Antonio Conte has blasted Chelsea after the 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town at the Stamford Bridge and he acknowledged the fact that his team was 'not clinical' in front of goal.

Chelsea went to the game with hope to close the gap against Liverpool so as to finish in the Champions League spot, the draw simply put the hope of top-four finish in doubt after the Blues failed to claim three points against the Terriers.

Chelsea came from behind to draw the game after registering just five shots from 22 attempts as Conte urged his players to show more zeal in the attack in their remaining game.

"We had so many chances and you must be good to take them. It is not the first time that we are not clinical, there are many circumstances for this. We must accept the final result and the commitment was impressive of the players. We tried to win the game until the end. We were a bit unlucky in many situations.

"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. It is not a situation only for the strikers but the whole team. We must try to improve for the future." He told SkySports.

Chelsea need to win Newcastle and hope Brighton defeat Liverpool at Anfield for them to grab the top four spot and compete in the Champions League next season.
