Chelsea may have just been handed a glimmer of hope in the Premier League title race through a very unfortunate source.
It looked as though Manchester City were running away with the title. They are still very much firm favourites to lift the trophy come may, but they suffered what could prove to be a major setback during their clash with Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.
Not only were the champions-elect held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace, who missed a penalty in the 90th minute, but they also suffered two potentially serious injuries to key players of the squad.
The first player to have to leave the field injured was striker Gabriel Jesus. He fell to the floor and left the field in tears. Let’s hope that it was not as serious as it first appeared and he’s back on the field as soon as possible.
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus picked up an injury and left the pitch in tears.
It is not yet clear how long he could be out for, however there is a high possibility that the injury is serious – we hope it isn’t. pic.twitter.com/RKxyfKmpSE

The second potentially serious injury was inflicted onto former Blue Kevin De Bruyne, who could not leave the field on his own and had to be stretchered down the tunnel. As with Jesus, let’s hope it’s nothing too serious.

If the City duo are ruled out for a significant amount of time, and with their momentum taking a hit today, things could fast get interesting in the title race. We remain 14 points behind the league leaders, but it’s still all to play for.
