Furious Antonio Conte gives Chelsea players the hairdryer

But the Italian, whose side are four points adrift of United in the table, was in no mood to discuss their personal relationship and disputed that Mourinho would be in the mood for the revenge after the Red Devils were beaten 4-0 at Stamford Bridge last term. "We are struggling a lot to find this kind of balance".

"I think Cahill can play on the right or the left, but the best position for me is on the left".

He said to Express Sport: "I think the rumours are just ridiculous". Having focused on winning the one title that evaded him for many years, he finally won the Champions League under Roberto di Matteo, who was sacked months later.

Chelsea players are under pressure - and their manager has been linked with the axe, but former Chelsea player Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has offered his support to the boss and claimed that he should be in the job for as long possible and anyone that says otherwise is wrong.

"He's an opponent and I'm an opponent for him".

The Blues impressed last season as they built towards the Premier League title, but have not been able to replicate that consistency while juggling a return to elite European competition.

Antonio Conte has confirmed that he was visited by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich last Sunday, but described the meeting as "normal".

He added detectives learned she'd been planning the crime for a couple of weeks and had also meant to kill her husband. Hillhouse said Jacob Henderson was not the biological father of the victims and has been cooperating with authorities.

Roman Abramovich has already made a decision to sack the Italian.

"I am used to doing this in my life".

Conte's team are now nine points adrift of league leaders Manchester City, having lost three of their opening 10 games of the season.

Asked how important Sunday's game is for the title race, Conte pointed to the form of Pep Guardiola's side.

"If they continue in this way it will be very hard to fight for the title".
