WATCH: Antonio Conte lives every moment of Chelsea vs. Leicester City on the touchline

New, comments

Non-stop action.

Unfortunately, Chelsea have yet to heed our advice to start a dedicated Conte-cam during home matches, but fortunately sportscaster Jim White (he of the Deadline Day yellow tie fame) was in attendance Saturday and, from his seat behind the Chelsea dugout, filmed several clips of Conte dancing on the touchline.

The video is a bit sped up, which does lend a touch of the Benny Hill to it, but even so, it's a great watch.  No wonder he sounds hoarse after every match!

Conte's shouting and gesticulating from the touchline seems to be working as Chelsea have now notched two wins and two clean sheets in the new 3-4-3 tactical setup.  And that makes Conte happy and calm.

"I changed the system because when you arrive at a new team you need time to study the right fit for the team. After we conceded a lot of goals I decided to change before the Hull game. When I see my players during the week working this way I'm very calm."

Next weekend will pose the biggest test yet, with Manchester United and Jose Mourinho coming to town.  But confidence is growing and if Chelsea play as well as we did on Saturday, we should be looking at another big win.
