Antonio Conte: 'I am totally committed to Chelsea'

The Chelsea head coach has a contract until 2019 but has recently lost 3-0 at home to Bournemouth and 4-1 away to Watford which has dragged the club into a battle for a place in the top four.

Chelsea's game against West Brom on Monday could be pivotal to Conte's future and, after saying everyone at the Blues is responsible for the club's current problems, he acknowledged he has done poorly at landing transfer targets.

On Olivier Giroud, he said, "Giroud is training with us, he's in contention for West Brom for sure". My task is this.

"But I'm afraid that's just the way it is - the top players are always going to go to top clubs". I think in this aspect I can improve a lot. "Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, they all went to Arsenal's rivals because Wenger was sat there in the manager's seat instead of saying the time was right to leave". I can learn a lot in that aspect.

"I don't know how long he will be out and for this reason I'm a bit anxious". "When you have this period of [such] poor results, you have to divide responsibility with me, with the players, with the club". I don't know how long he needs. I am this type of coach.

Morata, who was signed from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window for a whopping £58million plus various add-ons has scored 10 goals in 20 appearances for the club in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old Holland global is one of the best defenders in the Premier League, and snatching him in front of Chelsea's noses is a big win for Jurgen Klopp.

Remaining on the outside, Romero slapped in a right jab. "The Reaper" was elevated to undisputed champion when Georges St. Whittaker was initially meant to fight Rockhold in Perth on Sunday in what would have been his first title defence.

"I have spoken with him", Conte said.

All these gave rise to his earning the Serie A league title three times and landed him the role of the National Coach of Gli Azzurrri.

'We do this job, and you must be open and understand the situation can change. It's the same for me. But I am not jealous or envious of other managers. "We have to work, we have concentrate on getting three points". At the same time, I have great respect for everyone's opinion.

Antonio Conte has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he's provided an update on the latest team and injury news ahead of the game. Andreas Christensen trained alone at Cobham on Friday, but Chelsea remain hopeful he could be fit.

"When you've got one of those at the top of the pitch they're very hard to replace".

"Then, sometimes it can happen, like it did for us last season. You are 100 per cent with him", Chiellini said. While the club insists that it's business as usual and that they have not approached anyone to take up the reins should they axe the Italian, work to identify an interim appointment is well advanced.
