Premier League leaders Chelsea beat Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park.

The away fans sang: "Are you watching Tottenham", indicating that they still see them as a threat, but with four games left the title is Chelsea's to lose, as it has been for much of the season. "We've done what we needed to do".

"When they get a little more space they kill the game".

"I thought he controlled him, he was aggressive and we stopped one of the strengths of Chelsea".

The match was billed as Tottenham's last real hope of closing the gap to Chelsea, but Everton failed to do them any favours as the pacesetters moved seven points clear ahead of Spurs' meeting with Arsenal.

"The three points were very important for the team to continue to be at the top of the league", Pedro, who now has eight Premier League goals this season, told Chelsea TV.

Tottenham ensured a first league finish above Arsenal for 22 years by beating the Gunners, on goals by Dele Alli and Harry Kane.

"Every win is a great win for us".

Sigurdsson's 10th goal of the season, but first in 11 matches, cancelled out veteran Wayne Rooney's contentious penalty in time added on in the first half when Marcus Rashford made the most out of minimal contact with Swans goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. "That was the fighting spirit that we have shown over the past few weeks", he said. "If some people want to analyze the performance, do it in context".
