GETTYAlvaro Morata admits he could return to Real Madrid in the future

Alvaro Morata

There are a lot of rumours and speculation, despite what we are doing we are keeping our expectations.

"I don't think anyone trusted in us to win the title this season". There were two teams fighting for the title, both from Manchester.

"Now we restarted to work in the way that we know".

Conte laughed at a suggestion that he should stop improving his players and replied: 'You are not the first person to tell me this'.

"There are other top managers like Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus, but he might come in and it would take him a year to get used to the Premier League - like it did with Klopp".

Alvaro Morata is still out injured, so we could see Olivier Giroud getting his first start for the club in the Premier League.

Antonio Conte hasn't lost three consecutive league games as manager since November 2009, when he was with Atalanta in Serie A.

"My task is this and, for this, I'm very good".

Speaking after the game, Conte referred to acknowledging mistakes and taking responsibility, but it's perhaps most telling that he was referring to the players being confused and not reacting well to either the equalizer, or the Watford goals.

"We are still in the FA Cup and reached the Carabao Cup semi-finals".

Those defeats, compounded by the nature of the performances, have left Conte's future as head coach in serious doubt ahead of Monday's match against West Brom. "But maybe we are increasing the difficulty of this team [recovering]". As you know very well, my contract expires in 2019. In my hand, there is the will.

Meanwhile, their opponents on Monday are four points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League table but West Brom will be looking to cause a huge upset and boost their bid for survival.

"This is my opinion". I usually have a great respect'.

Conte added, "I'm not thinking for only one moment of the possibility of going away from this club".

"This question is about the players?" "For sure, when you play every three days, it's impossible to work on the physical aspects". 'The job he did previous year was absolutely outstanding and I don't think he's changed too much.

Chelsea have recently been given time off, with Conte allowing the players a three-day break instead of the usual one day after the Watford defeat.

"At the same time, you can trust in a coach and his work and continue with him even if you don't win, and try and build something important".
