  • Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson reveals latest Premier League predictions

Laurent Depoitre's goal gave the Terriers the lead at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, Jonas Lossl making a wonder save late on after Marcos Alonso's freakish equaliser.

Willy Caballero deputised for the injured Thibaut Courtois and the reserve goalkeeper's 50th-minute mistake gave the visitor a shock lead at Stamford Bridge.

Pep Guardiola's men, 20 points clear at the top, also set a new mark for most goals in a season in the Premier League era, with strikes from Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho taking the tally to 105.

Some late goalmouth scrambles felt as tense for us as they did Huddersfield fans, and the away faithful celebrated wildly at the final whistle.

David Wagner's side will want to finish the job and not have to rely on other results going their way, as in football this won't always happen.

"To be totally honest my English isn't good enough to describe what the players have done over the whole season", Wagner told Sky Sports.

It also ensured that for only the third time in the Premier League era, the three promoted sides - in this case, Huddersfield, Newcastle and Brighton - all survived.

Recall that a year ago , Higgins also played in the world Cup final, but in a bitter struggle gave way to a younger Mark Selby. The 43-year-old became the oldest victor of the Betfred World Championship since compatriot Ray Reardon in 1978.

Against Brighton, who can relax after winning their fight for survival, the Etihad faithful will be expecting normal service to be resumed, with City needing a win to move to 97 points, two more than Chelsea's landmark of 95 in 2004-05.

"This season we were predicted as the team to get relegated by miles and I understand it".

Chelsea have just two Premier: eague fixtures remaining and both are must win games if the Blues are to have any hope of securing Champions L eague football next season. "Usually when you have to play a must-win game, it is not easy".

"People said we had no chance, I will not criticise one of them because they were right".

In addition to individuals underperforming, there is a sense that Conte's 3-4-3 system has been worked out by many opponents, and regardless of whether the Italian leaves this summer, Chelsea must remodel the attacking half of their team from the ground up on and off the pitch. For sure, they started this game with only one target in their mind: to take one point.

Asked if he had rested Hazard ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup final with Manchester United, Conte responded: 'No, absolutely not.

Willian was disposed inside the Chelsea half and Huddersfield midfielder Aaron Mooy launched a high ball forward.
