Should Ryan Mason have scored his chance when put clean through on goal for Tottenham against Chelsea?

Eden Hazard scored the goal which broke Tottenham hearts on Monday night, an equaliser which ensured their title challenge was over and Leicester City were champions.

Spurs had led 2-0 only for the game to end 2-2, ensuring Leicester cannot be caught at the top.

While they barely had an opportunity after Chelsea equaliser, a few minutes beforehand, Tottenham spurned an ideal chance to go 3-1 up.

It fell, unfortunately, not to top scorer Harry Kane, but to substitute Ryan Mason, who was put through by Kyle Walker, but he could only shoot straight at Asmir Begovic.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas said that the Tottenham midfielder needed to have delivered a better strike than he could muster.

He said: "Ryan Mason had to be do better. He just had to pick his spot but he stuck it down the middle with little power."

Jenas went on to add: "I'll be very surprised if there isn't another goal. It's in the balance."

Seven minutes later Eden Hazard scored the equaliser for Chelsea, and the rest they will say, is history.

Mason's miss was forgotten amid the lost tempers at the end, but it is likely to be playing on his mind all summer long.
