A few days ago, many football fans considered Tottenham to be well and truly in a three-horse title race.
Harry Kane was set to return from his ankle injury with Mauricio Pochettino’s side coping perfectly well without him.
But with Kane in the starting XI, Spurs lost 2-1 to Burnley on Saturday.
Then, on Wednesday night, they were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Suddenly, they find themselves nine points off Liverpool at the top of the league and their faint title hopes in tatters.
In truth, it was an awful night for Pochetinno’s men.
Pedro gave the Blues the lead after 57 minutes but the second goal was just comical.
With just six minutes remaining, Kieran Trippier looked like he had a loose ball under control.
But he didn’t see Hugo Lloris rushing out of his goal and blindly tried to find him with a pass.
But it went past the French goalkeeper and rolled into the net, handing Chelsea the three points.
If that wasn’t funny enough, someone has now put Trippier’s own goal alongside commentary of his World Cup semi-final free-kick against Croatia.
Back in the summer, the Spurs full-back gave England an early lead in their semi-final clash with a delightful free-kick.
And, just by chance, the commentary of that goal works absolutely perfectly with his own-goal.
From the highlight of his career to one of the worst moment of his career.
Poor old Trippier.
Spurs will now have to pick themselves up for a massive north London derby on Saturday as they look to prevent their third consecutive defeat.News Now - Sport News
