How did the Chelsea players perform during their Premier League clash with Tottenham?
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino on his radar.
Chelsea deserve the season they are having and their struggles in the current campaign are down to the departure of experienced players over the past few years, manager Antonio Conte has said.
"No, I'm not anxious", Conte said.
Conte said: "The goal at the end of the first half it wasn't good for us and our confidence".
Conte said: "It is only a problem of time". Our job is totally different. You can do this only if you play important games. "We depend a lot on the result." . "The truth is, Chelsea would like a manager who is more of a club man".
Conte still enjoys the backing of most of Chelsea's supporters, not least for the passion he shows on the touchline.
"I think the performance was good, especially in the first half". I wasn't a calm player.
"This season, probably Manchester City will win the title, but they dropped in the FA Cup". Since then, Chelsea have lost the experience of John Terry, Diego Costa and Branislav Ivanovic.
"I must be honest, if you want to win trophies, maybe for important managers, it's easier to go to another country", the Italian added. For example, Emerson Palmieri. 'Christiansen, is another, Bakayoko and Rudiger. He's a young player with a really good prospect but he needs to improve in many aspects. You can do this only if you play important games. "Otherwise, we continue to stay not so close and, with seven games to go, it will be hard to take a place in the Champions League".
"We have young players that need to make experience and to improve, not only on the pitch, but charisma and personality".
