Chelsea’s hopes of making it to the Champions League next season is almost over, as the draw against Huddersfield has all but killed Chelsea’s outside chances of ending the season in 4th.
Chelsea entered the year 2018 third on the table, but a poor run of form took the Blues out of the top four, and Antonio Conte has insisted that Chelsea deserves to be 5th.
Speaking to the media after the game against Huddersfield, Conte said: “I’m realistic, and I think at the end of the season you finish in the position you deserve. We dropped many points this season, and if we stay in fifth it means we deserve it.
“Now we have to focus on finishing this season. We have another league game to play, then an FA Cup final, then the club will do the best to improve the situation.”
