GUTTED: Blues boss Antanio Conte

Blues loss opens up door for Spurs to push until end.

Tottenham have given themselves a real chance of catching Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table.

After a poor finish to their campaign last season, which saw them end in third place after spending much of the run-in behind eventual winners

Leicester, they are well and truly in the title race this time around as the season enters the home straight.

Spurs have managed to cut down a 10-point gap since the start of April to only four points on Chelsea after beating Bournemouth 4-0 last weekend, while the Blues lost 2-0 to Manchester United on Sunday.

And Spurs hitman Harry Kane believes they can land a mental blow when the title chasers meet in Saturday’s Wembley FA Cup semifinal.l

With six games left to play in the league, Kane says: “It could be a big thing psychologically.

“Of course it’s a different competition so it’s hard to say, but it’s a big game for us… if we win it might put a bit more doubt in their minds regarding the

Premier League.”

He adds: “If you look at the table, 71 points with six games left is incredible. We’ve got to finish strongly – it isn’t over yet.”

Blues boss Antonio Conte says the race is wide open again, adding: “We have to think that there are six finals from now until the end.
