Huddersfield Town Facing Struggle To Avoid The Drop

Ilkay Gundogan Leroy Sane Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany of Manchester City celebrate with The Premier League Trophy

Huddersfield visit Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea, the most in-form side in the Premier League, before hosting Arsenal for Arsene Wenger's final away game as Gunners boss.

That would put Southampton above Huddersfield on goal difference and leave Swansea three points behind Wagner's side ahead of the final day when Swansea host Stoke City, a team that hasn't won in 13 Premier League matches.

Last six games: Chelsea DWWWWW Huddersfield Town LLDWLD. "Like I have done last season and exactly as I will do this season".

Times were much happier for Chelsea following this match, with the result bringing them level with Manchester United in second place.

Southampton's victory at Swansea - courtesy of Manolo Gabbiadini's scrappy 72nd-minute goal - relegated 19th-placed West Bromwich Albion while effectively securing their own safety.

Champions Manchester City may not have been at their best at a sun-drenched Etihad on Sunday but it was impossible to fault Huddersfield's organisation and application and they fully deserved their point. You'd expect we'll see him back in action come the start of next season.

The 31-year-old did not have have an impact for at Stamford Bridge, but since grabbing a brace against a struggling Southampton side in April, he hasn't looked back.


The Terriers are also in desperate need of points as they seek to secure their Premier League status for another season.

However, they will be confident that their central defenders will be able to deal with Giroud's presence, particularly after their performance against the champions on Sunday.

Manchester City's first-team squad features players from all across the world and these images, sent to three continents, show just how diverse the playing squad is. If they can nullify the threat of Giroud, they will be going some ways to proving their worth as Premier League players.

David Luiz is ruled out for the hosts, and Alvaro Morata is a doubt.

Danny William and Elias Kachunga are set to miss out for Huddersfield. They are a very good team still fighting for the top four.

Antonio Conte's side are showing the same resilience and form that took them to the title last season and with their nearest rivals dropping points, it's nearly looking like an unstoppable march into Champions League qualification for next season. It's one of the biggest tasks you can face.
