Chelsea saw their hopes of finishing in the top four in the Premier League this season fade on Wednesday night when they drew 1-1 with Huddersfield Town.
The point kept Huddersfield in the top flight, but it was a disaster for Chelsea as Antonio Conte’s side dropped two huge points.
Chelsea can no longer catch Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table, but Liverpool are still in touching distance. That said, the Reds only need a point at home to Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend to ensure that they make the Champions League positions.
Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud were surprisingly left on the bench against Huddersfield, with Pedro and Alvaro Morata selected in the final third.
Pedro, who is valued at £22.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, eventually left the field in the 59th minute after struggling to make his mark, and the Chelsea fans were left furious by the Spaniard’s performance.
The former Barcelona attacker has only managed four Premier League goals for the Blues this term, and it seems that the club’s supporters, who have been unhappy with his performances for the majority of the season, want him to be sold this summer.

Pedro makes way for Hazard.
