Chelsea 1-1 Huddersfield: Blues' UCL hopes up in flames

  • Melchiot slams Chelsea boss Conte: Do you want Hazard to leave?

The Terriers followed up Sunday's goalless draw at champions Manchester City with a point at last season's title winners Chelsea. People said that lineup was not good, but we won. "Listen, my body shape is not how it has to be".

Although Mathias Jorgensen's attempted clearance ricocheted in off Marcos Alonso's face for a Chelsea equaliser, Huddersfield held on to survive ahead of Sunday's game with Arsenal.

"This achievement for our football club is just incredible", the former US global said.

"We did it on our own".

"This is an over-achievement". Pep Guardiola's team also now has 31 wins, surpassing the previous record of 30 set by Chelsea last season. "Tonight I think we've seen everything that counts for us: desire, passion, attitude and togetherness".

"Today we were chanceless, more or less".

Chelsea have often started well and scored first against top quality opposition but all too often have been pegged back. "It feels like another trophy".

Having hampered Chelsea's hopes of gaining a top-4 spot, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool will now only require a point from their final game of the season at home to Brighton & Hove Albion.




"Our intention was to keep the hope alive and the only way was to win the game". We have so many experiences, the play-offs, the final, some very big dips in the season, five defeats in a row.

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.

With seven minutes of normal time remaining Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl somehow pulled off a simply astonishing fingertip save to deny a header from Andreas Christensen, which seemed destined to hit the back of the net.

The Blues could still end the season with some silverware as they are in the FA Cup final, but the supporters have made their disappointment clear.

"This was definitely the most important save in my career, no doubt about it", the 29-year-old Lossl said.

"The dressing-room has shown such togetherness all season, they always believed that in football the impossible is possible".

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.
