Martin Keown makes gloomy prediction about Antonio Conte at Chelsea FC

Martin Keown makes gloomy prediction about Antonio Conte at Chelsea FC

With few high-profile managers available in the middle of the season, Enrique has emerged as the main candidate to replace Conte if the Italian fails to turn the tide. But while a manager's exasperation with transfer dealings is inevitable, not to mention something Abramovich has grown accustomed to, keeping the Russian billionaire waiting for a decision could be the surest way to accelerate a departure from Stamford Bridge.

But if the Blues plummet outside the top four, jeopardising Champions League football next season, owner Roman Abramovich will sack him.

The Chelsea players need to shoulder the responsibility for their "abysmal" Premier League displays in recent weeks and not under-fire manager Antonio Conte, defender Gary Cahill said.

Conte made a number of mistakes a year ago, but that one might prove to be the biggest.

This reflects what's going on in the nation and it's obviously a very very severe season and it's lasting a long time. For example, clean/disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home , work or school, especially when someone is ill.

However, mounting a successful defence while also juggling the demands of a European campaign has proved testing, with Chelsea now some 19 points behind leaders Manchester City.

You'd certainly be a fearless man to bet against the beleaguered Blues boss remaining in the hot-seat beyond this month, with crucial Premier League games against Manchester United and City coming up, as well as their two-leg Champions League tie with Barcelona.

The manner in which Conte dealt with senior players like Costa and Luiz called into question his man-management skills and that likely sowed discord among the rest of his squad.

Antonio Conte is set to remain at Chelsea despite the 4-1 defeat at Watford on Monday night which saw the defending champions slump to their second successive Premier League loss.

One word: "Matic", the England women's team head coach told BBC radio.

"I'd be surprised if he was sacked within the next couple of games, they'll probably give him until the summer and look at their options then".

It was a different story for new Watford manager Javi Gracia who modestly described the victory in his first home match in charge as a "good beginning" for his side, which sits in 11th place but is still only six points clear of the relegation zone.

Despite horror shows against the Cherries and the Hornets, Conte's Chelsea win ratio stands at a very healthy 70.3 per cent in the Premier League since he was appointed by the club for the start of the 2016-17 season.

New stamps to mark anniversary of women's right to vote
As much as we can celebrate our own victories, we should not ignore the vast inequality that is still occurring around the world. Women's suffrage was a pivotal moment in the battle for equality, but in 1918, women still faced many forms of discrimination.

Italian boss Conte has come under huge pressure at Stamford Bridge this year.
