'Stupid' - Antonio Conte sends out a warning to Chelsea hierarchy

Antonio Conte Arsene Wenger

"I think that I'm the type of coach who, if I have a player who is [a] six, I bring him to an eight", he added.

If Conte fails to secure a response against the Baggies on Monday, he could join the long list of Chelsea managers sacked mid-season under Roman Abramovich. Despite winning the Premier League title and reaching the FA Cup final last season, during his first year in English football, the fiery Italian has been at odds with his club's board about transfer policy over the last two windows.

"My task is to try and improve every single player, in every aspect - in terms of their mentality also".

"And also last season we started behind, and for this reason I think there is too much speculation around this club, around me, and around this team". While Alonso's form has taken a significant dip from previous year, he could still prove to be a handful for the West Brom defence, hence, stopping him could be imperative for Alan Pardew's men.

Defeat for the defending Premier League champions at home to Albion could well spell the end for Conte, who has seen his side win just three of their 10 matches in 2018 and lose two on the spin - both by three-goal margins.

Rounding out the top five, Fox's " The Greatest Showman ", also in its eighth week, added $6.4 million for a cumulative $146.5 million.

Earlier this month, Conte warned that Chelsea must prioritise quality over quantity in the transfer market this summer in order to regain ground on the Manchester clubs, and speaking on Friday he said: "I think I'm a bit of a disaster to convince the club to buy the players".

We played against each other and he's a really good person.

"The way I look at it, you can win but, at the same time, the club might not be happy to stay with you. I have, usually, a great respect [for fellow managers]".

"But you can not fault his record and the job he's done since he came to the Premier League".

Antonio Conte relied on a core of players to get the west London side over the line in the title race last season.
