Five Things to watch out for as Chelsea travel to Bournemouth

Posted October 28, 2017

One report claimed that Chelsea players have contacted Steve Holland, Conte's former No. 2 who is now assistant manager to England boss Gareth Southgate, to express dissatisfaction with the Italian's demands in training.

Conte revealed he also speaks with Ancelotti on a regular basis, but not about the Chelsea manager situation. "I see the past it happened the same with a lot of managers [at Chelsea]".

"Last season was hard for him but it was also hard for me", Conte said.

"Stamford Bridge holds special memories for them and us after the win there in our first season in the Premier League".

"This is lack of respect".

Danny Drinkwater can build on his midweek Chelsea debut when Antonio Conte's side travel to face Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday. It's given me a feel for how they actually play.

"If someone is happy writing this then I can't do anything". I can accept writing that the club is ready to sack me.

'It's not good that this person [Steve Holland] has to send me a message saying this is not true.

"Why put another person in this bull****?" If you want to hit me, hit me!

"I hate this type of situation".

"I can accept that they write the club is ready to sack me, and accept stories with the players, but to use another person in this way is not correct. I don't care what the newspaper writes about my future because this is our job and Carlo is my friend".

Chelsea have not started the season in the same ascension as they showed last season, with defeats to Burnley and Crystal Palace contributing to them being nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Chelsea have been handed a boost with news that N'Golo Kante is "progressing well" although this game may come too soon for him, per Jack Rathborn at the Mirror. "I have great respect for him and he was my coach at Juventus", he added".
