When you watch Chelsea, sometimes Antonio Conte provides more entertainment than his team does.
That wasn’t quite the case this afternoon as the English Premier League leaders put in a very strong performance against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea lead 2-0, at the time of writing, and look good value for picking up the three points which will extend their lead at the top of the table to 12 points.
Marcos Alonso’s opening goal came after a well worked move from the hosts, while Eden Hazard applied the second with a stunning individual run and finish.
But it was also particularly fun watching Conte’s antics on the sidelines during the game.
First him heading Costa and Alonso’s headers for the first goal was pretty funny:

Then there was his serious reaction to Arsenal getting a free header from a set piece:

We would hate to be that coach.
And to top it all off, his celebration with the Chelsea supporters after Hazard’s goal was great to see:

That passion really is amazing to see from the Italian manager.
