Antonio Conte accepts Chelsea's Champions League hopes are fading

Race for the Champions League How Liverpool Tottenham and Chelsea can make top four

Chelsea vs. Huddersfield: Predicting a Blues win to push top-four hopes

Manchester City's ground-breaking season encountered a minor road block before their Premier League coronation on Sunday but their eyes are now firmly back on completing a record-shredding finale to the campaign.

"But it's all OK, as long as we have it in our own hands, life is good". "To finish here with these games against City and Chelsea is unbelievable".

Like fellow promoted sides Newcastle and Brighton, it'll be down to finding a fine striker if the next step is coming next season.

"We can not deny it would be nice to reach 100 (points)", City manager Pep Guardiola said.

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.

The Italian, widely tipped to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, sidestepped questions about how to improve his squad, saying he was sure the club would look at that later.

Unless Huddersfield can beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, Liverpool will go into Sunday's home game against Brighton knowing they must at least match Chelsea's result against Newcastle, managed by former Reds boss Rafael Benitez.

"The players played a really good game", manager Antonio Conte said.

"I think when you give everything on the pitch people see that and even more when you have the opportunity to be efficient and to bring a plus to the team". We must accept the result and staying fifth in the table, but it's a pity'.

'They tried to get three points but they weren't able to score one goal more than your opposition.

"But congratulations to Huddersfield, the players and the manager and the club, for them".

Lossl was kept busy in the Huddersfield goal and with their place in the Premier League hanging by a thread, Lossl pulled off a stunning save to push Andreas Christensen's header onto the post.

Conte made six changes, but insisted his side should still have prevailed.

Conte couldn't have asked for any more effort from his players, but like so many games in recent months, he acknowledged poor finishing cost us...

Although Hazard and Olivier Giroud were named on the bench, Conte denied he was prioritising next weekend's FA Cup final against Manchester United. "It is stupid to talk about the rotation", he said. We have to finish this season.
