David Wagner: Huddersfield boss praises his players after securing survival

Following a surprise 0-0 draw with Huddersfield Town on Sunday, maximum points from their final two games, at home to Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday (today) and away at Southampton, would ensure the champions finish on exactly 100 points.

It's a simply remarkable achievement for Huddersfield who were almost everyone's pick to suffer an instant return down to the Championship following their surprise promotion to the Promised Land last season.

Marcos Alonso's fortunate goal helped Chelsea come from behind to claim a 1-1 draw at home after influential Australia midfielder Aaron Mooy started the move that led to Huddersfield's shock opener, as the Terriers secured Premier League survival at the likely expense of Swansea City.

A goalmouth scramble concluded with Lossl brilliantly pushing Andreas Christensen's header on to the post.

Huddersfield have held the champions from the past two seasons in the last four days to ensure they can not now finish in the Premier League's bottom three. We must accept the final result and the commitment was impressive of the players.

"The dressing-room has shown such togetherness all season, they always believed that in football the impossible is possible and we have done it".

Now Chelsea have to rely on the slim hope that they win their last match at Newcastle on Sunday while Champions League finalists Liverpool, on 72, lose at home to Brighton.

"There is a bit of disappointment because this season we dropped many points in a stupid way", Conte added.

Manchester City set a record for the most goals in a Premier League season with 105 as they beat Brighton 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium. But we weren't able to win the game.

"We have had many, many chances to score in games - to win games that we didn't win, games that we drew", he told Sky Sports.

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

Wagner's players soaked up constant Chelsea pressure before and after their surprise 50th-minute goal, scored by Laurent Depoitre - their sole shot on target. "We had great performances individually but it's been all about the team".

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.

'The situation wasn't in our hands and for sure the possibility is less than before, ' the Italian said.
