Antonio Conte won't be sacked as Chelsea manager in the short term at least after being granted a stay of execution by Roman Abramovich, according to reports last night.

Conte's future with the troubled Premier League champions was cast into doubt on Monday after a dismal 4-1 defeat against Watford.

But widespread reports in the British media claimed former Juventus and Italy manager Conte is now expected to remain in charge for Monday's game against West Bromwich Albion.
