The Italian guided Chelsea to the Premier League title last season, but after a slow start to this campaign, which sees them nine points behind leaders Manchester City, there have been suggestions he could be axed.

Jose Mourinho was axed the season after winning the title, and as similar rumours of unrest in the camp mount once again, it would not be a complete surprise if the axe also fell on Conte.

However, following the 4-2 victory over Watford at the weekend, Conte revealed he is calm with the situation and does not fear for his job.

"I am not like the others , I am different," Conte revealed. "I understand that the club has to evaluate my performances but sincerely I am not worried about getting sacked if I lose a game for example.

"In the past, the management did release a coach after three bad games but I think it depends of the coach and his style of work.

"I am very hard on myself, this is the only real pressure that I feel. Do you feel pressure from the club's management? I don't feel it the same way."
