As pressure mounts on Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, one of his former charges, Giorgio Chiellini, has been providing an insight into what it's like to play for the Italian tactician.

Morata, who joined Chelsea last summer for big money, has been out of action since the end of last month due to a niggling back injury and has missed their last four games in all competitions.

In spite of the fact that Conte delivered the Premier League trophy to Chelsea just last season, the Blues boss is now the bookmakers' favourite to be the next top flight manager to be sacked.

"We changed a couple of things, we lost players, we brought some new ones and every year is different", Hazard added.

"I don't know. It happened in the last two games", said Conte. I don't know how long he needs. "I will see bits and check the scores but I can't imagine sitting at the TV to watch the World Cup at home", he said.

"But Christensen is an important player for us".

The Gunners' hierarchy will take into consideration Enrique at the end of the season, as they prepare for life without Arsene Wenger.

Merson has declared that should he lose his job at Chelsea, Antonio Conte is the man to take over the reigns at the Emirates Stadium. "I'm not thinking for one moment about the possibility of going away from this club", he said.

"But, as you know very well because we are talking about football, a lot of times - and I don't agree with this - [the future of] the manager and the coach depends on the results".

Conte, who guided Chelsea to the Premier League title in his his first season in charge, said: "For sure I have to tell thanks to the fans". In this case, we are having poor results.

"What is happening is that we won last season and now people want us to win again", the Belgium worldwide said in an interview with Marca.
