"I think we've learnt a lot", said the Argentine, whose team closed to within four points of Chelsea ahead of the leaders' trip to Manchester United on Sunday. "Of course it's a different competition so it's hard to say, but if we win it might put a bit more doubt in their minds regarding the Premier League".

Their current run for the title - only four points separate them from Chelsea in first - represents some hope for glory, though remains a long shot.

The Wales worldwide has enjoyed an extended run in the Spurs side of late - starting the last 10 Premier League games in succession - winning 41% of tackles and creating a total of 11 chances.

Chelsea were dealt a huge blow on the day of their Old Trafford clash after Marcos Alonso was ruled out through illness.

The highly-rated England worldwide will be looking to be a thorn in Chelsea's side once again as he has the opportunity of reaching 20 goals for the campaign.

"But we have played against him this season and we have played Chelsea and we won".

But Tottenham have a momentum that Chelsea have lost having won their last 12 home games and their manager Mauricio Pochettino certainly isn't worrying about a lack of motivation and desire.

Some players learn from an experience like that but I thought that it was such a body blow for lads so young that they would not recover quickly enough to pick it up again this season.

I think this week is crucial for us. "If we play the way we played today then we can not be anxious ". We respect the way that we play, our philosophy. "C'mon, lets try to win the next game".

Then, finally, on Monday, May 1, it's Liverpool playing 10th-place Watford before action resumes the following weekend with just three games left in the season. The league is open and we have a 50 per cent probability to win the league.

Ander Herrera, who shadowed Hazard, set up Marcus Rashford for United's seventh-minute opener and netted the hosts' second goal with a deflected strike early in the second half.

"Next up for Chelsea is the FA Cup semi-final with Tottenham on Saturday evening".

But while Saturday is all about the cup - both teams will now believe they can achieve the double this season - the result will give the victors a huge psychological boost going into the title run-in.

They begged him to eat with them and then realized he was Jesus in the gracious manner in which he broke and shared the bread. Poof! The disciples freaked out (literally "startled and frightened") thinking they'd witnessed a ghostly apparition.

But they have the ability to cause any opponent problems and with tensions rising at Stamford Bridge, painful memories of last season's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Saints will be reawakened on a nervy night in West London.

"We'll bounce back. There is still lots to play for this season".

Though any reasonable person at the time thought the chances of Spurs catching Leicester City to win the title were microscopic, mathematically it was still possible when Pochettino brought his team across London.
