Antonio Conte dismissed the speculation over his own future after Chelsea beat West Brom in the Premier League.

Speculation has reigned over the Italian’s future as Chelsea have struggled to defend their Premier League crown this season.

However, following the 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge, Conte was defiant.

“We are getting used with the speculation,” he told Sky Sports. “My players know very well what our work is and what we have to do.

“For sure we are going to try to fight against this speculation. There is only one way, to win and play good football.

“I think until the end we continue to live with this speculation. For me it is not important.”

On the game itself, which saw Chelsea move back into the top four, Conte added: “I think tonight was very important for us to get three points and win the game, especially for confidence. When you lose in a bad way two game’s the confidence goes down.

“It was important for the players to have a couple of days to rest and tonight is a good win.

“We started the game with not a lot of confidence and made a couple of mistakes. West Brom could have scored. Then I think when we scored we controlled, dominated and had many chances. It’s important to go through this bad moment but the most important is to get the win.

“Now we have the FA Cup on Friday and want to go through to the next round, then Barcelona. It will be important to find the right confidence.”
