Frank Leboeuf believes Chelsea stars and Antonio Conte have packed it in to hurry up Italian's departure: 'It is a lack of respect for the fans and the club'

Chelsea need to beat West Ham to keep their faint hopes of a top-four finish alive.

Chelsea head into today's Premier League meeting with fellow Londoners West Ham United desperate to reverse a dismal run of five defeats in their last seven games.

Last Sunday's 3-1 defeat by fourth-placed Tottenham left Chelsea eight points off the qualification places before this week's round of Premier League matches.

West Ham possible XI: Hart, Rice, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Zabaleta, Kouyate, Noble, Masuaku, Antonio, Arnautovic, Joao.

Chelsea perfectly paid their tribute off the field to their former captain and twice assistant manager, who died on Wednesday aged just 61 after a cardiac arrest. "One year you win the league, the next it's a mess". This game is our season, it is a pity because we dominated the game and created many chances to score.

Such a season has seen Conte's long-term status at Stamford Bridge come under intense scrutiny, with Vialli speaking about the situation on Sky Sport Italia.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been deeply hurt by the Blues' disastrous title defence and admits that a season fraught with difficulties has given him sleepless nights.

"We are not clinical and then we concede two shots and concede a goal". We have to try to do our best in every game.

"We have to improve, we must win this game".

"I understand because he is now a journalist and he has to give news, to try to speak about my situation", the Italian said. It's very difficult for me but since this season I'm listening to a lot of speculation about my future. but the only truth is I am committed for this club, I have a contract for this club, I'm working very hard for this club. A corner in the final minute, you risk losing the win. "We are talking about a really good person". Edmilson offers far more than Hernandez in the middle of the pitch, but the Mexican provides obvious goal threat - and he only needed one chance, sweeping the ball home right-footed with typical composure to level the proceedings.

Victor Moses' cross bounced around the West Ham area before falling to the feet of Azpilicueta, who could not miss from a couple of yards out.
