Chelsea are into the final of the FA Cup and Tottenham’s faltering form means they also have an outside chance of making it into the top four after a season of struggle.
The campaign has seen Antonio Conte come under fire from all angles and it has almost been a case of waiting for the Italian to get the chop throughout.
Yet, there are signs that the tide might be turning. According to ESPN, there has been a swell of support for the former Juventus manager recently, especially in the wake of that 2-0 win against Southampton at Wembley on Sunday.
In response, not all Blues fans were convinced. Some clearly can’t get over the season of underachievement which has seen a second putrid title defence in three seasons but others have put their neck on the block and defended the manager.
We’ve taken a closer look at the best of the reaction as there is the feeling that Conte is winning back at least some of the supporters…
Not too late ! Make him sign a new contract. This changing coach mentality has to change if not then this cycle will go on forever.

too late i support! cos he got no tactics mentality, no cordial relationship with players like jurgen klopp, can't study opponent to know their weakness, can't change playing formation, stubborn,only believe in his own idea, too bossy,don't like correction.

Honestly, reaching the FA Cup Final or even winning it won't change things unless Chelsea by a miracle finishes top 4 on the EPL table.

I've wanted him at the club since a while but have to admit his time is up. No excuses for being unable to win even a game against arsenal this season
