Footage emerges showing Antonio Conte going crazy at Chelsea bench

For the first time in their history, Chelsea have endured three goalless draws in a row after they were unable to find a way past Leicester City.

On paper, it may look as though the Foxes held the champions, but both sides had chances to win the game.

Antonio Conte will be all the more frustrated that his side didn't capitalise given that Ben Chilwell's sending off reduced Claude Puel's side to ten men.

Blues fans know there's something not quite right at the moment, but it's difficult to pinpoint what that is.

Are Chelsea missing Diego Costa? Has Tiemoue Bakayoko been found out?

The home fans made no secret of their frustrations, especially when alongside Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard was brought off for the 10th time in the league this season.

That decision means Conte will be under the spotlight more than ever. It's almost an open secret that there's a good chance he'll be on his way out of Stamford Bridge this summer, as he has previously spoken about his homesickness and Roman Abramovich is rarely patient with managers who fail to win the league anyway.

Even many neutrals will feel sorry for him given the success he enjoyed last season.

The one man who won't have any sympathy is Jose Mourinho, who all but accused him of behaving like a "clown" on the touchline earlier this month.

Conte goes crazy 

Perhaps that comment was out of line, but a video has been doing the rounds that looks very much like Conte cracking up.

During a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth in the League Cup in December, the footage shows him completely losing it with his bench:

The member of his backroom staff initially gives as good as he gets, before another coach pulls his arm away.

Just a few months ago, the Italian was being hailed as a tactical genius - now the pressure may well be getting to him.

Should Mourinho happen to stumble upon the clip, he'll no doubt be delighted, particularly after Conte reopened their feud by referring to the United boss as a "little man" in a recent press conference.

Chelsea will be in action again on Wednesday as they look to avoid a potential banana skin as Norwich City visit for their FA cup replay.
