Antonio Conte predicts Chelsea FC v West Ham

09 April 2018

During that run, they have crashed out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage, beaten over two legs by a much-fancied Barcelona side, but FA Cup glory could be a potential silver lining in an otherwise disappointing season, as the Blues are into the last four of that competition.

But Conte, who's been linked with the Italy national team job this month, brushed off the comments of the former Azzurri striker ahead of their London Derby against West Ham United on Sunday.

Chelsea remain fifth on 57 points and are now 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the league table. Joe Hart and Javier Hernandez reflect on West Ham's resurgence at Chelsea, Chicharito's impressive goalscoring record against the Blues and more. "It was a really big win for us (against Chelsea), for the team, for the club, it gave us all a boost".

David Moyes's men conceded a whopping 11 goals in the three matches preceding that one, a tally that has contributed to them having the second-worst defence in the division.

Either Chelsea could have done what Chelsea have a habit of doing when games have little effect: shutting down and switching off, conserving their energy for next week's FA Cup semifinal against Southampton.

"We dominated the game and created many, many chances to score but we didn't and that explains our season".

The team of Shayna Jack, Bronte Campbell, Emma McKeon and Cate Campbell went 0.60 seconds under Australia's previous world record set at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is being let down by his players this season, according to former defender Frank Leboeuf, who also believes the manager has already given up.

Such a season has seen Conte's long-term status at Stamford Bridge come under intense scrutiny, with Vialli speaking about the situation on Sky Sport Italia. A good performance, yes, but many times we have had a good performance and lost the game, or drew the game, many times we've had a good performance but not won the game.

'We must be frustrated for this game and the final result.

"Otherwise, if we accept this result and say we were unlucky today, we are not building anything positive for the future", he said. "I'm very frustrated and I hope my players go home and stay frustrated because, in this way, we have the right mentality".

And in the 73rd minute Marko Arnautovic collected Gary Cahill's weak headed clearance and cut the ball back for Hernandez to slot home.
