Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester United are fighting for the final Champions League spot in the table.

As things stand after the clash at Stamford Bridge, Tottenham Hotspur hold their fourth spot, level on points with Arsenal in fifth position. However, the two north London clubs have a three-point lead over Manchester United, who are struggling in sixth.

Expressing his happiness for his former club, Martin Keown said that the win at Stamford Bridge changed everything for Mikel Arteta's side.

He said via HITC.com:

“It completely changes everything for Arsenal. Spurs will be looking at this, Conte might have spilled his wine tonight watching that result come through. You’ve got to keep reminding the people that you’re still there.”

The former club legend also appreciated Eddie Nketiah for his top performance in the clash against Chelsea on Thursday, saying that the teenager was sharp on the pitch. He told the Stadium Astros:

“I thought he was magnificent today. I know that the second one was perhaps given to him on a plate, the first one. You’ve got to be there to capitalise. He looked sharp, he dealt with the ball well. And those youngsters keep producing.”
