KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Chelsea, fifth on 69 points, would jump into fourth by beating struggling Huddersfield on Wednesday and Spurs lose to Rafa Benitez's side.Should Huddersfield lose, their Premier League fate would go down to the wire when they host Arsenal in Arsene Wenger's final game in charge of the Gunners.

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 only hope and intention was to keep our hopes alive and win the game", Conte said. We must accept the final result and the commitment was impressive of the players.

"[It] will be a hard game but we have one week - that feels like a year and we will use that".

Fabregas told Sky Sports: "We are taking more chances because we are winning, and that's the most important".

Coming into Sunday's pivotal Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge - a match they needed to win to narrow the gap on the top four - only Arsenal had taken fewer points than Chelsea from matches against the "Big Six" this season. It is not the first time that we are not clinical, there are many circumstances for this.

Socceroos star Mooy's long pass sent Laurent Depoitre racing through on goal, the striker getting to the ball ahead of the sluggish Caballero and regaining his composure to slot into the open goal.

Huddersfield also grabbed a point from runaway champions Manchester City last week.


David Wagner's side will want to finish the job and not have to rely on other results going their way, as in football this won't always happen.

Asked how he planned to celebrate with the squad, Wagner replied: "The guys just said we cancelled their flight".

The Swans missed their chance to move closer to safety on Tuesday night and their defeat at home to relegation rivals Southampton left they praying that Huddersfield lost both of their remaining games.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game, they're very good on the ball so we had to get closer and make it hard, so we did it quite well", Mooy said.

"The situation is not in our hands".

Although Hazard and Olivier Giroud were named on the bench, Conte denied he was prioritising next weekend's FA Cup final against Manchester United.

So when on Sunday Chelsea took a first-half lead, somewhat against the run of play, versus Liverpool in a must-win contest, their fans will have been forgiven for fearing the worst.
