Chelsea FC have miserably fallen today against the Premier League side, Watford FC, after their terrible performance where Chelsea conceded three goals in just eight minutes, and four goals in a single match.
According to the English journal, Express, Antonio Conte’s future was depending on the result of the match against Watford FC, and the result against Watford FC today clearly shows what directly Antonio Conte is going, and he seems he is on the way outside of the Stamford Bridge and he played the last match with Chelsea FC as a manager.
Chelsea today seemed very lost, misplaced passes, no organization, no tactics, reckless tackles, silly mistakes, and everything that shows Antonio Conte lost the dressing room.
The Express suggested that Antonio Conte’s future will be decided after this match, which means that the statement by Chelsea to sack the Italian manager may be released in the coming few minutes or hours if this match was really the decisive match as the Express described it.
Chelsea today lost two players through an injury, Pedro Rodriguez, and Tiemoue Bakayoko who received an early red card in the 30th minutes after two yellow cards within five minutes only.
This means that Antonio Conte, if he stays at Chelsea, will be suffering without key players and the main test will be in the Champions League against Barcelona FC at the Stamford Bridge and then away from home where so far Chelsea is suffering from four main injuries which are Andreas Christenson, Pedro Rodriguez who was a Barcelona player before he signs for Chelsea back in 2015, Danny Drinkwater, and the most important player, Alvaro Morata, who was a Real Madrid player previously.
Alvaro Morata was one of the key players for Chelsea at the beginning of the Season, but then his performance and form dropped dramatically to have a goal drought and fail to secure and was missing plenty of chances in every match he plays in.
All those issues may make Antonio Conte’s mission impossible against Barcelona if he stays where Barcelona are going through a good form.
