Tottenham star Dele Alli taunts Chelsea after Stamford Bridge win

That is the verdict of Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville.

Chelsea's season went from bad to worse after their 3-1 defeat to Spurs and Gary Neville has blamed Antonio Conte for it.

Bookmakers are convinced that Conte will have left Stamford Bridge by the start of next season and he is 4/11 not to have left. It is indeed a tough objective to attend as we have fallen eight points below 4th-placed Tottenham but hard work and a bit of luck can certainly help us get Champions League football next season.

Not even the most ardent defender of Antonio Conte would be able to defend the disastrous season that the Blues have had. "Honestly, I think that I'm giving - the players are giving - everything this season".

We thought that Conte could be the man to rival Jose Mourinho's legacy here, but it doesn't appear as though that will now be the case.


"And that's not because we don't want him here, or we don't think he's done a great job, it's just the nature of the job here".

After the final whistle went, Mason took to Twitter to show his support for Alli and tear into his critics, saying: 'Not that you had anything to prove today @deli_official! Chelsea, are struggling to secure a fourth spot in the premier league race, and are most likely to finish outside the top four.

"It has been a successful club over 10 or so years, but in the second seasons, it's never been great".

Chelsea spent big money, but in terms of net spend, they sit a long way behind Manchester City.

Closing the gap off-the-pitch is a job for Marina Granovskaia and the club's office-based staff, but they need to learn from the appointment of Conte and hire the right manager, rather than the best manager next time. For me it was just about helping the team as much as I can and what people say.


"You have to ask the club, not me [about the significance of finishing in the top four]".

"This is our task".

He may have distanced himself from the decision-making process, but the club hierarchy are not in turn happy with the Italian's strategy to point fingers at others.

"I have my opinion but I'm very exhausted of always repeating the same things".
