The knives have been out many times for Chelsea manager Antonio Conte this season.
Fans have bashed the Italian coach on social media following unsavoury results.
A large number urged Conte to be sacked after the team were beaten 3-0 by Newcastle United on the final day of the season.
Chelsea knew that wins over Huddersfield and Newcastle in their last two fixtures of the Premier League campaign would give them a chance of finishing inside the top four.
However, the team picked up just one point from a possible six, which left them fifth in the standings.
Their season has been a far cry from the 2016-17 campaign when they romped to the title in Conte’s first year in charge.
Due to the club’s failure to defend their crown, questions have been raised over the longevity of the manager’s role at Stamford Bridge.
Despite the failed league campaign, Chelsea ended the season with silverware as they defeated Manchester United 1-0 in the FA Cup final.
Eden Hazard was the difference as he netted from the penalty spot in the first half.
After the match, Conte discussed his future, but it did not sound too promising as he told the BBC that he will “respect” whatever decision the club’s board make.
Chelsea fans have now changed their tune, and want the former Juventus boss, who has won four league titles in his management career, to stay put.

I really think Conte should stay.
All he needs is the club to back him in the transfer window. They must give him the players he wants.

Interesting that most of the players turned their backs on Conte, none of them seemed to want to celebrate with him. Also a couple of players wouldn't give clear answers when asked if they wanted Conte to stay. Very telling. #CFC

If Conte and the board room can start working together to bring in the correct transfer targets and not supplying our rivals with our talent then I'm more than happy for Antonio to stay at this club. Unfortunately it looks like we may have seen the last time. #CFC

I really want Conte to stay but unfortunately looks certain he's on his way out. 2 Trophies is 2 seasons from where we were in May 2016 #cfc

Even when Conte gets the sack by next week, it's tough to see. Wish he could stay like he wants to.. #CFC
