We have to trust in our work: Conte

We have to trust in our work: Conte

"When you have this period with such poor results, you have to divide the responsibility between me, the players and the club", said Conte.

Speculation has been rife over the last few weeks that the Italian is ready to walk away from the blues after suffering back-to-back defeats to Bournemouth and Watford.

Chelsea face West Bromwich Albion on Monday night seeking to avoid three successive Premier League defeats, having won just twice in 10 games. My task is this. I am very good.

"A lot of time in football the manager and the coach depends on the result". I can learn a lot in that aspect.

"If you ask me (if) he needs one month, one day, two months or the rest of the season, I don't know".

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. "I'm this type of coach".

As for his reaction on stories linking Chelsea with a managerial change, Conte warned the club to avoid doing something "stupid" like sacking him. They are last in the Premier League and Saturday's result left them five points from safety.

And Pardew believes the Premier League champions have suffered in part due to the departure of the Brazil-born Spain striker, who hit 20 goals last season before returning to Atletico Madrid.

If it's so, his fiercest defenders must be tempted to say, "Who can blame him?"




Despite those setbacks and the hard road ahead, Conte thinks that some of the criticism of him and his team has been overblown in the past fortnight.

"They shouldn't be in too much of a rush to allow their best players to leave". I have great admiration for Luis Enrique and, sometime, he is a fantastic coach.

All these gave rise to his earning the Serie A league title three times and landed him the role of the National Coach of Gli Azzurrri. It's finished. We took a decision. It's the same for me. Everyone knows his job, his work.

Chelsea have had two games every week since mid-November and the players appeared to tire in January, with injuries starting to hit that included eight hamstring problems.

Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink during a training session at Chelsea FC Training Ground, Stoke D'Abernon. When you have got those two dates to look forward to when the fixtures come out every season, it adds an extra sense of excitement and anticipation to the campaign ahead.

"Then you build something with him".

"But I think that, usually when you work, you don't smile". It's very hard to smile.

Did they feed off the joy and the energy and did they draw any lessons on how they might begin to see a new way of presenting themselves?

"I don't think anyone trusted in us to win the title this season". We played against each other. "We are ready, I think".
