Huddersfield draw with Chelsea to give Liverpool huge top-four boost

"There is a bit of disappointment because this season we dropped many points in a stupid way", Conte added.

"This is an unbelievable achievement".

Chelsea are just off the top four places sitting in fifth place, they need three points to leapfrog over Tottenham Hotspur into the guaranteed Champions League spot so will be wanting to guarantee their European travels next season.

Huddersfield's players secured another season in the Premier League because "they always believed the impossible is possible", said boss David Wagner.

As Chelsea scrambled to produce a victor to move level on points with Liverpool, Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl made vital saves, including tipping Andreas Christensen's header on the post.

It also ensured that for only the third time in the Premier League era, the three promoted sides - in this case, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Brighton - all survived.

"To be totally honest my English isn't good enough to describe what the players have done over the whole season", Wagner told Sky Sports. We have to try to do our best.

Given they had a run-in against champions Manchester City, Chelsea - both away from home - and Arsenal, few gave Huddersfield much chance of staying up in recent weeks.

'We weren't able to win the game, this is football'. This season we were predicted to be a team relegated by miles, and I understand it.

Chelsea dominated possession throughout the game on Wednesday night and the visitors were camped inside their own half for long spells but they earned the point they requited to preserve their top-flight status.

This, in turn, had an effect on the team as Chelsea's dominance in the first half was capped off by the lack of end product.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game, they're very good on the ball so we had to get closer and make it hard, so we did it quite well", Mooy said.

'The situation wasn't in our hands and for sure the possibility is less than before, ' the Italian said.

Chelsea's final game of the season will be against Manchester United the FA Cup at Wembley on May 19.

The final 30 minutes were absolutely nerve-shredding for Huddersfield supporters who watched in a severe state of agitation and tension as Chelsea relentlessly bombarded the visiting goalmouth.
