Antonio Conte Man City

Chelsea fans turned on manager Antonio Conte following Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Manchester City at the Etihad – and understandably so.

There were no real expectations for us heading into this game. This Man City side is one of the best that the Premier League has ever seen, we are some distance behind them. However, the manner in which we surrendered without putting up any sort of a fight was utterly disgraceful.

Bernardo Silva gave the home-side the lead less than a minute into the second-half, but it took Chelsea until the final 15 minutes to wake up and look to put any sort of pressure on Pep Guardiola’s side.

We now sit five points outside of the top four, and the Chelsea faithful are utterly fuming. Here’s how Chelsea fans, and the rest of the football world, took to Twitter to criticise Conte following what was a toothless performance:

I think he will be sacked after we lose (hopefully not, but it is so unlikely we win) against Barca.
Conte is managing to be sacked, and is destroying our team in the long term (Hazard and Courtois will never sign extensions).
