One manager is already preparing for life at Chelsea

The defending champions Chelsea have endured a turbulent period on the pitch, losing 4-1 at Watford on Monday, five days after a 3-0 home defeat by Bournemouth, increasing speculation over the future of their Italian coach.

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. The Italian took over from Hiddink in the summer of 2009, and went on to enjoy a stunning first season, leading the Blues to the Premier League and FA Cup glory.

Roman Abramovich is said to have Enrique at the top of his list, and is relieved he'd be, not now in a job elsewhere.

Enrique has since taken some time away from football, stating he needed a year to "recover", but should he be offered the chance to work in the Premier League he'd be wise to consider it. "Every week there are three games". You have to look at the last two results - losing at home to Bournemouth and then to Watford - you'd be anxious within the club that the way Conte is feeling is being transmitted to the players and could begin a downward spiral.

"We believe in him and we believe in our team", he said. That's why football is special. 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.

There's no way to predict exactly how the Galaxy S8 Oreo update will treat your device so it's important to prepare ahead of time. The update has now been rolled out only in Germany region but it is expected to roll out in other countries in future as well.

Chelsea may be struggling this season and with the board on the look-out for a new manager, they can omit the possibility of luring Spaniard Luis Enrique.

Furthermore, according to the French news source, Le10Sport, Enrique has already stipulated who he'd like the London club to make as their first signing.

Current Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde, however, can not see why Conte is facing such speculation, given his achievements after arriving at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2016.

That might lead outsiders to believe that Conte has been given a stay of execution, as Chelsea's temperamental and oft-meddlesome owner, Roman Abramovich, hasn't yet fired another manager (less than nine months after lifting the Premier League trophy).

"There is not much to think about".
