According to a report on The Sun via Metro UK, Roman Abramovich would sack Antonio Conte if Chelsea slip outside the top four and put Champions League qualification at risk.
The report claims Conte narrowly survived the sack after a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford on Monday.
Abramovich is reportedly concerned at missing out on Champions League football and should Chelsea fall outside the qualification spots, Conte’s spell as Chelsea boss could come to an end.
Chelsea have won just two games in 2018 and have conceded seven goals in our last two Premier League games.
Chelsea’s next game is against West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Monday.
