Chelsea 2-2 Spurs - the key stats

Posted on 3 May 2016  - 11:00

The stats that mattered after the 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.



As it stands: As we all know, our 2-2 draw at Chelsea meant Leicester City clinched the Premier League title. We are now three points clear of Arsenal, with a superior goal difference, with two matches remaining. Manchester United can no longer catch us, so we have guaranteed a place in the top four. Manchester City can only go level on points with us if they win their remaining two matches - City and Arsenal meet at the Etihad on Sunday.

New record: We have still lost only four matches in the Premier League and with two matches left, that means we will set a new club record for fewest defeats in a top-flight season (old Division One and PL). The previous best was seven losses when we won titles in 1950-51 and 1960-61.
