City moved onto 97 points, two more than Chelsea's final total from the 2004-05 season, and 105 goals, two more than Chelsea's previous record haul from the 2009-10 season.

Chelsea have just two Premier: eague fixtures remaining and both are must win games if the Blues are to have any hope of securing Champions L eague football next season.

And Wagner was full of praise for his players after Huddersfield guaranteed their Premier League place for another season.

With time running out, Lossl brilliantly got a diving hand to an Andreas Christensen header, tipping it onto a post.

Cesc Fabregas believes Chelsea's finishing has been the most problematic area of their game this season, after failing to retain the Premier League title.

"It's a bigger achievement than getting promoted", Wagner said.

"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".

Chelsea look set to miss out on qualification for the UEFA Champions League after the point left them needing to win their final game of the season and hope Liverpool lose. "We tried with all of our strength to win but the result penalised our team a lot".


"I'm really happy that this very intense period is over now because we have one week to prepare for Brighton - that feels like a year and we will use that".

The head to head record between the teams is fairly close, with Chelsea just having the edge in wins, 29 to the Terriers 27, 9 games have been drawn.

A draw would have been enough to guarantee safety for David Wagner's side and in the end that's what happened, despite the Blues battering Lossl's goal after Alonso's opener. "But I'm totally focused on the present", Conte said.

"We must give compliments to Huddersfield for this result...congratulations to the club".

In their debut campaign, Huddersfield needed to reproduce the performance that saw them walk away with a goalless draw at Manchester City to be certain of another season in the elite tier.

Asked if he had rested Hazard ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup final with Manchester United, Conte responded: 'No, absolutely not.

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.
