Cesc Fabregas and Antonio Conte may not have always seen eye-to-eye last season, but a significant Tottenham defeat was enough to bring the Chelsea duo together in a restaurant
After Chelsea were beaten twice in April, Spurs were given hope they could pip their London rivals to the Premier League title and had the chance to cut the deficit to just one point when they travelled to West Ham in May.
But Tottenham came unstuck at the Olympic Stadium as Manuel Lanzini struck the only goal of the game to leave Chelsea four points clear with a game in-hand.
The result meant the Blues need to win just two of their remaining four fixtures to clinch the title, which they of course managed without any slip ups.
And Fabregas and Conte have both how they ended up celebrating one of the most significant nights in their title victory together.
Fabregas was out of favour under Conte in the first half of the season but fought his way back into the team after New Year, and the pair certainly made amends in a London restaurant.

It’s fair to say things have changed a bit.
