Amid shameful scenes of chaotic violence, Chelsea surrendered their realistic chance of the title, their 77-match unbeaten home League record under Jose Mourinho, and a painful slice of their self-respect.

The rest of them, after all, are 'much of a muchness', according to the Spurs boss. Eriksen's response on Saturday was emphatic.
