Conte has also taken his foul mood out on members of Chelsea's coaching staff.

Despite the pressure intensifying on Conte, Azpilicueta backed Chelsea to refocus ahead of a UEFA Champions League last-16 clash with Barcelona, the first leg of which is at Stamford Bridge on 21 February.

Antonio Conte's hours at Chelsea seem to be numbered.

However Breen thinks the players aren't entirely blameless in the affair, saying the "infuriating way they downed tools for Jose Mourinho" could easily happen again.

It is said Conte chose to blast individual players in front of their team-mates in something he has never done before during his time in the job. That was the second game of a campaign which ended in Premier League glory for the Blues but, like those goalscorers last August, Chelsea's hopes of retaining their crown are gone. "Otherwise they can take their decision". I go to sleep without a problem. But, I repeat, in my life when I was a player, I was captain of Juventus and never, ever, did I speak about a coach with my club.

"In this relationship battle there is only one victor, and he is calling for backing from the board, but I don't think he is going to get it". He spent three years in charge of the Catalan club, winning two LaLiga titles and the Champions League.
