Chelsea are just four points head of second-place Tottenham after losing 2-0 at Manchester United yesterday.
Spurs beat Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday, their eighth successive win in all competitions, with Blues boss Antonio Conte admitting they are the “best” team right now.
And Harry Kane, who recently returned from an ankle injury, believes if Spurs beat Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday (5.15pm) it could be pitoval for the title race.

It could be a big thing psychologically
Tottenham star Harry Kane on Chelsea
“It could be a big thing psychologically,” Kane said.
“It’s a different competition so it’s difficult to say. But it’s a big game for us, a big game for the club, a massive semi-final.
“You never know, if we can win, it might put a bit more doubt in their minds for the Premier League.”
Harry Kane has scored 20 Premier League goals for three seasons in a row
Kane scored his 20th league goal in the win over Bournemouth, making him the first Tottenham player since Jimmy Greaves to do so three years in a row.
“Jimmy Greaves was unbelievable,” the 23-year-old said.
“He’s a club legend who scored goals week in week out.”
