David Wagner bemused by Cesc Fabregas' angry reaction to Chelsea draw

Meanwhile, champions Manchester City said a fond Etihad farewell to Yaya Toure, routing Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 and moving on to 97 points - the most in a Premier League season - and to the verge of a landmark 100-point campaign.

"This achievement for our football club is just incredible", the former USA worldwide said.

Antonio Conte looked nearly certain to lose his job at Chelsea just a couple of months ago, with rumours of dressing room discord circulating and terrible results on the pitch putting them all but out of the race for a top four spot.

Laurent Depoitre gave Huddersfield the lead with their first real attack in the 50th minute at Stamford Bridge, and though Chelsea found a fortuitous equaliser through Marcos Alonso just after the hour mark, the Blues could not find a victor.

There will likely be no Champions League football for Chelsea next season after the Blues played out a disappointing 1-1 draw against Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

But Depoitre beat Caballero to the ball and in the process left him sprawled on the turf, giving the Belgian striker time to clip his shot past Rudiger for his first goal since December.

"For sure there is a bit of disappointment", Conte told a news conference on Tuesday. The future? You never know what will happen because our job is very hard. But we must accept the result.

Newcastle now occupy it despite their 1-0 loss to Tottenham on Wednesday, but they are joined on 41 points by Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Watford, while Brighton - on 40 points - are also in the frame. "We had to get close to them and make it hard". We weren't able to do this.

"I think this season was a hard season, but not only for Morata".

"Every team deserves the pionts that they have in the table". They want to go back by coach.

There are only two weeks and this season will finish and you will know if there is a different situation or not, if you see me again next season and we start again from the first game speculating about my future.

On a scorching afternoon in the capital it required a great deal of commitment to ensure Chelsea saw the game out, and the players responded by giving their all, with eight of the 11 starters covering over 10 km in the Bank Holiday heat. We tried to win the game until the end.
