    Bookie suspends bets on Conte sacking!

    This is a shock: British bookies Betway have suspended all wagers on Chelsea Coach Antonio Conte getting the sack. 

    While the former Juventus manager has struggled to stabilize the Blues' defence, owner Roman Abramovich is known for his trigger finger, having fired the likes of Jose Mourinho, Roberto Di Matteo and Luis Felipe Scolari after disappointing starts. 

    The Blues have lost consecutive big games to Liverpool and Arsenal, leaving them seventh in the Premier League table. 

    Metro report that Betway have completely suspended betting, while the likes of Paddy Power and William Hill have shortened their odds from 33/1 to 7/1 and 20/1 to 4/1 respectively. 

    "Our traders are on red alert after a flurry of telling bets on Antonio Conte being the next Premier League manager to leave their post were placed this afternoon,’ Betway's Alan Alger told the British newspaper. 

    "We’ve now suspended betting on Conte getting the sack". 

    Though they have also slashed their odds, SkyBet have a different opinion, spokesman Sandro Di Michele claiming that "it feels more like speculative small bets from punters as opposed to anything concrete". 

    Hardly the serene preparation Chelsea were looking for ahead of Saturday's big-time clash with Leicester City!
