Chelsea fans showed their support for manager Antonio Conte by hiring a plane with a banner bearing his name on Saturday.

Just minutes into Chelsea's FA Cup semi-final clash with north London rivals Tottenham, a plane flew over Wembley Stadium with a banner that read: "Antonio! Antonio!"

It was warmly received by the Chelsea fans inside the ground, who cheered loudly when they first saw it, before the plane circled above Wembley a further four times.

The timing of its first appearances was spot on as Chelsea had just taken the lead through Willian, who fired in a free kick just outside the area.

Tottenham restored parity soon afterward through Harry Kane, who headed in Christian Eriksen's cross in the 18th minute.
