Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has asserted that he will persist with his exuberant celebrations when his team meets Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Monday. Conte was at the centre of a controversy last October when Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho accused him of trying to humiliate him with his over the top celebrations during Chelsea's 4-0 win.

"I think I've shown in my period at Chelsea, but not only here - always, in every team I've managed - that I live the game with great passion," the Chelsea manager was quoted as saying by the Guardian on Friday.
