Comments:

League position: 5th This was Chelsea's 500th home game in the Premier League (won 313, lost 66). Marcos Alonso had now scored eight goals in all competitions in this season; the most by a recognised defender in Europe’s top five leagues so far in 2017-18. Laurent Depoitre became the second player to score in both home and away games against Chelsea in the Premier League in this season after Watford's Roberto Pereyra.

Comments:

League position: 16th With one game still to play in their first season in this division, this result confirmed that Huddersfield Town would play in the Premier League in 2018-19. As Brighton and Hove Albion and Newcastle United also stayed up, this became the third season in Premier League history when all three promoted teams avoided relegation; also 2001-02 (Blackburn Rovers, Fulham and Bolton Wanderers) and 2011-12 (Swansea City, Norwich City, Queens Park Rangers). This was only the sixth of their 19 away games in this Premier League season when the Terriers had scored (won three, drawn three).
