Roman Abramovich will not allow Chelsea’s disgruntled players to influence his decision on whether or not Antonio Conte should be sacked, according to reports.

The Italian is under mounting pressure after back-to-back defeats against Bournemouth and Watford, shipping seven goals across the two games, and has been sucked back into the top-four battle.

Previous Chelsea managers have lost their jobs in better positions than Conte currently finds himself, with player power costing the likes of Luiz Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas.
