Changes could be coming at Stamford Bridge, and Antonio Conte would be the pawn to fall at Chelsea if the club continues to trend downward.

The Express is reporting that the Blues could be in the market for a new manager if Monday’s result against Watford doesn’t go in favor of Conte and his side.

Chelsea currently sits fourth place in the Premier League on 50 points, following their bid to win the top flight last season.

The Blues are 19 points behind league leaders Manchester City, who have fallen just once in PL play.

Conte, only in his second season with the London side, has been noticeably fiery about the club’s lack of transfers as of late.

In his year-and-a-half with the club, Conte has won 59 of his 87 matches with the Blues, over 67 percent, which is his best winning percentage with any club or national team previously managed.
