The majority of Chelsea fans are STILL backing Antonio Conte, despite witnessing two of the worst performances of the Roman Abramovich era in back-to-back Premier League games.
The Premier League champions fell to a 3-0 defeat against AFC Bournemouth last Wednesday. We all hoped that it was merely a bump in the road and the Blues would be able to bounce back against Watford on Monday night. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be, and the Hornets defeated us 4-1.
Conte’s head is on the chopping block. The pressure is mounting and it is difficult to see how the Italian can survive this. Abramovich has a big decision to make – cut ties with Conte now or give him until the summer to turn it around. If history’s anything to go by, that might not be such a difficult decision for the Russian.
Abramovich may well be ready to swing the axe, but the majority of Chelsea fans are still backing Conte. We ran a poll on our Twitter account which over 2,000 fans voted in. ‘Conte IN’ is narrowly in the lead, have your say below.
We ran this poll after the Bournemouth game, we think there might be a different result now…
