Antonio Conte insists Chelsea must be worried about finishing in the top four following a humiliating 3-0 defeat against Bournemouth on Wednesday evening. Conte's toothless side were picked apart in 16 staggering second-half minutes at Stamford Bridge as Callum Wilson, Junior Stanislas and former Blues defender Nathan Ake all scored to stun the Blues.

The remarkable result saw the Blues drop to fourth — behind Liverpool on goal difference — and just two points clear of rivals Tottenham following their comprehensive win against Man United. "We must be worried [about finishing in the top four]," Conte said. "It will not be easy. I am repeating what I have said since the start of the season.

"We have to fight. We must be prepared to fight and we must be ready. "I think the players are starting to understand that this season we are going to struggle for a position in the Champions League."
