Antonio Conte defends his decision to leave out Eden Hazard against Huddersfield

Rita JamesMay 13, 2018

Huddersfield, meanwhile, is in danger of relegation as it enters Wednesday in 17th place in the table, just three points clear of the drop zone.

With 11 goals in 29 Premier League matches - and 15 in 45 across all competitions - the Spaniard has struggled after initially hitting the ground running as some Chelsea fans believe his time in England may end in disappointment after just one season.

Chelsea now sit in fifth place in the Premier League table with 69 points, just two behind fourth place Tottenham.

"As you know very well you have to score one goal more than your opponent to get the points and a lot of times this season we have made chances but not taken them". We weren't able to do this.

His compatriot Diego Costa returned to Atletico Madrid to heap pressure on Morata in his debut season in the Premier League. "We are fifth and we must accept this".

Asked if he had rested Hazard ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup final with Manchester United, Conte responded: "No, absolutely not. To make rotations means to play people like (Alvaro) Morata, Willian and (Andreas) Christensen who could play every game".

Reports are growing that Juventus want to bring Alvaro Morata back, as Chelsea would let him go on loan with option for a total €62m. At Burnley we won the rotation was good.

"But we must respect Huddersfield".

In Arsene Wenger's penultimate match as Arsenal manager, the Gunners suffered yet another wretched away day, losing 3-1 at Leicester City while having to play for 74 minutes with 10 men following a straight red card for Konstantinos Mavropanos.
