Antonio Conte insisted he was not worried about his future following Chelsea’s 4-1 loss at Watford.

It was a second successive heavy defeat for Conte’s side and will no doubt increase speculation he could be axed as Blues boss.

However, the Italian declared: “I am not worried about my job. I work every day and give 120%. If this is enough, it’s OK. Otherwise the club can take a different decision. But I am not worried.

“Every press conference: ‘Are you worried about your job?’. No. I am not worried. Tomorrow is another day. I can be the Chelsea coach, or not. Which is the problem?

“My soul is clear. I go to sleep without the problem. I do my job and if this is enough, it’s OK. Otherwise, I go home and I have zero problem to sleep well.”

Chelsea are fourth in the Premier League table, just one point ahead of rivals Tottenham in the battle to secure a Champions League place.

“For sure it is a difficult moment when you lose 3-0 against Bournemouth and then against Watford,” Conte admitted.

“I tried to warn everyone about the difficulty of our path and the difficulty to find a place in the Champions League.

“But now we are facing a lot of difficulty and you can see we performed very bad.”
