Chelsea charged by FA for half-time incident against Huddersfield

Chelsea charged by FA for half-time incident against Huddersfield

Antonio Conte's chances of getting his Chelsea team into the top four took a serious blow as they were held by Huddersfield Town on Wednesday night, meaning they now sit two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool with just one game remaining.

The players travelled by train on Thursday morning after partying in the capital to celebrate an achievement few thought possible. They tried to get three points.

Huddersfield looked set for relegation last week but they followed up Sunday's draw with champions Manchester City with another point at last season's title-winners Chelsea.

Wagner worked with Klopp at Borussia Dortmund before they both eventually moved to Premier League.

Chelsea were frustrated by time-wasting and gamesmanship throughout the game, with the result denting their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

"But it's a pity because I saw a fantastic commitment from my players". A draw would not be enough for the Blues, given Liverpool's commanding goal difference advantage.

Laurent Depoitre opened scoring for the visitors five minutes after the break, before Marcos Alonso equalized for Antonio Conte's men.

'This is an unbelievable achievement, we have a further season in the Premier League. We are Chelsea. We have a big squad and players who can play the whole game, but they must win.

'I don't think that's the right way, he should have stopped that before, but still we conceded the goal and failed to score from our chances.
