Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has warned his players, saying they’re all on trial for Conte.
The Italy manager will take over from Hiddink after his national duties at the Euro 2016 comes to an end.
After Chelsea lost 1-0 to Swansea, Hiddink feels the players must show up for Conte if they’re to make the squad.
“It is a clean slate, everyone has to fight for his position with the new manager coming in of course,” Hiddink said.
“There is that, but when you play at Chelsea you must always be proud and play with internal motivation.
“If you play only with external motivation, worrying about material things or your position, you are slipping away.
“The intrinsic motivation is a condition that has to be there if you are to say a player is suitable for a big club.
“I said after beating Villa we will see what the players can do in bigger games. This was a bigger game because of the importance to Swansea.”
The loss against Swansea left Chelsea in 10th place in the Premier League ladder with five games to go in their season, leaving them nine points out of the European places.
