The pressure had been growing on the Italian after two defeats on the bounce but a 3-0 win over the rock-bottom club has helped ease the pressure, and Conte knows the importance of such a result.

The Blues are back in action at Stamford Bridge on Friday night when they take on Hull in the fifth round of the FA Cup and to go into that game with a win was crucial for the manager.

He said: 'It was important to get three points, especially after two defeats. The two bad defeats brought our confidence down and it was important to win and score three goals and keep a clean sheet.

'To lose two games in a row in the league you feel confidence is going down. At the same time we have to try and avoid these situations and play our football.

'We have to try and face this situation and be men and overcome this situation.'
