Cape Town - Chelsea manager Antonio Conte admits that he is struggling to sleep as he plots to resurrect the Blues' faltering form in the Premier League.

Conte's team were humbled 3-0 by Arsenal in a London derby on Saturday, which followed on from a 2-1 home loss against Liverpool.

Chelsea now sit in eighth place in the Premier League standings, eight points behind current leaders Manchester City.

Speaking after the defeat to the Gunners, Conte said: "I don't sleep, sure. I don't sleep. After this game, this defeat, it's normal for me not to sleep. Not only one night, but for two nights.

"When I don't sleep, I reflect. And it's important to reflect. When you have a bad performance - we have a bad performance together, me first, my staff second, and then the players."

The Italian added: "It is important to take this experience as an opportunity to understand we want to come back very quickly. To fight for something important in England, it is important to improve."
