Antonio Conte Waiting To Be Sacked By Chelsea - Dennis Wise

Antonio Conte Waiting To Be Sacked By Chelsea - Dennis Wise

It is no secret that Antonio Conte is a man under pressure after a disappointing season at Chelsea, and he is expected to be relieved of his duties at the end of the season.

It was only after Giroud's introduction in the 61st minute that Chelsea took charge, as the France global scored twice either side of an emphatic Eden Hazard finish to wrap up an unlikely victory and leave Southampton languishing in the bottom three.

The French worldwide striker has largely struggled to make an impact since his deadline day move from Arsenal in January, putting his place at the World Cup at risk.

"I think this is not my job to answer this type of question", Conte told reporters, according to FourFourTwo.

Antonio Conte has denied that his players are struggling for motivation with a top four finish looking unlikely and he has called on the group to play for the shirt, rather than to play just for him.

The Nigeria global was thrown into the game in the 86th in place of Eden Hazard at a time when both teams were cautiously playing to see off regulation time. A 2-0 lead late in the second half, quickly fell apart as Chelsea came from behind to secure a 3-2 victory away from home. "We have never commented about the negative refereeing decisions, especially after the game".

Next up is a trip to Burnley on Thursday before a return date with Southampton, at Wembley on Sunday in the Fa Cup semi-final.


Southampton had got off to a flawless start thanks to a former Chelsea player as Ryan Bertrand burst past Cesar Azpilicueta before squaring for Tadic to apply a simple finish. "We didn't show great spirit, desire, will to fight to win this game".

He barely managed to get a pass off to his right in the Chelsea box, finding Dusan Tadic for the game's first score. If you don't have something in your heart, it's very hard to come back and win.

The Saints, in desperate search of points, went 2-0 up by the 60th minute and looked well set to earn all three points to pick themselves up from the relegation zone.

When Gary Cahill failed to cut out Ward-Prowse's whipped free-kick, league debutant Bednarek nipped in at the far post to slide home and double Saints' lead.

After a toothless performance from Alvaro Morata, Giroud's introduction was exactly the injection of life that we needed.

He did eventually threaten just before the half-hour mark, heading over from close range, but at that stage Chelsea had already been trailing for six minutes.
