The Spain global last started a game against Burnley on April 19 and was left out of the squad entirely for the 1-0 win over Liverpool last time out.

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

Chelsea's failure to pick up all three points brought to an end their four game winning running, their best run of form in 2018, and was a hammer blow to their hopes of finishing in the top four. But we must accept the result.

Antonio Conte admits Olivier Giroud's capture from Arsenal in the January transfer window has turned out to be an excellent bit of business for Chelsea. Football is simple. If you want to win, you have to score one goal more than your opponent. "We weren't able to do this".

Huddersfield soared into 16th place on 37 points, four clear of 18th-placed Swansea, who now have to rely on what manager Carlos Carvalhal has called a "miracle" if they are to survive.

Elsewhere, champions Manchester City said a fond Etihad farewell to Yaya Toure, routing Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 and moving on to 97 points - the most in a Premier League season - and to the verge of a landmark 100-point campaign. "If we stay fifth in the table, it means we deserve to stay in this position".

He added: "I think for this season this is my last game - it's always the same and I don't have anything to add". For this reason, they wanted to defend very deep. "But congratulations to Huddersfield, the players and the manager and the club, for them".
