool having one game outstanding
Pep Guardiola and his men were served a hot disappointment when they met with Conte’s side with the North London side holding the upper hand.
Despite attempts to keep the fight open, City failed to materialize at least a draw with Tottenham claiming a late minute victory following a sensational strike from Harry Kane.
This alone sees the Premier League tittle race reignited and the Cityzens manager has just a clear message for his close competitors; Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp.
Although having slumped lately with injury hits, Chelsea still managed to produce a late minute stunner with a good strike from Hakim Ziyech who had his first goal ruled offside.

Liverpool on their own end aren’t looking to slow down anytime soon with the side eager to close the gaps between them and City.
“We have to fight for every game and every game we are going to win we will be closer,” Pep Guardiola told reporters on the title challenge.
“I said weeks ago we have to make a lot of points to be champions and this is what we will try to do.
“I think we performed well – honestly. I never said the title race was over. It’s normal. In January and February the teams at the bottom won their games because everyone fights for everything. It will be difficult. We know it.
“But it’s happened. We lost a game. We will recover with training sessions and prepare for the next game.”
“They defended in the 18-yard box and it was so difficult.
“They allowed us to go outside and closed all the channels inside, and then after that they could run with their quality but they didn’t run much.
“It was difficult. Every time we played inside we had to then move outside and we arrived there and crossed. But for many reasons we were not there to score.
“The first goal came from the quality they have and the second is difficult to defend and the third was our mistake.
“We were close to drawing, and maybe winning, but congratulations to Spurs.”
