Never before has the Premier League housed such a range of A-Grade managerial super-talent, with new boys Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte joining the likes of Arsene Wenger, Jurgen Klopp and (a returning) Jose Mourinho this summer.
On Monday night, Chelsea boss Conte got his first taste of Premier League action, courtesy of a deserved yet dramatic 2-1 home win against West Ham, with the former Italy manager producing a touchline celebration Klopp himself would be proud of after Diego Costa won the game for the Blues.
Eden Hazard had opened the scoring via the penalty spot as Chelsea looked set for an opening day victory. However, a James Collin effort in the second-half leveled the scores for the Hammers. Then, at the death, striker Costa produced a fine finish to win the game, with a joyous Conte going bananas on the touchline…

This season, the best entertainment may well come on the touchline and not on the pitch.
