Chelsea To Sack Conte And Bring In Luiz Enrique Pretty Soon

Carlo Ancelotti was sacked a year after winning a league and cup double.

"I tried to warn everyone about the difficulty of our path in the league and Champions League", said the Italian, whose struggling side faces a tough last-16 tie against Barcelona in Europe's top European club competition later this month.

Who do you think will be the next Blues boss if Conte is fired?

With Chelsea committing players forward, Deulofeu capitalized to lead a counterattack which he started and finished with a well-taken 88th-minute strike.

"They did it with [Andre] Villas-Boas, [Roberto] Di Matteo, [Jose] Mourinho as well".

Watford dominated in front of their home supporters at Vicarage Road and were unlucky when Chelsea equalised eight minutes before the full-time whistle with a curling, 25 yard effort from Belgium Eden Hazard.

Miguel Delaney, writing in The Independent, reports that there is some discontent within the Chelsea squad.

Chelsea players need to shoulder the responsibility for their "abysmal" English Premier League displays in recent weeks and not under-fire manager Antonio Conte, defender Gary Cahill said on Wednesday. They will now report back to Cobham on Friday. "No Diego Costa, no Nemanja Matic - it's been a massive blow to Conte". While David Luiz has rarely played in the past few months, after seemingly falling out with the former Juventus coach.

Conte is understood to be angry with the club's transfer policy which has seen him miss out on the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Virgil van Dijk and Alex Sandro.

Finally, Spanish media outlet Sport claim that Chelsea have opened negotiations with Luis Enrique. Conte immediately responded by replacing Willian with Cesc Fabregas.

Even though Watford seem to be improving under the charge of Javi Gracia, especially after the 4-1 win over Chelsea, there would still be a reason why the club changes made in January are making people concerned. The Italian went on to say he would not lose any sleep over the ongoing, and intense, speculation regarding his future at the club. "We are disappointed with the two results we have had in the last week".

For sure, he can not take the side to the next level that they are aiming for with the current players at his disposal, on the other hand, his defensive setup in the home games as well as his in-game decision making has been nothing but abysmal.
