Premier League Predictions: Liverpool, Chelsea in Champions League fight


Laurent Depoitre gave Huddersfield the lead before Marcos Alonso levelled for Chelsea.

Jonas Lossl then made a stunning save seven minutes from the end to turn Andreas Christensen's header onto a post.

Chelsea are fifth ahead of Sunday's final game of the Premier League season at Newcastle and in the FA Cup final with Manchester United on May 19 at Wembley.

"For sure, we had our luck, for sure, Chelsea were the better team".

"This is an unbelievable achievement".

"We're struggling to take a place in the Champions League".

"We'll be trying to get the three points".

"We did it on our own. We love games like this, we knew what we needed, a point".

They will need to not only win at St James' Park but hope that fourth-placed Liverpool, who have a superior goal difference of 15, lose at home to Brighton if they are to avoid dropping into the Europa League next season.

"The only hope and intention was to keep our hopes alive and win the game".

"It's going to be very hard for them (Chelsea) to get in the Champions League now, so maybe that will help us as well".

"We had so many chances and you must be good to take them. It is not the first time that we have not been clinical and suffered". "It's another big game for us but the mindset, like it is every game, is to go and win".

Conte says that Chelsea last season managed to win the league having finished 10th the previous year, so there can be success again even if we finish fifth this time around.

Chelsea players and officials protest to referee Lee Mason.

"Tom Ince will be back, he is in training and will be part of the squad", Wagner told reporters. We saw top, top quality in Chelsea's side, but we saw desire, spirit, great attitude and an unbelievable workrate on our side, and sometimes that's enough.

"I'm very happy. I'm very happy for last season".

"I think and I am sure that I am Chelsea's coach and my focus is only on this", Conte said at a press conference.

"More than one!" he said when asked how many drinks they would be allowed.

"But we must respect Huddersfield".

There are only two weeks and then this season will finish.

It's still important that any tension between club and manager is put aside for the remaining two games of the season, including an FA Cup Final clash with Manchester United.
