Chelsea reportedly closing in on Antonio Conte's replacement

Chelsea reportedly closing in on Antonio Conte's replacement

Burnley will still have a number of players unavailable for the clash with last season's champions, however, the Clarets will still feel confident that they can produce a result.

Conte has repeatedly criticised his club's hierarchy this season for what he considers a lack of investment which has undermined their title defence.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte received a surprising phone call on Wednesday during his press conference ahead of the game against Burnley in the Premier League. The 26-year-old New Zealand global is enjoying his best season as a goal-scorer in England's top flight with nine league goals in just 16 starts. They have to play for the club and the fans, to show great character like today. "We must have the desire to try and take this target".

Both Tarkowski and Pope have done well this season and earned their England chances, but they can not afford more nights like this if they are to make Southgate's squad.

Antonio Conte: "For sure we have two important games now, against Burnley and then a semi-final against Southampton.

It's just nice to enjoy this moment now where we're playing well and hopefully we do end the season how we want to finish".

Macron 'probably the EU's last chance,' says Nigel Farage
French President Emmanuel Macron is proposing creating a new tax on the digital economy to help finance the European Union budget. Macron said democracy was the "best chance" for the European Union to fight against rising nationalism on the continent.

Nonetheless, with some supporters even dreaming of Europa League qualification, manager Sean Dyche says a game-by-game approach is what his players focus on.

Conte is widely expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, and he said: "Manchester City is one club that can continue to dominate, to win.

It is more hard when you have to prepare in the transfer market to win something, because only one team wins".

A sixth win in succession against Chelsea would see them overtake Arsene Wenger's side, albeit having played a game more, and with a match at the Emirates still to come. You can play only for this target.

Own-goals. They're an inevitability in football and all you can really do is your best to avoid them ever happening to you.
