"People said we had no chance, I will not criticise one of them because they were right", said Huddersfield manager David Wagner.

Chelsea were constantly in attack mode, while Huddersfield spent the entirety of the game fending off the Blues' onslaught. "It feels like another trophy for the football club".

Chelsea's response was to fling on the cavalry, on came Olivier Giroud and Eden Hazard to save their Premier League season.

However, a Chelsea surge following the goal until the final whistle wasn't enough as they were unable to find the second goal that resulted in them having to share the points with their opponents.

Elsewhere, champions Manchester City returned to winning ways by seeing off Brighton 3-1, while Arsenal's away woes continued as they slumped to a 1-3 loss at Leicester City. With the players showing a hunger for the cause once more, third-placed Liverpool, who have played a game more, and Tottenham in fourth - three and two points above Chelsea respectively - are under pressure in the season finale. This was not how the Italian would have chosen to bow out if this was his last home match at Stamford Bridge.

"I think for this season this is my last game - it's always the same and I don't have anything to add", Conte said.

"If you analyse all in context I think it's an wonderful season - to have the possibility with two games left to finish third, I think it's massively successful".

"I think this season we dropped many points in a stupid way - especially in games where we dominated and created many chances but we were not able to score more goals".

Exhausted Huddersfield players had flung themselves into a pile on the pitch then raced to celebrate with their bench and the singing fans, preparing for a cheerfully noisy trip back north. "If we stay fifth in the table, it means we deserve to stay in this position".

As Chelsea scrambled to produce a victor to move level on points with Liverpool, Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl made vital saves, including tipping Andreas Christensen's header on the post.

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.

He said: "Now it's not important".

"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".
