As Bournemouth play host to Chelsea at the Vitality Stadium this evening, the Cherries boss Eddie Howe has nothing but praise for the Chelsea manager.

Howe has admitted that he’s in awe of Conte’s passion and emotion he shows on the touchline.

He said: “I find him a really enthralling character, someone who is very passionate, he’s as passionate away from the touchline.

“It’s fascinating to talk football with him for a period of time.

“I think he’s brought a great deal to the Premier League, he’s played a massive part of that three-at-the-back revolution.

“He’s brought a lot of passion and drive to the touchline.

“He’s intriguing to watch tactically, and with how he motivates his team.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
