The Huddersfield Town team celebrate in front of their fans

Huddersfield Town sealed their Premier League status with a critical 1-1 draw as the Terriers earned a point against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

 

Fans of the West Yorkshire club stayed back to celebrate with their heroes as David Wagner and his team achieved Premier League survival as many saw them being relegated. This is first time since 2012 that all promoted teams stayed up. Huddersfield opened the scoring as Laurent Depoitre bulldozed through Chelsea’s defence and scored a priceless goal for Huddersfield.

 

Chelsea equalized from a lucky goal from Marcos Alonso and pressured Huddersfield introducing Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud early in the second half but the Terriers held their nerve with goalkeeper Jonas Lössl making a critical save.

 

For Chelsea, their Champions League hopes is now out of their hands as Liverpool only need a draw against Brighton at home as the Reds have a better goal difference than the blues raising more questions over the future of manager Antonio Conte.

 

On the other games, Spurs sealed Champions League football next season with a 1-0 win against Newcastle United. Harry Kane scored his 28th league goal moving Spurs to third in the league table.

 

Arsenal woes away from home continues losing 3-1 against Leicester City. Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez scored for the Foxes while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored with Greek defender Mavropanos sent off in the first half.

 

Yaya Toure played his last game at the Etihad as City beat Brighton 3-1. It has a record breaking season for the Citizens as City has gained the most points(97), scored more goals(105) and won more games (31) in a Premier League season.
