There have been some great personalities to trudge up and down the touchline in the Premier League over the last few years but Antonio Conte might be one of the most interesting managers to watch on a match day.

Conte isn't the first coach to be described as the type who kicks every ball but he is definitely the most dramatic.

Some - such as Louis van Gaal - don't feel the need to encourage their players from the touchline but Chelsea's Italian boss barely lets a second pass by without barking orders towards his team.

Despite reports of some bookies suspending the market of Conte getting the sack from the Blues on Friday, the former Juventus boss was in the dugout against Leicester at Stamford Bridge just a day later.

And Conte's men put in an imperious performance to comfortably win 3-0 over a surprisingly lacklustre Foxes team.

Chelsea's manager was up to his old tricks again and he was very busy in his technical area throughout the 90 minutes.

Sky Sports presenter Jim White was in attendance at the game and had the perfect view of Conte's various antics over the course of the game.

Fortunately for everyone else, White took advantage of his positioning at the ground to film the Italian's every move.

Afterwards, he posted the video on Twitter and the result is quite brilliant.

It includes an even better view of the stunning first touch he produced to control the ball - that has since gone viral - just to prove he's still got it.

Everyone goes on about how much distance the players cover every game but Conte must produce some serious mileage too.

Nevertheless, it should also be said that Conte's style doesn't always bring the best out of his players, though. Diego Costa demanded he was substituted after getting an earful from the boss following a wasted chance in the second half.

However, Conte did not oblige and Costa was forced to stay on for the full 90 as Chelsea picked up another invaluable three points.
