Chelsea will face disciplinary actions for surrounding referee in match against Huddersfield

In the aftermath of the game, Chelsea have been charged with failure to control their players by the FA, leaving them with five days to appeal the decision.

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is back in contention after recovering from a minor knock that kept him out of the Huddersfield game in weekend so Willy Caballero is set to make way following his error during the 1-1 draw.

Antonio Conte's side were desperate for a win in the penultimate fixture which could have maintained the pressure on Tottenham and Liverpool in the race for the top four.

However, Huddersfield held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw, damaging Chelsea's chances of qualifying for next season's Champions League, securing their top flight survival in the process.




Huddersfield took a shock lead through Laurent Depoitre before Marcos Alonso drew Chelsea level.

And Conte, who rested Eden Hazard and was without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois due to a back injury, accepts a top-four finish will now be hard for Chelsea.

"The situation wasn't in our hands before this game and, for sure, the possibility is less now after this game", Conte said at the post-match press conference.

"Now we must be focused on the league, to try to finish in the best possible way". But we weren't able to win the game. But they weren't able to score one goal more than our opponent. We weren't able to do this. "If we stay fifth in the table, it means we deserve to stay in this position".
