Bookies have stopped taking bets on Chelsea sacking Antonio Conte as their manager on Tuesday.

Conte is getting closer to the exit door at Stamford Bridge, following a 4-1 defeat at Watford on Monday night.


The Italian had demanded public backing from the power-brokers at the club, as his struggling team has taken only 12 points from a possible 48.

Chelsea looked lethargic and flat at Vicarage Road, with midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko getting sent off within 30 minutes of the first half.

The heavy defeat saw bookies Paddy Power suspend betting on Conte getting the boot today.

“It is very difficult for me to transfer my thoughts. I hope tonight you understand me, I am not worried about my job. I work every day and give 100%. I am not worried. Every day and every press conference I am asked, but no.

“Tomorrow is another day. My soul is clear and I go to sleep without the problem that maybe I could do this. I try to do everything. If this problem becomes of the club it is okay. Life goes on,” he told reporters afterwards.
