Swansea have sacked manager Bob Bradley after just 11 games in charge.
Bradley, the first American to manage in the Premier League, was appointed at the start of October, but he won only two games and Swansea are only above bottom-placed Hull on goal difference following the 4-1 Boxing Day home defeat to West Ham.
The 58-year-old took training on Tuesday morning, but his departure was confirmed in a club statement.
"We are sorry to lose Bob after such a short period of time,'' Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said.
"Unfortunately things haven't worked out as planned and we felt we had to make the change with half the Premier League season remaining."
Antonio Conte wants his Chelsea side to build on their club record 12 straight wins by marching on to the Premier League title.
Should the Blues, who beat Bournemouth 3-0 on Boxing Day, defeat Stoke and Tottenham in their next two games, they will equal Arsenal's Premier League record of 14 successive wins.
But statistical landmarks matter little to former Juventus and Italy boss Conte, who wants his side to reclaim the Premier League trophy they won in May 2015 after relinquishing it so poorly last season.
"I prefer to win the title than the record," Conte, who was appointed in the summer, told Chelsea TV.
"Records are important, but not all. It's important to write history only when you win.
"To be in the history of the club and to win 12 games in a row is fantastic. But with the players we want to continue."
Chelsea forward Pedro believes the Blues' 11-match winning run is more impressive than any he managed while at Barcelona.
Pedro told the Daily Telegraph: "It's not new for me, but it's difficult in this league. It's different here. At Barcelona, it's normal to win most of the games and sometimes it's too easy.
"But the Premier League is very competitive and strong, and for this reason, 11 wins is a significant achievement.
"The record is 14, no? Only three wins more, but that will be difficult. Bournemouth are a good team. It's a very good objective to get this record.
"It's very different in Spain. Barca have many opportunities all the time to win matches, which in England is very difficult because the challenges are greater."
Pedro struggled during his first campaign at Stamford Bridge, but the Spain international is much more settled this season under Conte.
He added: "Second is a disaster at Barcelona, so last season was a new situation for me. It was a difficult situation for everyone, for the club, the team and the coach. There were a lot of problems, but this season is different.
"I would love to win the Premier League because it's the strongest league in the world and I think that would be something really good for my career."
We're not suggesting any current Premier League players would do this, but you never know...Read the full story ›
