Tottenham star Ben Davies was not surprised by the passion shown by Antonio Conte

Asked if he was surprised by Conte's behaviour, Davies said: "We're used to seeing that passion from him!

"His record speaks for itself. He's a world-class manager. But as a person and as a man on the side, you can't help but want to run through a brick wall for him.

"He's animated, he's very clear in what he wants from his team. He's very passionate. When he speaks, you can't help but just sit there and listen."

On the draw at Stamford Bridge, Davies said: "It's a tough place to come.

"We were probably second best in the first half. We were disappointed to concede from a set-piece. On a different day, you can go in 0-0 having not performed the best and you can look at it again.

"But it does give you a lot of confidence knowing the quality we've got that can come off the bench and change the game for us. The boys who came on I thought they did exactly what we wanted them to, which was to have an impact."
