Huddersfield, who needed a point to be sure of avoiding relegation, took a shock lead in the 50th minute when a long ball from Aaron Mooy found Laurent Depoitre who won a challenge with Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero on the edge of the box and put the ball in the empty net.

Another season outside Europe's elite club competition would be a significant blow to Chelsea, who managed to win the Premier League title under Conte after finishing 10th in 2015-16 under Jose Mourinho and interim successor Guus Hiddink.

Most interest is likely to be directed towards the top of the table where next season's Champions League representatives will be decided.

"That's the situation but it's no problem to play the game, we have to play it anyway so now we have to win it, that's it".

Conte pointed to this success as evidence that Chelsea's current regression need not become a more prolonged decline, and he believes that the club are better positioned for future success than they were at the same stage two years ago.

"There are six top teams at the start of the season ready to fight for a place in the Champions League".

They then have to rely on champions Manchester City beating Southampton heavily at St Mary's but still require a 10-goal swing in goal difference for them to leapfrog Saints. They have played an outstanding season.

"I think this league is great, is the toughest league in the world".

"I'm very happy. I'm very happy for last season. If you are clever you continue to learn and improve yourself, to try and be better in the future".
