Chelsea supporters seem to have fallen more in love with their manager Antonio Conte after he visited the club’s Under-18s to congratulate them on winning the FA Youth Cup.
The young guns sealed their fourth consecutive title after sealing a 6-2 aggregate win over Manchester City in midweek.
On the night, Conte watched from the executive boxes at Stamford Bridge as the players of the future claimed a 5-1 triumph, with Trevoh Chalobah, Ike Ugbo, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Dujon Sterling and Cole DaSilva getting on the scoresheet.
After the final whistle, celebrations ensued and Conte took part before heading to the dressing room and delivering a speech to the teenage team.

It was a nice touch from the Italian coach, who is edging closer to claiming his first-ever Premier League title as his senior team have a four-point lead with five games left to play.
Unfortunately for the youth players, they face a huge challenge trying to break into the first-team squad.
John Terry is the only big success story in terms of Chelsea’s youth development, but a visit from Conte will only spur on the Blues’ developing talent.
