Antonio Conte and Chelsea starting to suffer from demanding schedule

Barkley close to being ready for Chelsea debut says Conte

Current incumbent Conte became gaffer number 10 in the summer of 2016, and in his debut season the former Italy boss cruised to Premier League glory, accumulating a record-smashing 30 wins from 38 games. Now I am fully committed for Chelsea, in this job, to work with my players and to try also to improve the club in the football aspect.

The two Premier League managers, Conte and Mourinho, have been exchanging insults throughout the 2017/18 season, with both until now showing no signs of slowing down.

On the negative side, while Antonio Conte's squad have remained relatively unscathed by injury there is a creeping sense of unease among Chelsea supporters that the lack of respite is starting to affect the Blues boss and his players.

Conte branded Mourinho a "little man" after Chelsea's goalless FA Cup third-round draw at Norwich on Saturday.

"They're completely out of their minds", said former Real Madrid manager Capello, who is now coaching in China with Jiangsu Suning.

But the 48-year-old has cut a frustrated figure at Stamford Bridge this season and there have been widespread reports of unrest behind the scenes.

Last month, a date appeared to be set: Trump would head to London at the end of February for the opening of the new US embassy. Wanted me to cut ribbon - NO!' British opposition politicians said Trump was not welcome in the U.K.

Conte's position has been the subject of speculation regarding a rumoured frustration over transfers.

Asked whether the Blues had discussed Vardy, Conte responded: 'No, honestly we didn't speak about him, but I repeat we are talking about a really good player.

Blaming the conflict on personal issues rather than professional, Conte said to BBC Sport: "This is not a problem from the club, it is a problem between me and him".

"Football is this, our job is very hard as you know everything can change a few times".

Leicester have lost 12 of their last 14 games against Chelsea in all competitions, and they are winless in their last 12 away Premier League games against "big six" opposition (W0 D3 L9) - losing each of the last five.

Conte says Chelsea may consider promoting an academy player to allow Kenedy to go on loan, with Newcastle United interested in adding the Brazilian in January.
