Chelsea 2 Tottenham 2 player ratings: Who let Spurs down in their failed title bid?

3 May

Tottenham conceded a two-goal lead in a bad-tempered 2-2 draw at Chelsea which meant Leicester won the title.

Spurs needed to end their 26-year wait for victory at Stamford Bridge to have any hope of overhauling the Foxes and were 2-0 ahead at half-time through goals from Harry Kane – his 25th in the league this season – and Son Heung-Min.

Gary Cahill pulled a goal back before substitute Eden Hazard belatedly rediscovered his blistering form of last season with the goal which denied Spurs and saw Leicester crowned champions.

Tottenham’s failure to see out victory can be attributed, at least in part, to their indiscipline in a niggly encounter which will see numerous incidents scrutinised by the Football Association. Nine Spurs players were booked, four after Hazard’s equaliser, and the players left the field squabbling.

So who impressed in the match at Stamford Bridge and who might have done better? We take a look at the individual performances…
