Chelsea fans wasted no time in taunting Premier League title rivals Tottenham Hotspur following their 1-0 defeat to West Ham United at the London Stadium on Friday night, which all but ended their hopes of lifting the prestigious trophy.
The Blues were aware that Spurs would close their advantage at the summit to just a point if they picked up all three points against the Irons, but Manuel Lanzini’s second half goal for the hosts left Antonio Conte’s side in pole position to regain the title they last won in 2015.
The leaders now know that they if they beat Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge on Monday night and then West Bromwich Albion on Friday that they will be crowned as the champions before Mauricio Pochettino’s men even kick another ball.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on the latest twist in the title race via social media, and they taunted Tottenham in what looks set to be another trophy-less season.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
