Chelsea are not going through a brilliant moment and Blues boss Antonio Conte is under pressure in this special moment, with the team that have been failing to deliver in the last month.
The west London side collected two defeats, one draw and one win in the last month, but also the last two games were on the brink until the last moment, with the risk of losing them until the last minutes and poor performances by the team.
This is the reason why Conte was asked if he is feeling a special pressure in this delicate period, with some rumours of an imminent sacking going around in the past days:
“I must be honest. I feel a lot of pressure but not this type of pressure, if the club decide to sack me,” the Italian manager said after yesterday’s last minute win against Watford.
“Honestly I will never be worried for this. Never. The pressure is I want for my players and to give satisfaction for my fans. I feel this type of pressure.
“When I go to my house I am happy because I know I am putting 150 per cent for my club and my players are doing the same.
Conte explained why the team are going through this negative moment:
“The confidence is not high for the players. I think to overcome this type of moment, it makes you stronger.
“I think today when we were at 2-1 down it was a very difficult moment. Maybe the worst moment for us. To come back it was important.
“It means these players have great heart, a great desire to not accept these situations.”
