Diego Costa's "bad behaviour" is now a thing of the past.

Antonio Conte is pleased Diego Costa' has put his "bad behaviour" behind him after good start to the Premier League season for Chelsea. The Spain international has had a reputation for indiscipline in the past but seems to have worked on his temper this season and Conte is delighted Costa's attitude is more focused on scoring goals for the Blues. "I am pleased for him, for Diego," Conte said in his pre-match media conference ahead of Saturday's clash with Manchester City. "He is showing a great respect, great passion in the right way during these games. It is fantastic for him, for me, his team-mates and the club. "Also it is great to talk about Diego in a positive way and not a bad way. At the start of the season, the questions about Diego were about how his passion was not good and that we should try to change his behaviour. "I think Diego is playing very well and we are happy that this [bad] behaviour is in the past."
