Chelsea boss Conte again complains about goalscorers after Huddersfield draw

Antonio Conte

Jonas Lossl was in superb form at Stamford Bridge, and denied Chelsea a late goal that helped seal Huddersfield's Premier League status.

The best scenario for the Terriers would have been for Swansea to beat Southampton, meaning that the Saints would have definitely needed something in their last home game, which just happens to be against Manchester City. Soon after the break, an unmarked Antonio Rudiger headed over from Willian's free kick and exasperation grew.

Aaron Mooy's raking long ball had found Laurent Depoitre on the edge of the box and while Willy Caballero made a fearless stop to deny the forward initially, the rebound fell kindly for the Belgian, who tapped in with glee.

Chelsea were level soon after in fortunate circumstances, Huddersfield defender Mathias Jorgensen blasting the ball straight into the face of Alonso, and seeing it fly in.

Chelsea poured forward, abandoning all formation and composure in search of a victor.

Chelsea kept up the pressure as they pushed for a victor and Huddersfield keeper Jonas Lossl turned a header by Andreas Christensen on to the 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.

Liverpool are fourth with 72 points and considering they host Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield on Sunday, it would take a minor miracle to keep Chelsea's hopes of Champions League football alive.

Chelsea will be without Centre Back David Luiz who is out with a knee injury but is expected back for Chelsea's last game of the season.

"We had these situations a few times and it will be, for sure, exciting because Brighton is in a good moment, they played fantastic against (Manchester) United".

Pep Guardiola's men, 20 points clear at the top, also set a new mark for most goals in a season in the Premier League era, with strikes from Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho taking the tally to 105.

There has been a lot of speculation about whether the Italian will still be at the club in the summer after periods of public disgruntlement at the manager.

But the problem is broader than Morata.

Like Conte, Courtois has 12 months remaining on his current contract and, with Chelsea unlikely to gamble on him leaving for nothing, the Belgian may have played his final game at Stamford Bridge unless he agrees an extension.

They have drawn or lost against Burnley, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Watford, Bournemouth and now Huddersfield despite registering more shots. "We had great performances individually but it's been all about the team".
