It simply wasn’t meant to be. Tottenham let a 2-0 lead slip at Stamford Bridge, drawing 2-2 and handing the Premier League title to deserving champions Leicester City.
Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son had put Spurs 2-0 up before half time, but goals from Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard drew the hosts level, ending Tottenham’s hopes of a first league title since 1961.
Spurs can be proud they pushed Leicester most of the way. It was a shame to see a young team lose their heads at such a crucial stage of the season, but every Tottenham fan will be extremely proud of their team’s efforts this term.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the evening’s events.

Hopefully we end the season on a high, finish second and come back next year stronger, more mature and ready to fight for the title again!

Harry Kane: "When the ex-Champions are celebrating a 2-2 draw like they've won the league, you know we're doing something right."
