David Wagner Was Quite Happy Doing Jurgen Klopp A Favour Tonight

Having defied most pre-season expectations, David Wagner and Huddersfield Town secured their Premier League status tonight with a 1-1 draw away to Antonio Conte's Chelsea.

On a night where Chelsea desperately needed a win to maintain any realistic chance of playing Champions League football next season, Huddersfield were resolute throughout and took their chance when it came.

Speaking after the match to Sky Sports, Wagner believes a certain friend of his in Liverpool owes him a drink; "That is the least he could do."

Having hampered Chelsea's hopes of gaining a top-4 spot, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool will now only require a point from their final game of the season at home to Brighton & Hove Albion.

With a far superior goal difference to Conte's side, Chelsea will be relying upon Chris Hughton's side pulling off a major shock.

In a refreshing take on things from the winner's perspective, Wagner was quick to point out that those who had not given his side a chance were by and large correct in doing so:

I will not criticise one of them because they were right.

Under the circumstances we started the season, for a football club of our size, we are anything but a Premier League club, but we were in this competition and we said, 'Come on.'

Describing the people of Huddersfield and the people within the club as 'humble but ambitious', the German has orchestrated an incredible Premier League survival story.
