Antonio Conte can't escape blame for Chelsea woes, he's not changed enough

  • Chelsea boss Antonio Conte 'can't wait to leave' Stamford Bridge with 'PSG and Italy' leading race, says Gianluca Vialli

The story of Chelsea's season played out over 94 minutes in a 3-1 defeat against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The result - Tottenham's first league victory Stamford Bridge since 1990 - opened up an eight-point gap on the fifth-placed Blues.

Meanwhile, When asked if being dropped by England affected him, Spurs boss Pochettino replied: "Dele would not have been affected". And with the kind of money Chelsea have, they would have definitely brought the required players for Conte at any cost. We have to help him win the trust and confidence of the national manager.

"I think if he'd gone through this season, finished fifth and things had not quite gone for him, if they'd remained competitive, I would have said that's not such a problem".

Pochettino believes that Alli, who scored 22 goals last season, has just become a victim of his own success at just 21 years old.

Transition was inevitable from the moment that Diego Costa forced a return to Atletico Madrid last summer and Nemanja Matic was granted the exit (to Manchester United) he had desired for the best part of a year. "He's only 21. Sometimes, the expectation is too much". And it was even more impressive as it came from behind as a huge error from captain Hugo Lloris gifted Alvaro Morata the opening goal.

If we don't vote out NRA-funded politicians standing in the way of common-sense gun safety legislation, the Second Amendment may be in danger.

Christan Eriksen's sublime long-range strike drew Tottenham level in first-half stoppage time. We are working very hard to try to have a good season, but I think that, in the end, we are deserving of this season.

Quite the defeatist attitude from the man who is normally so fiery, the end is approaching it would seem for Conte and Chelsea after not even two years in charge.

"[This season] Champions League football's a must, and we're in a great position".

He may have distanced himself from the decision-making process, but the club hierarchy are not in turn happy with the Italian's strategy to point fingers at others.

"No, I'm not anxious".

"But it's the idea of complaining about the lack of support in the transfer market, saying the players they signed aren't quite as good as they should be, I don't like that".
