Their draw ensured Tottenham, who beat Newcastle, would finish in the top four, while Chelsea's lingering chances of joining the European elite effectively rest with them winning at St James' Park on Sunday and Liverpool losing at home to Brighton.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are still sitting three points ahead of Chelsea with a vastly superior goal difference, while Tottenham have a two-point cushion over the West London club.
