Confirmed! Conte to stay despite defeat at Watford


Antonio Conte will not be sacked as Chelsea manager in the wake of Monday night’s 4-1 defeat at Watford.

His position was not discussed after the match, since when he has given his players three days off.

Sources at Stamford Bridge point to the fact Chelsea remain in the top four, and are still in the Champions League and FA Cup, as reason not to make a change at the present time.

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has also backed the Italian.

He said players needed to “look in the mirror” following the defeat at Vicarage Road.

After the Blues’ second straight three-goal defeat, Conte said “the club have to take another decision” if they think he is not doing a good enough job.

The defending champions are now fourth in the Premier League, 19 points behind leaders Manchester City.

“Whatever is decided, the players have to take responsibility,” Cahill said.

“The manager has done an absolutely unbelievable job.”
