Antonio Conte Under Pressure At Stamford Bridge

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s position is presently under threat following Sunday’s toothless performance against West Ham.

Although Chelsea still in the FA cup race still think their season can rejuvenate.

Conte supposedly to be off this season still has the decision to be accelerate by the club management.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is under pressure once again following their poor performance against West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Sunda

Chelsea’s recent form has been poor, with last weekend’s 3-1 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur leaving them adrift of their north London rivals in the race for the top four.

That margin now stands at 10 points after Chelsea dropped points in the wake of Spurs winning 2-1 at Stoke City on Saturday.

They have won just three Premier League matches since the turn of the year and have just seven wins from their last 20 games in all competitions.

With just six matches to play, it looks increasingly likely the Blues will be playing Europa League football next season.

They can still win the FA Cup, and face Southampton in the semi-final at Wembley on April 22, but that will come as small consolation.

They were also outclassed by Barcelona in the last-16 of the Champions League last month, losing the second leg in the Nou Camp 3-0.

On Sunday, they led West Ham courtesy of a goal from Cesar Azpilicueta 10 minutes before half-time. But they had to settle for a point after Javier Hernandez levelled.

Speaking after Sunday’s draw, Conte told his team he was bored of telling them to take their chances and said their wastefulness would cost them a Champions League place.

The Italian said: ‘You must be clinical and score. Football is simple. If you score, you win

‘Otherwise, if you score only once, you stay in the balance – especially in England. I’m repeating this many times and I’m getting bored.

‘You’re listening always to the same: not clinical. I’m very frustrated and I hope my players go home and stay frustrated because, in this way, we have the right mentality.

‘Otherwise, if we accept this result and say we were unlucky today, we are not building anything positive for the future.’
