Huddersfield seal survival as Chelsea's top-four hopes fade

Jurgen Klopp Confident Liverpool Will Seal Champions League Spot

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte all but conceded defeat in his side's bid to reach next season's Champions League after their failure to beat Huddersfield confirmed Tottenham's qualification and saved the Terriers.

It looks unlikely, however.

We now have 105 - two more than the 103 Chelsea bagged in 2009-10. Chelsea must also win away at Newcastle which, judging by their steely performance against Spurs, won't be easy.

"They made hard work of a match they absolutely should have won".

Chelsea attempted a lap of honour for the last home game of the season but it was a brief and half-hearted affair, drowned out by the celebrating Huddersfield fans and with most disappointed home supporters already making their way to the tube.

"I think you remember".

And Conte admits he is finally starting to feel the nerves. The Betfair Ambassador is also in no doubt about his manager of the season.

"This is an absolute overachievement", said Wagner, who admitted his squad would be allowed "more than one beer" by way of reward. I think there's still a case for putting this season aside and having the same set up next season.

He added: "If you remember, last season after 10th place we won. It's another big game for us but the mindset, like it is every game, is to go and win".

"If you have the passion, desire and spirit, you can compete with top quality", Wagner said. "It's about trying everything". Speaking at the latest awards ceremony to honour his achievements, the "Egyptian King" has said his failure at Stamford Bridge is inspiring him to succeed.

Elsewhere, champions Manchester City returned to winning ways by seeing off Brighton 3-1, while Arsenal's away woes continued as they slumped to a 1-3 loss at Leicester City.

Conte refused to appraise his performance and declined to say what it would take to close the gap to champions Manchester City, insisting that was not a question to be answered now. They're certainly not on holiday yet and that's got to be an encouraging sign for Pep for next season and one of the reasons he is the standout manager of the season. At the same time they surpassed the 95 points achieved by Chelsea in 2004-05.

Another season outside Europe's elite club competition would be a significant blow to Chelsea, who managed to win the Premier League title under Conte after finishing 10th in 2015-16 under Jose Mourinho and interim successor Guus Hiddink.

The only scenario that will see both Liverpool and Chelsea making the Champions League is if the Blues leapfrog Klopp's team on Sunday and the Reds win the Champions League.
