It's fair to say Antonio Conte is enjoying his debut season in the Premier League. Following victory over Stoke on Saturday afternoon, the Blues now find themselves 13 points clear of second placed Tottenham and with an FA Cup semi-final to look forward to.

It's quite the contrast from last season when the club looked deflated and out of sorts under Jose Mourinho. The Italian tactician has quite simply breathed new life into the side.

With just under two months of the season left to run, it looks like Chelsea will reclaim the Premier League title, with Conte bringing success straight away.

But one of the best things about this Chelsea side isn't just watching his team, but watching the man himself.

Conte is undoubtedly one of the most passionate managers working in the game today, and he's not afraid to show his emotions when they get the better of him.

His latest outburst came today, with his side being held to a 1-1 draw with Stoke, captain Gary Cahill reacted the quickest late on to put the ball in the net and secure another three points to bring home to Stamford Bridge.

It was a tight game, with Stoke giving a good account of themselves, but it was Chelsea's class that prevailed, and Conte responded to the late drama in kind.

As the ball hit the net, the camera panned over to the sidelines to catch a glimpse of the former Juventus boss swinging from the dugout in delight.

Fantastic scenes. That's exactly the kind of passion we all want to see from our football managers.

Since coming to England he has been a gift that has kept on giving, whether it is his charismatic persona during interviews or his antics in the dugout, he is always worth keeping an eye on.

After the game he added: "For sure this is an important win.

"It is not easy at this point in the season to come here and play Stoke, a strong team with good quality and good tactical organisation, but we showed from the start to the end a great will to win and I am very pleased for this. My players were prepared to fight for this game because it was not easy.

"We have played two games away against West Ham and Stoke and to win both is very important at this part of the season."
