Conte relaxed at Chelsea striker Costa's yellow card total

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is not overly concerned about Diego Costa having picked up three yellow cards already this season.

"Yes, two more yellow cards is a ban but I am not worried about it. Diego is growing in these situations - in the last game he showed great attitude," he said.

"He is passionate but I want him to put his passion into the football in the right way.

"It is difficult to tell your player to be patient because I think he knows he is close to a ban.

"He is an important player but in our squad there are other players should he get a ban such as Michy Batshuayi."
