Jamie Carragher: What I really think about Chelsea FC boss Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte lieutenant reveals how punishing Chelsea manager's training sessions are

Morata hasn't featured since Chelsea's FA Cup third round tie against Norwich City on January 17, with the Spanish global due to miss Monday's encounter with West Brom.

Conte and Chiellini/ Zimbio.comThe 33-year-old Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini revealed that his former boss and head coach Antonio Conte (who is now the current coach of Chelsea FC) usually leaves his players dead after training sessions at Juventus.

Asked why Chelsea have struggled so much defensively in Christensen's absence, Conte replied: "I don't know".

"But as you know well in football, and I don't agree, a lot of time the manager or coach depends on the result".

The under-pressure Italian, who called for a public vote of confidence from the club during that period, admitted confidence among his squad is low ahead of Monday's game with bottom club West Brom and knows their form must improve. "The players show me every day they want to overcome this situation", he said. In this case we've had a poor result and for this reason we have to pay great attention. "We have to work, we have concentrate on getting three points".

And Conte has now given Chelsea's players three days off to recover after the Watford defeat.

"They deserve the best and with my players we are looking to give them the best".

The former Juventus and Italy boss has come under fire this season, following an nearly non-existent Premier League title defence, which has seen the Blues slump to six defeats and sit in fourth place. Against Watford the performance was negative from the start and we didn't create chances.

Chelsea, however, looked hapless in defence again and lost 4-1, conceding three goals in the final six minutes. Now I think this is not important to say "we could have done this" or "we should have done that".

"I think the most important thing is to understand the situation and understand what your targets are".

Following his red card at Vicarage Road a week ago, Conte will be without Tiemoue Bakayoko but based on recent performances, that may be a blessing. Not simple. But my task is to try to help him, but not only him: every single player.
