Carragher: Chelsea players have given up on Conte

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Chelsea players are fed up with manager Antonio Conte.

Conte is on the brink after defeat at Watford last night.

Carragher believes Conte might have lost the support of his players just as Jose Mourinho had.

He told Sky Sports: "You have to look at again, as we saw with Mourinho, is there now a discord between the players and the manager?

"The players may have let him down and that may be his feeling but to lose to Bournemouth 3-0 and to go to Watford and lose 4-1, for Chelsea that's not good.

"It was a shambles really.

"Watford, even 11 against 11, were by far the better team and should have been a goal or two up.

"Second half Chelsea had a bit of possession but never looked like scoring apart from a piece of brilliance from Eden Hazard.

"However, as soon as Watford stepped they just fell apart at the back and that is nothing that you associate with Conte teams."
