Tottenham’s title bid all but ended after a 1-0 defeat at West Ham kept the point between first and second at four points.
Chelsea play their game in hand against Middlesbrough at Stamford Bridge on Monday night and the leaders will go seven points clear with a victory.
Spurs looked off the pace at the Olympic Stadium with a number of players not performing to their usual standards.
Manuel Lanzini scored the only goal midway through the second half and Mauricio Pochettino’s side failed to find an equaliser.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the performance and result.
Been an incredible run, nine on the bounce, once again Spurs the only team to hang with runaway leaders. But not a good place for it to end.

After everything that's happened recently how can anyone question this team? We're fucking great and we're blessed to support them #COYS

The amazing run ends. We looked leggy tonight and off the pace. Still proud of this team what a great season still

Spurs so off-colour but West Ham's low block was impressively effective. We rarely turned them as they were so deep/organised.

Not good enough. We know how up for it they always are, no excuses! Title was gone before today but we've been uncharacteristically bad 👎🏼

27 points from the last 30. Only team to have put any pressure on CFC. Sorry it doesn't suit the narrative but Spurs have 'bottled' nothing.

Fair play, West Ham.
You are always going to have these days, especially after nine wins on the bounce. Tonight simply wasn't our night.

Title was probably out of reach before tonight but proud of this bunch of players. Disappointed but overall a wonderful season, #coys.

We were bound to have an off day eventually. Spectacular season, incredible football, best Spurs team of my lifetime.
