Pic: ReutersLONDON: Chelsea reacted angrily on Friday to newspaper reports that Carlo Ancelotti was set to replace manager Antonio Conte and that former coach Steve Holland has received texts from unhappy players who say they are missing him.

Defeat at the Vitality Stadium would turn up the heat on Chelsea boss Antonio Conte but Eddie Howe reckons it is insane the Italian is under pressure after winning the title last season. They try to create problems between me and the club. I see in the past it happened the same with a lot of managers. "I can accept to write the club are ready to sack me and the story with the players".

"I'm very happy. Tonight he didn't score, but he played very well". "If you want me to do an interview I am ready". "This is incorrect and I hate this type of situation".

"I find him a really enthralling character, someone who is very passionate, he's as passionate away from the touchline", said Howe of Chelsea counterpart Conte.

He explained: "I'm in touch with Carlo as he's my friend".




But Conte, in his pre-match conference for Saturday's English Premier League clash against Bournemouth, gave an update on the player's status, hinting at a longer return date.

That result left them in fourth place in the Premier League table and nine points behind Manchester City in the race for the title this season.

"What I like about him is he might not have an unbelievable game or things don't come off for him but he keeps trying it".

Bournemouth famously beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge two years ago to send Jose Mourinho hurtling towards the sack.

And Hazard seemed to be in high spirits ahead of the game as he posed for a picture with Donald Duck ahead of Chelsea's trip to Bournemouth.
