Tottenham head to Swansea on Wednesday with renewed belief that they can chase down Chelsea and win the title.

The Blues led the way by 10 points before defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday, but that loss allowed Spurs to cut the gap to seven points and injected a sense of competition back into the title race.

Mauricio Pochettino's men beat Burnley at Turf Moor as top-four rivals dropped points and they have now lost just once in the last 14 league games.

Despite a good start to life under Paul Clement, opponents Swansea have now won just once in the last five and couldn't find a way past relegation candidates Middlesbrough on Sunday.
