Conte urges Chelsea to stand by him

Conte urges Chelsea to stand by him

"We are doing. we are keeping our expectations", Conte told reporters at Cobham Training Ground.

"I think we are ready". If I remember, there were two teams everyone spoke about fighting for the title, both from Manchester.

This is where we badly missed Grzegorz Krychowiak, who has grown in prominence after a slow start to his Baggies career. If I have a player who is 8/10, I take him to 10/10.

Antonio Conte hasn't lost three consecutive league games as manager since November 2009, when he was with Atalanta in Serie A. "For this, I'm very good", he said.

Speaking after the game, Conte referred to acknowledging mistakes and taking responsibility, but it's perhaps most telling that he was referring to the players being confused and not reacting well to either the equalizer, or the Watford goals.

The Italian added: "We're talking about a team that is fourth in the league and preparing to face Barcelona in the Champions League".

"We are in the FA Cup competition, and we reached the semi-finals in the Carabao Cup". But, maybe, we are increasing the difficulty of this team. "You know very well the importance of the player". In my hand, there is the will.

"I don't know why".

He is fed up with the rumours of his future and the continued silence from the club.

"This is my opinion".

"My task is to try to improve every single player, in every aspect - about mentality also, about the desire, the will to fight, and the tactical aspects".

The Blues have lost consecutive league games by a margin of three or more goals for the first time since October 1995 (1-4 vs Man Utd, 0-3 vs Blackburn) - they've never previously lost three in a row by such a margin in the top flight. I'd just arrived last season.

Chelsea's players were given three days off following the heavy defeat at Vicarage Road.

Antonio Conte has admitted to being "a disaster" when it comes to persuading Chelsea to sign players.

"A lot of the time the manager's future depends on the results".

"But it does not mean you have to win a trophy, because that's not easy". But in my vision, you can win but, at the same time, the club might not be happy to stay with you. In that case, [they might consider] it's right to send the coach away. There are two ways [to run a club].

Stop blaming City, Arsene!

Merson also made the claim that were Wenger not in the helm for so long, multiple world-class managers would have jumped at the opportunity to manage Arsenal - and things would perhaps be much different for the North London club.

"Chelsea had great momentum last season and they played a system that everybody was trying to deal with".
