Chelsea's official Twitter account 'likes' strange tweet about Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte had a lot to answer for following Chelsea's 0-0 draw against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Nothing summed up the Blues' performance better than the fact they attempted 17 shots at goal but couldn't find a way past Kasper Schmeichel.

Alvaro Morata and co. were desperately poor in front of goal and Conte explained in his post-match press conference how everyone was to blame.

"I think the problem is for the team, not only for Morata," he said. "Compared to last season we are conceding less and showing more solidity, but we haven’t had great quality in our finishing.

"A lot of time defenders have had chances to score but didn't take them. We have to try to improve in this aspect. We have to improve our quality in the last step."

Conte was also asked about replacing Eden Hazard in the 58th minute, despite the Belgian being Chelsea's best player going forward.

According to the Italian, he could see Hazard was tired and thought adding some "fresh energy" would help his side win the game - but it didn't.

Some Chelsea fans are now starting to question Conte's management and whether he's the right man for the job going forward.

And by the looks of it, even the guys in charge of Chelsea's official Twitter account have their doubts about Conte.

Football fans noticed on Saturday evening how Chelsea have 'liked' a tweet from snooker's Neil Robertson comparing this season under Conte to the 2010/11 term under Carlo Ancelotti.




Make of that what you will. Either Chelsea's social media team have made a big mistake or something is genuinely brewing at Stamford Bridge.

Conte's future has been a subject of interest recently and earlier this week he said "anything is possible" when asked if he will stay on as Chelsea manager.

"I have another year of [my] contract with this club," said the Italian, "but as you know very well everything is possible.

"In one moment you stay here, in another moment another person replaces you in your job."
