Despite suffering a shameful 4-1 defeat to Watford in an English Premier League clash on Monday, manager Antonio Conte will remain as the Blues’ boss, at least for now.

Sources at Stamford Bridge point to the fact that Chelsea remain in the top four, and are still in the Champions League and FA Cup, as reason not to make a change at the present time, BBC Sport reports.

But the painful part is that Chelsea has only won two out of ten matches played in 2018.

The loss against Watford made it three consecutive defeats for the side, their first since 1995.

Chelsea therefore has a huge task ahead of them in the coming days.

They host West Brom in the EPL on Monday and Championship side Hull City in the FA Cup fifth round on 16 February, before a run of games that includes two European ties against Barcelona, a trip to Manchester United and a visit to league leaders Manchester City.

For victories in these matches, captain Gary Cahill has called on the players to look into the mirror.

"Whatever is decided, the players have to take responsibility," Cahill said while defending Conte.

"The manager has done an absolutely unbelievable job."
