Cesc Fabregas has taken to social media to remind fans that it has been four years to the day since Chelsea ended Spurs’ title hopes and helped Leicester to win the Premier League.
Tottenham headed into the game at Stamford Bridge four years ago needing three points to keep their title hopes alive.
There was no love lost between the sides going into the game as multiple Chelsea players, including Fabregas, had come out beforehand and said they would do their best to ensure Spurs did not win the title.
The match saw plenty of bad challenges from both sets of players as well as a full-on brawl breaking out after full-time with Diego Costa and Michel Vorm in the thick of it.
The match, which later came to be dubbed as the ‘Battle of the Bridge’, saw Spurs race into a two-goal lead before half-time, only for the Blues to claw their way back to level things late on, thus handing Leicester the title.
Fabregas, who was in the thick of the action that evening, didn’t waste the opportunity to remind Spurs fans what happened on that fateful day.
For Leicester City

It is honestly embarrassing that Chelsea were so obsessed with stopping us winning the title in a season where they were languishing in midtable. Additionally, it was not the result at Stamford Bridge that cost us the title but the draw against West Brom a few days beforehand. Had we won that game, I believe we would have had a real shot at winning the title as it would have really dialled up the pressure on Leicester.
