Chelsea top-four hopes hanging by a thread, as Huddersfield survive

10 May 2018

It's a simply remarkable achievement for Huddersfield who were almost everyone's pick to suffer an instant return down to the Championship following their surprise promotion to the Promised Land last season.

A goalless first half was overturned immediately five minutes into the second half as Laurent Depoitre gave Huddersfield a shock and unlikely lead.

Chelsea's club-record signing has comprehensively failed to replace even the majority of Diego Costa's production this season, netting just three times in 2018 - and he rarely threatened a fourth against Huddersfield.

On a dramatic night in the Premier League, Harry Kane scored the only goal at Wembley as Tottenham beat Newcastle 1-0 to move up to third and make sure of their place in next season's Champions League.

China slams US's 'Orwellian nonsense' jab on its Taiwan push
Taiwan is China's most sensitive territorial issue, with China considering the self-ruled, democratic island a wayward province. She said the Trump administration is calling on China "to stop threatening and coercing American carriers and citizens".

Cesc Fabregas believes Chelsea's finishing has been the most problematic area of their game this season, after failing to retain the Premier League title.

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.

The Frenchman will doubtless hope his goodbye goes as sweetly as Toure's for Manchester City as their 34-year-old favourite declared after non-stop cheers at the Etihad: "I think they recognise what I've done for the club".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was in downbeat mood with his team needing to win their final game at Newcastle and hope Liverpool lose at home to Brighton if they are to qualify for the Champions League.

Forsberg keeps scoring highlight-reel goals for Nashville; Predators take Game 6
The Preds came out and fired 20 shots on goal in the first period and 48 shots overall, but they were never able to grab a lead. While Nashville dominated in the face off circle Saturday night, they had trouble keeping possession...

Failing to beat Huddersfield or Newcastle United on Sunday would nearly certainly end Chelsea's hopes of Champions League football next season, but the silver lining for Conte is that Liverpool have gone off the boil recently. "We tried to win the game until the end". Today was a stolen point but, to be perfectly honest, I don't care.

"At the end of the season, you finish in the position you deserve, and we dropped too many points".

Depoitre fired Huddersfield ahead against the run of play with 50 minutes on the clock. "We had great performances individually but it's been all about the team".

"The situation is not in our hands".
