Harry Kane fires Tottenham Hotspur into Champions League as Chelsea's charge falters

HUDDERSFIELD secured their Premier League status after a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea repeatedly poured forwards, but found no way through, sparking jubilant celebrations from the visitors. The only chance of qualifying for the Champions League now for Chelsea is for Liverpool to lose their final fixture at home against Brighton while Antonio Conte's men win theirs away to Newcastle United.

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

Describing the people of Huddersfield and the people within the club as "humble but ambitious", the German has orchestrated an incredible Premier League survival story. "We don't have this situation in our hands, but I have experience about these kind of end of season situations".

This season has been Joe's most prolific since joining from Charlton in 2015, making 31 appearances across all competitions for the Reds, earning three caps for England, and making his full debut against Germany last October.

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

Given that he praised January arrival Giroud in the same interview, the criticism of Morata was clear.




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.

But the problem is broader than Morata.

This is the first meeting between these sides at Stamford Bridge since February 2008, when they met in the FA Cup fifth round - Chelsea won 3-1.

They have drawn or lost against Burnley, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Watford, Bournemouth and now Huddersfield despite registering more shots.

David Wagner and his team can start planning ahead for the 2018-2019 campaign, with Swansea needing a win against Stoke City at the weekend and a 10-goal swing in goal difference to overhaul Southampton. Their deep and compact defence eventually took the sting out of Chelsea's early urgency, and Lossl took his time with every goal kick. It was Depoitre's first goal since December 23.

Only time will tell whether Huddersfield are sustainable in the top flight.

Yet perfectionist Guardiola will be irritated if their majestic campaign is not rewarded with a three-figure flourish, even though he concedes it will be mighty hard, especially with Southampton fighting for their Premier League lives on Sunday.
