Antonio Conte's job could be on the line tonight

Reports claim Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will be sacked if they lose their Premier League match against Watford at Vicarage Road.

Owner Roman Abramovich is said to be lining up former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique to take over at Stamford Bridge.

Conte says he would like the club to make a public statement of support, but insists he is not fazed by the uncertainty.

"It does not affect me but also because I think that maybe - and I hope - that they are starting to know me well," Conte said ahead of tonight's match.

Kick off at Vicarage Road is at 8 o'clock.
