A seventh home loss of the season, though, coupled with wins for relegation rivals Crystal Palace, Southampton and West Bromwich Albion, has left Huddersfield three points above the drop zone.

"They only way that we have to put a bit of pressure on the top four is to win".

Liverpool, who still have to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, lead the Blues by six points with two games in hand although superior goal difference may prove decisive for Juergen Klopp's side.

"We got three points and it was very important for us if we wanted to keep hopes alive and achieve Champions League football", Conte said after his 50th victory in the Premier League.
