Chelsea captain Cahill: Players responsible for Conte mess; worst I've felt

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill insists the players have let down manager Antonio Conte.

Conte's job is under real threat following a woeful 4-1 defeat at Watford on Monday.

But Cahill said: "Whatever is decided, the players have to take responsibility. The manager has done an absolutely unbelievable job.

"This is the worst I've felt for quite a while. Performance-wise, I didn't recognise us or myself. It was abysmal.

"We just need to keep strong. I've been here before at this club - it's about staying calm. It hurts a lot when you come off after a performance like that."
