Antonio Conte not considering 'for one moment' of Chelsea axe

"We struggle to find the solution and to solve the pain in his back".

"I don't know how long he will be out and for this reason I'm a bit anxious". If the club decides to send me away, I don't know when, it'll be because they're not happy with my work.

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has said that Alvaro Morata is in danger of missing Chelsea's Champions League showdown with Barcelona due to his "worrying" back injury. "We defended very well, had two penalties against us with a lot of question marks around them, but no one is going to talk about that", added Van Dijk.

Conte is now under pressure from his board after a poor run of results for the Premier League defending champions, which has put their top-4 spot under jeopardy.

"It won't be easy, the confidence is not high but we have to trust in our work and football".

He also defended his decision to hand his players and backroom staff there days off after their defeat to Watford, citing congested fixtures.

The defending Premier League champions allowed Serbia worldwide Nemanja Matic to move to title rivals Manchester United in a £40m deal back in August.

"But, for sure, Christensen is an important player for us".

"In the future it will be very important for the federation to give a little bit of rest to the players". Two bad results but against Bournemouth we created chances but weren't too clinical.

Chelsea's underwhelming form since the turn of the year is threatening to turn into a crisis after two defeats in a row by three-goal margins against lesser opposition. We conceded three in eight minutes.

If Jonny Evans is sidelined on Monday night, I'd move Craig Dawson to centre-back alongside Ahmed Hegazi, leaving Allan Nyom and Gibbs to fill the full-back positions. To do this we must have personality to play with the ball.

There will be an enforced change in central midfield, because Tiemoue Bakayoko is suspended following his dismissal against Watford last Monday - although on the evidence of his half-hour performance, that won't be much of a blow to Chelsea.

Conte and Chelsea have made a mess of defending the Premier League title they claimed last season, the Blues are 22 points being current leaders Manchester City. "Sanchez, for him it was very hard because as soon as he had game that was average he was questioned about his commitment and that is not his case".
