As the West London derby between Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea finished with the Blues coming out on top, Twitter has reacted to the result which has had an impact at both ends of the Barclays Premier League table.

The derby at Loftus Road looked like it was heading for a draw until Cesc Fabregas scored the winner three minutes from time to make it five wins in a row away from home for the league leaders.
The Blues remain seven points clear of their nearest challengers Arsenal and they still have a game in hand, which will take place next week against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, given that the Gunners are in FA Cup action on the same day.
Meanwhile the Hoops remain in the relegation zone, two points from safety and have played a game more than most of the rivals down at the bottom of the table.
Ironically Fabregas’ goal surely means that his former club Arsenal have no hope of winning the league now and here is how Twitter responded:
“Fabregas ends Arsenal’s title hopes” Errr what?
