Chelsea vs Huddersfield : Top four bid Antonio Conte's side in tatters

A few weeks ago, the Blues looked down and out and nearly certain to miss out on Champions League football, but a combination of both Liverpool and Spurs dropping points and Chelsea winning their last four matches has changed the complexion of the top-four race. "This is his first season in this country".

Olivier Giroud has shown that he can act as the target man for Chelsea whenever called upon, so Conte or the Chelsea hierarchy are better off looking at strikers who fit the bill and are long-term options as well.

Belief is what David Wagner will look to instil in his players ahead of the fixture. Huddersfield along with Swansea have scored the fewest goals in the Premier League this season.

With only one win in their last five league games, third placed Liverpool have made their top four status an unnecessarily tense affair. Reports from Italy claim that Chelsea are keeping a close eye on the Uruguayan global, and are convinced that he is the right man to replace Spanish star Alvaro Morata, who has struggled in England.

Antonio Conte says a decision over his future at Chelsea will become clear once they have finished their season in less than two weeks' time.

"Every team deserves the pionts that they have in the table".

Theresa May last week promised a "robust" response when the EU Withdrawal Bill returns to the Commons. The Lords have inflicted 14 defeats on the government's bill so far.

Conte won three consecutive Scudetto titles before leaving the Old Lady in 2014, and successor Massimiliano Allegri has continued that dominance. "I'm really happy and proud of them". We saw top, top quality in Chelsea's side, and we saw desire, spirit, great attitude and an unbelievable work rate on our side, and sometimes that's enough.

"Usually when you play a must-win game it is not easy because it's normal to be a bit nervous", Blues boss Conte said.

Currently in fifth place, Chelsea's attempt to salvage a troubled season by finishing in the top four is now out of their hands heading into the final game of the season at Newcastle this weekend.

With only one previous encounter in the Premier League, a 1-3 home defeat for the Terriers earlier this season, they're yet to beat the Londoners in their current setting.

A win for Chelsea will pave the way for some tension amongst the top-four next Sunday but Huddersfield are not likely to be a pushover for the Blues.

They face Huddersfield Town tomorrow morning (Singapore time) and Newcastle United on Sunday.
