Antonio Conte has had his odds on being the next Premier League manager to leave slashed from 25/1 on Wednesday evening, to as short as 6/4 favourite (suspended in places) on Thursday afternoon. Following a tough start to life as a Premier League manager, including humiliating defeats to rivals Arsenal and Liverpool respectively, it appears Roman Abramovich may have already lost patience with the Italian.
Just seven games into the season Chelsea lie in seventh place and find themselves five points off the pace of Premier League leaders Man City. They welcome champions Leicester to Stamford Bridge on Saturday, followed by Jose Mourinho's Man Utd the following week.
The Italian took charge of The Blues at the start of the season, having led Italy to the Euro 2016 quarter-final, before suffering defeat at the hands of the Germans on penalties.
