Janmaat scored a fine goal to put Watford 2-1 up in a frantic finaleMARC ASPLAND THE TIMES
According to Evening Standard's Simon Johnson, the Italian boss has given his players three days off.
"I tried to warn everyone about the difficulty of our path in the league and Champions League", said the Italian, whose struggling side faces a tough last-16 tie against Barcelona in Europe's top European club competition later this month.
Watford dominated in front of their home supporters at Vicarage Road and were unlucky when Chelsea equalised eight minutes before the full-time whistle with a curling, 25 yard effort from Belgium Eden Hazard.
Former Chelsea assistant coach, Ray Wilkins, believes that The Blues' manager, Antonio Conte, is paying for the mistakes of former Technical Director, Micheal Emenalo. Two shock defeats in a row against Bournemouth and Watford, respectively, have seen Conte's men concede seven times while scoring just once.
Chelsea cruised to the title in coach Antonio Conte's first campaign in England last season but it is 19 points behind runaway leader Manchester City and is focused on finishing in the top four Champions League qualification spots.
"The squad is weaker this season than the one that won the league previous year".
"I have a great disappointment, our performance was very bad", Conte said. "I think so. We are not used to playing this type of football".
Despite winning the PL (Premier League) title a year ago, Conte is under the significant pressure due to the poor performance of his team, most recent their defeat came against Watford has left Conte on the verge. While he has just signed a two-year contract extension he may well think now is the time to leave the Spanish capital if Chelsea come calling.
"As a player what I want is to get back on the training field as soon as possible, work hard for Monday's game, get the three points and get some confidence back".
"We are getting penalised in the bad moments we are having in the game".
When asked about his position at the club, Conte told BBC Radio 5 live: "It is the same". "I work every day, and I give 120 percent. OK?"
"This season, the situation has always been the same, with a lot of pressure, and I don't understand why, always around me".
"The most frustrating thing is he seems to have brought so much of this situation down on himself, with the public speaking and the complaining".
Chelsea probably could have done with John Terry in the last two games.
However, Belgium stopper Courtois has rubbished those suggestions: "We believe in him [Antonio Conte] and we believe in our team".
