Chelsea can still mathematically qualify for the Champions League this season.
While the odds are stacked against the Blues, they're still in with a shout as long as Tottenham continue to stutter.
Mauricio Pochettino's side have picked up just one point from their double game week, while Chelsea managed to collect six courtesy of victories over Southampton and Burnley.
The 3-2 win for the Saints was chaotic, while their 2-1 victory at Turf Moor was a lot more assured and composed.
Eden Hazard, Willian, Cesc Fabregas were all demoted to the bench, while Marcos Alonso - a constant presence in the last two seasons - served the first match of his three-game suspension.
The Spaniard's absence meant January signing Emerson Palmieri was handed his first Premier League start.
The exciting left-back arrived with a glowing reputation from Roma, with his stunning rise in Italian football only halted by a serious injury.
And Chelsea fans were very impressed with what they saw, with most stating that Brazilian-born Italian is already looking like a better option than Alonso.
His crossing, pace and defensive nous all exciting Blues fans. He also recorded the assist for Victor Moses' winning goal.
CHELSEA FANS REACT
Will Conte keep faith for the FA Cup semi-final v Southampton? You would think so, with Davide Zappacosta - a right-back by trade - the only other option.
Alonso's cowardly stamp on Shane Long may come back to haunt him, because if Emerson shines at Wembley and then again against Swansea next weekend, the Spanish international may find himself demoted to the bench.
The reaction from Chelsea fans during the Burnley makes Alonso's inclusion in the PFA Team of the Year look even more bizarre.
He may have scored six goals - the most of any defender in the Premier League - but his overall play as a defender has been questioned a lot.
Alonso can often be seen trying to get close to the striker rather than sticking to his position on the left.
Perhaps now, Conte can see how much more balanced his team is as a unit with Emerson.
