Chelsea boss Conte grants his players three days off

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has granted his players three days off after their humiliation at Watford.

Conte, whose position as manager is under increasing threat, has responded by giving his players a rare opportunity to rest.

Their next game is against West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Monday night and the Italian believes fatigue is playing a major part in the team's drop in standards.

The London Evening Standard says Conte had originally pencilled in for Tuesday to be their only break before resuming training on Wednesday.

However, he has had a change of heart and granted his squad another 48 hours leave.
