Conte promises imminent clarification on Chelsea future

Willian of Chelsea is challenged by Philip Billing of Huddersfield Town this morning

Huddersfield have held the champions from the past two seasons in the last four days to ensure they can not now finish in the Premier League's bottom three.

"We won three games away, against Southampton, Burnley and Swansea, three tough games, and we won at home against Liverpool, so we are doing our job in the best way to put a bit of pressure on Tottenham and Liverpool".

He flighted a delightful ball in the path of Laurent Depoitre, who held his ground after a strong challenge from Chelsea keeper Willy Caballero, to score the Terrier's decisive goal just after the break.

The Egyptian is still chasing the 38-game, single season Premier League record of 32 goals - he has 31 - and was booked for diving on a frustrating afternoon against his former club.

Chelsea have run into form at the ideal time as they head into Wednesday's game with four straight wins and while being unbeaten in their last five Premier League fixtures.

With little expected of their chances to win the league title last season and little expected from the final stages of this season's schedule, it would appear that this is a label the Italian manager relishes under. "We tried with all of our strength to win but the result penalised our team a lot", Conte said.

The French striker has recently forced his way into Conte's thinking with a series of impressive displays. "Usually when you have to play a must-win game, it is not easy".

The forward's goal was enough to defeat third-placed Liverpool on Sunday and extend Chelsea's winning run to four matches.

"I really do think in the last two or three months it has completely changed, due in large part to Manchester City, to Barcelona, to Real Madrid and definitely to us".

Liverpool have played down reports that they have agreed a deal for Lyon's Nabil Fekir. Ahead of their latest encounter, we take a closer look at the two sides. "I'm not sure", Klopp added.

"Today, it was must-win game but not against a simple opponent". Klopp reprimanded Salah but also was disappointed the grappling of Rudiger went unpunished.
