Antonio Conte believes he is doing a great job at Chelsea, but fears for their top four spot, after the 3-0 loss to Bournemouth.
Chelsea have not set a pace at all this season, with their recent loss seeing them drop 18 points behind.
Goals from Calum Wilson, Junior Stanislas and Nathan Ake secured all three points for Howe’s team. And Conte is adamant he is doing a great job.
He told reporters: “I think the pressure is normal. It’s normal for a coach, for a manager. It’s normal if you are Chelsea’s coach.
“After the first game this season [a home defeat to Burnley], you tried to put pressure on my job but I’m trying to do my best.
“I repeat: we are doing everything, we are doing 120 per cent. I’m exploiting this squad to the maximum level but if someone doesn’t agree about this, I’m here.
“I have to accept every situation. I’m very relaxed about this. I know that I’m doing a great job, a great work, me and the staff and the players.”
