Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is under huge pressure at Chelsea with some reports claiming Chelsea would replace Conte as manager at the end of the season.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher insists Conte deserves more respect for the outstanding work he has done at Chelsea over the last 18 months.

When asked if Conte should be given more credit by everyone for his work at Chelsea over the past 18 months, Carragher said on Sky Sports: “There’s no doubt for me. Conte has done a super job.

“His points total since he came to England is only bettered by Pep Guardiola and that says a lot about him as a manager.

“Last season Chelsea blew everyone away. To be so far ahead, not only of the best clubs in the country, but some of the best managers in world football showed what a top manager Conte is.

“It remains to be seen whether you class this season as a success or not. If they can finish in the top four and lift a trophy, that is success, considering how competitive the top six teams are in the Premier League.

“Even if Chelsea only finish in the top four, that’s still been a great two years, in which he’s taken them from 10th – which admittedly was a false position – won the title and given them Champions League football before he goes.”
