Swansea City one step closer to relegation after Huddersfield V Chelsea draw

Their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield means Tottenham are guaranteed Champions League football again after their 1-0 victory against Newcastle.

Against Brighton, who can relax after winning their fight for survival, the Etihad faithful will be expecting normal service to be resumed, with City needing a win to move to 97 points, two more than Chelsea's landmark of 95 in 2004-05.

"The situation wasn't in our hands before this game and, for sure, the possibility is less now after this game", Conte told a post-match news conference. "It is not the first time that we are not clinical", lamented Conte, who ducked questions over his future. We have to try to do our best. Now the target is just to win and be in the top four at the end of the season and, if we play like this the last three games, we can have something special at the end of the season.

'It's very hard to explain the draw, ' the boss began. But we must accept the result. "We are fifth and we must accept this".

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 were predicted as a team to get relegated". We had chances to score but we didn't take them.

"Today, it was must-win game but not against a simple opponent". We weren't able to do this.

"We have worked together on this project and I think I am the last person to make a judgement on this season".

"We dropped many points this season". Every team deserves the points they have in the table.

Conte declined to look beyond this season, with the trip to Newcastle followed by the May 19 FA Cup final with Manchester United.

"I did the rotation also against Burnley", Conte said.

Chelsea: Willy Caballero 6, Antonio Rudiger 5, Andreas Christensen 6, Cesar Azpilicueta 6, Marcos Alonso 6, Cesc Fabregas 6, N'Golo Kante 6, Davide Zappacosta 6, Alvaro Morata 6, Pedro 6, Willian 7.

"It was very hard, we ran a lot". People said that lineup was not good, but we won.

'We must respect Huddersfield's plan. With one game to go they trail Liverpool in fourth place by two points. For this reason, they wanted to defend very deep. "He gives us belief and confidence".
