Chelsea fans react as Antonio Conte picks up double award

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte picked up both the Premier League and LMA Manager of the Year awards on Monday night in recognition of an excellent debut campaign in England in which his side won the top flight title.

After a disappointing 10th-placed finish last season, Blues fans would have been more hopeful than expectant of their chances this term following the appointment of the Italian, and they would certainly have been worried following a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates in October.
