Arguably the most thrilling game of the season, what a game of football it was at Stamford Bridge as Eden Hazard came off the bench to inspire Chelsea to a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur and confirm Leicester City as the Premier League champions.
From one champion to another, Chelsea made sure Leicester City will be crowned champions of the 2015/16 Premier League season as they came from two goals down to draw Tottenham.
Right from the blast of the whistle, both teams showed signs they weren’t going to take things lightly, especially Tottenham, who had the most to play for, given they needed to win to keep the chase with Leicester for the race to the Premier League title.
And they did just that, attacking and tackling with equal aggression and it paid off soon enough as Harry Kane, kept onside by Cesar Azpilicueta, who had drifted off the Chelsea offside trap, connected with a defence splitting pass, went round Asmir Begovic to put Spurs ahead and in cruise control.
Son Heung-min then put Spurs two up just before the half-time break, and it seemed Leicester would have to wait another game before they can win their first ever Premier League title.
But it wasn’t to be, as Chelsea, buoyed by their fans who wanted them to end Spurs’ title aspirations, halved the deficit when Gary Cahill found himself free inside the box and lathed onto a corner.
Hazard, who had come on at half time for the ineffective Pedro, was to steal the show as his sublime finish ensured the Tottenham would fail to win the Premier League, leaving Leicester to emerge as the new champions, ironically, replacing Chelsea.
The game was however almost marred by reckless tackles from both sets of players and it was remarkable that both teams finished the game with 11 men.
