Antonio Conte insists his commitment is “totally” for Chelsea despite the club’s dip in form.
Chelsea have lost their previous two Premier League games against Bournemouth and Watford respectively, conceding seven goals, and pressure has mounted on Conte as a result.
Conte’s fourth-placed side will come up against West Brom on Monday night, live on Sky Sports, and the Italian has clarified his position at the club.
“I’m not thinking for only one moment of the possibility of going away from this club,” said Conte.
“My commitment and the commitment of my players is totally for this club and we are trying to do our best.
“The manager of a club depends on the result, in this case we’re having a poor result and we have to pay attention.
“We have to try to stop this bad run and try to get three points against West Brom. It won’t be easy because as you know very well, in this type of situation, the confidence is not high but we have to trust in our work and trust in our football to get three points.”
Conte acknowledged his team’s performances in recent weeks have been below the level he expects, and says the players, himself and the club know they need to do more.
“Every single player knows very well our result, and knows very well we have to improve and play better,” Conte added. “Against Watford it was totally negative, our performance.
“We have to divide the responsibility in every positive or negative situation, when you have this period with so poor results you have to divide responsibility with me, with the players, with the club.”
