The Blues has suffered back to back defeat to both Bournemouth and Watford respectively – conceding three in the former and four in the latter, and that has made Rooney to suggest that the reigning league champions are in crisis.

The Blues manager though has adduced in recent times that he wanted to stay in Chelsea for the more years has been at loggerheads with the Chelsea Boards over failed transfers last summers.

The transfer melee at the club led to Michael Emenalo, the former Football to resign from his position at the club

And with Conte coming out on numerous occasions to critise the Chelsea Boards, Rooney posited that Conte’s antics might be a conduit to step down from his position at Chelsea.

Rooney believes that there seems to be a ‘big problem’ at the Stamford Bridge as things Conte do say openly are indoors’ discussion.

“Any problem that a team have should be kept behind closed doors,” Rooney said on Monday Night Football.

“It seems like Conte is putting a lot out there. Whether that is because he wants to find a way out because he isn’t getting what he wants, we don’t know.

“There seems to be big problem.”

Meanwhile, fellow English International and former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher said Chelsea’s display against Watford was the Worst performance from the club in 15 years.

Chelsea’s cause to bounce back from 3-0 defeat to Bornemouth was shattered when Tiemoue Bakayoko received his marching orders for his second bookable offence inside half an hour.

Troy Deeney’s opener from the penalty spot was cancelled by Eden Hazard but goals from Daryl Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu, and Robert Pereyra respectively in the dying minutes of the game ensured Chelsea were well pounded at the Vicarage Road.

Carragher, who also believed that Chelsea made things looked so easy for Watford said, “I do not think I have seen Chelsea play like this for 15 years.

“Tonight was a bad performance I have seen from a Chelsea team in a long time. Something isn’t right. Maybe they need a change.

“You would like to think that the problems he {Conte} has got with the board are not affecting the players, but as you have seen in the past few games, that was not Chelsea.

“I do not identify that kind of performance with Chelsea.”

Up next for Conte and his boys to redeem themselves will be a league meeting with West Brom next Monday at the Stamford Bridge
