Chelsea fans have changed their tune and now want Conte to stay

Last month, their season looked like petering out; with Spurs and Liverpool seemingly opening up an unassailable lead in the race for the top four, even beating Southampton to reach the FA Cup final was in the balance.

That good run of form – and possibly a lack of available alternatives – has now caused the Blues’ fanbase to perform the biggest about turn of all.
