Manchester United and Chelsea lost more ground at the top of the Premier League table on Wednesday night as they both lost their games against Tottenham Hotspur and AFC Bournemouth respectively.
While Jose Mourinho’s team were thumped 2-0 by Spurs at the Wembley Stadium, it was worse for Chelsea who were stunned 0-3 by Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte’s lethargic team.
