Chelsea star Eden Hazard sends fierce Champions League warning to team-mates

Chelsea star Eden Hazard sends fierce Champions League warning to team-mates

But publicly at least, Conte, whose side face Southampton on Saturday, insists no decision has been taken.

The 52-year-old Blanc, started his playing career in the 1983/84 season with Montpellier.

"When you have this type of season you have to share this responsibility". The Blues are now fifth in the league table, out of the Champions League spots with only the FA Cup left to play for.

With Chelsea in bad form, having picked one point from their last two home games against Spurs and West Ham, Southampton may feel they can get something from a historically tough opponent. "Instead we have struggled a lot, for many reasons". Two years ago [in 2015-16, when Chelsea finished 10th in the Premier League], this happened the same. But I wanted to play with my team-mates, for the club and the fans.

"It is hard, very difficult, but it is possible", he told Sky Sports.

"I think this is not my job to answer this type of question", Conte told reporters in Friday's pre-match news conference ahead of the trip to Southampton.

"Everyone has to find the right concentration, the right will, the right desire to finish the season as strongly as possible".

The Hammers, if they survive to fight another season in the top division - which they should, given their current six-point cushion with six games to go - have plenty of rebuilding, rethinking, restructuring to do this summer.

But now, less than a year later, he is a dead man walking in east London and could even be just one game away from the sack after a run of games that eerily mirrors Jose Mourinho's final matches in charge at Stamford Bridge.

At the time, UEFA said they too were looking into the alleged incidents, with fans posting videos on social media around Chelsea's 3-0 defeat.

"It is always hard to go into a second season after you have won the Premier League", said Hughes, whose side are three points adrift of safety with six games to play.

The Saints were blown away by a wounded West Ham side a fortnight ago and they were 3-0 down by the interval but they'll feel hard done by not to have left the Emirates with a point, after Danny Welbeck grabbed the victor in the 81st minute.
