Chelsea's top-4 hopes take massive hit with Huddersfield Town draw

After being dethroned by Manchester City as champions, Chelsea is scrapping to make the top four and qualify for the Champions League on the final day of the season.

"For sure we had so many chances and you must be good to take them".

"At the same time, we have to try".

"It is not a situation only for the strikers, but the whole team".

"We can not deny it would be nice to reach 100 (points)", City manager Pep Guardiola said. We must accept staying fifth in the table.

Chelsea have struggled this term after the title success and their top-four hopes are not in their control despite four straight wins.

At the Etihad, champions Manchester City added three more records to a sensational season by breaking the previous best Premier League marks for wins, points and goals in a 3-1 victory over Brighton. We have to try to do our best.

A statement from the club confirmed Gomez's season was over, saying: "The surgery means the 20-year-old will play no part in the remaining two fixtures of the 2017/18 campaign, or the World Cup finals with England".

A draw would have been enough to guarantee safety for David Wagner's side and in the end that's what happened, despite the Blues battering Lossl's goal after Alonso's opener. "We've seen desire, spirit, attitude to get an unbelievable result".

"We have done it". I'm so unbelievably proud.

It was a gamble that backfired, but Conte refused to accept he made the wrong decision.

"It's stupid if we think rotation was a problem".

"We are Chelsea. We have a big squad".

Leicester took the lead in the 14th minute when - after a goalmouth scramble - a cross to the back post found Fousseni Diabate, whose headed pass back across the box was lashed home by Kelechi Iheanacho.

Town has its midfielder/playmaker/hard-edged man in Aaron Mooy, and he's quite happy after moving from Man City.

Conte responded by sending on Giroud and Hazard and Chelsea grabbed a freakish equaliser in the 62nd minute.

Marcos Alonso levelled the scores in the 62nd minute in fortuitous circumstances, an attempted clearance ricocheting off his face and into the net.

The Blues pressed hard for a victor in a chaotic second half but simply could not find a way past a committed Huddersfield side who will be playing in the top flight again next season.

It looked as though it might be the victor, too, until Jonas Lossl came flying into view and somehow managed to touch it on to the post.
