Tottenham entered Monday's match at Chelsea not having won at Stamford Bridge since 1990, and after coming out on fire, Spurs let their slim title hopes slip away.

Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son scored in the final 10 minutes of the first half to give Tottenham a 2-0 lead in a must-win game in the Premier League title race only to have Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard erase that lead with goals in the second half of a 2-2 draw, crushing Tottenham's title hopes.

In a heated match in London, Tottenham did its part in the first half. First, Kane took an inch-perfect through ball from Erik Lamela, rounded goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and finished into an empty net for his league-leading 25th goal of the campaign:

Christian Eriksen then set up Son after a turnover in midfielder, with the South Korean finishing just minutes before the halftime whistle.

Tempers flared as well, with Mousa Dembele appearing to poke Diego Costa in the eye during a scuffle:

Gary Cahill sliced the deficit in half before the hour mark, scoring off a corner kick for the Blues to make it 2-1:

Eden Hazard scored the decisive goal in the 83rd minute with a stunning curler from inside the area:

Leicester, the 5,000-to-1 preseason favorite, is the Premier League champion.
