Eden Hazard has insisted that he and his Chelsea FC team-mates stand united behind Antonio Conte.

The Italian manager has found himself under pressure this season following the Blues’ stuttering form in the Premier League after they won the title in his first campaign in charge last term.

The west London side are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table as they look to at least finish in the top four in the top flight.

Conte’s side were also dumped out of the League Cup by Arsenal back in January and there has been growing speculation about the Italian’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge.

However, despite the rumours of discontent in the media, Hazard has insisted that he and his team-mates are fully behind their manager.

Speaking at a news conference before the clash with FC Barcelona on Tuesday night in the Champions League, Hazard said: “We win together, we lose together.

“I don’t sense there’s any player who’s not with the coach.

“Everyone is behind him. All we want is to climb the table. We will see what happens after.”

Chelsea FC will now switch their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their crunch clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The west London side will be looking for a positive result against Jose Mourinho’s men to boost their top four hopes.

The Blues have won the Premier League title in two of the last three seasons.
