I don't think it's attitude. I think it's talent, and a staggering lack of quality depth (that Conte expressed concerns about before the season started). City, Untied, Liverpool, and Spurs all field more talented sides. Probably Arsenal too. And depth is not a concern for any of them, outside of maybe Spurs. I don't fault locker room issues - no signs that he's lost anyone in it. He does make weird tactical adjustments from time-to-time. I think this goes back to what epic was saying about Roman, and the changed approach he has in paying for and pursuing top level talent. I think we'll be under different ownership within 5 years.
