Chelsea Fans React To Antonio Conte's Brave Post-Match Watford Decision

Belgium midfielder Hazard accepts it has been a testing season for the Blues, who nevertheless remain in the top four of the Premier League, are through to the FA Cup fifth round and will soon face Barcelona in their Champions League last-16 tie.

"But, I repeat, in my life when I was a player, I was captain of Juventus and never, ever, did I speak about a coach with my club".

Getty ImagesAlthough the players are not doing much on the pitch to help Conte's cause, they have his back in the locker room. "But it hurts a lot when you come off after a performance like that". However, that did little to stem Watford's tide and they went in front when Thibaut Courtois brought down Deulofeu.

"Antonio Conte's long tough training sessions at an arduous part of the season, and a hard-line approach to certain players, have become major issues for some of the Chelsea squad".

"We are not used to playing this way".

"We believe in him and we believe in our team. It is hard to win every year", Hazard said to ESPN FC. I just think he's reached a point where he perhaps wants to go - he may not ask though and will just leave it to the club. Though he is the prime candidate to replace Conte at Chelsea, Enrique has stated that he will not accept the job mainly because of the unavailability of his close workers. You sometimes need personnel in the middle who are not always liked unfortunately and have to say what needs to be said.

On the same prospect after Watford beat the Blues, Rooney added: "I [still] think they will".

Antonio Conte will not be leaving Chelsea football club voluntarily.

Now they have to play their next match against West Brom on 12 February at Stam Ford Bridge, where they will try to retain his consistent performance and will try to forget about their past defeats.

One UK newspaper reported Conte would be sacked if his side followed a 3-0 humiliation at home to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Wednesday with another loss to Watford.

Chelsea's patience with Conte could change rapidly if club owner Roman Abramovich has a change of heart, but it seems that the manager's uneasy relationship with Stanford Bridge chiefs has not yet reached breaking point. It's another big decision.
