Huddersfield safe as Spurs seal Champions League spot

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner celebrates after his side had secured Premier League status

HUDDERSFIELD secured their Premier League status after a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The result was also a huge blow to the Blues' fading Champions League qualification hopes as that now goes to the final day at Newcastle. They must win and hope Brighton beat Champions League finalists Liverpool at Anfield.

Laurent Depoitre put the Terriers ahead five minutes into the second half when he latched onto a long ball from Aaron Mooy and although he saw his first effort saved by Willy Caballero he turned the rebound into the net.

The lead lasted just 13 minutes though as Marcos Alonso levelled when Cesar Azpilicueta's cross was drilled against the full-back and rebounded into the net.

Jonas Lossl then made a stunning save seven minutes from the end to turn Andreas Christensen's header onto a post.

Manchester City set a record for the most goals in a Premier League season with 105 as they beat Brighton 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

Danilo's superb finish put City ahead after 15 minutes but Brighton hauled themselves level five minutes later when Davy Propper rounded Bravo inside the penalty area and stuck the ball up at the back post for Leonardo Ulloa to head home.

And City got the record-breaking goal on 34 minutes, Leroy Sane crossing for Bernardo Silva to clinically beat Mat Ryan.

Sane's cutback was then turned home by Fernandinho 19 minutes from the end to wrap up the victory, which set two more Premier League records - for most wins (31) and most points (97).

Jamie Vardy returned to haunt Arsene Wenger on his farewell tour as Leicester cruised past 10-man Arsenal 3-1.

The Gunners could still end the season pointless away from home in 2018 after Vardy netted his sixth goal in six games against Wenger to help condemn them to defeat.

Kelechi Iheanacho opened the scoring in the first half just 92 seconds before Konstantinos Mavropanos was dismissed for the visitors.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did level but Vardy's spot-kick and Riyad Mahrez's late goal settled the game - leaving the Gunners with the same away record as relegated West Brom ahead of Sunday's trip to Huddersfield.

Harry Kane's 28th goal of the season secured Champions League football for Tottenham after a 1-0 win over Newcastle.

Heung-Min Son picked Kane out five minutes into the second half and the England hitman calmly rifled into the roof of the net.
