Conte's future in doubt as Chelsea face top-four woe

Share

Chelsea go into their final match of the Premier League campaign two points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool in the final Champions League qualification spot, meaning they are in danger of missing out.

Newcastle deservedly ended a run of four successive defeats under former Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez to earn a top-10 finish.

"They'll obviously start by believing they can still get there, but if news comes through of Liverpool beating Brighton, then this game - prize-wise - becomes more important to Newcastle than the FA Cup finalists".

"Last season, after a 10th place we won [the title]".

Internal boardroom wrangles and the failure in recruiting the right players for the manager has fuelled speculations of Conte's departure.

Conte is now, however, thinking about his position at the club.

The west Londoners are unbeaten in the league since losing 3-1 to Tottenham on April 1, having won four of their next six matches to remain in the hunt for the final Champions League spot.

"It can happen. In the past, it happened".

"Don't forget two years ago they finish the season tenth, not in any finals and were eliminated in the last 16 [of the Champions League] against Paris Saint-Germain - it can happen".

The Reds have won the Champions League title in 2005 thanks to a penalty shootout victory over AC Milan.

Antonio Conte has told his Chelsea players that they "don't have a chance" of beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final if they do not improve after their 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday.

"This is the best league in the world and to compete with so many teams and clubs that are very strong, it is always a great chance that you have". Given the turnover at Chelsea who would rule out Conte one day returning to Stamford Bridge while it is not beyond the realms of possibility that another previous manager, Carlo Ancelotti, might replace him this summer. "Since the start of the first game, I think. the time I start listening to the speculation about me, this is the moment I start to be anxious".

And Conte, who rested Eden Hazard and was without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois due to a back injury, accepts a top-four finish will now be hard for Chelsea.
