Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that Nigeria star Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso are important to Chelsea’s impressive winning streak in the English Premier League.
Pochettino whose side are yet to lose at home this term praised his opposite number Antonio Conte for his tactical masterclass and smooth transition to English football which has seen Chelsea stay top of the Premier League for the past seven weeks.
“Moses and Alonso are fundamental because, with their running, they allow Pedro and [Eden] Hazard to take breaks now and again. They are key players for Chelsea’s game and hatching that plan also shows how good Conte is,” Pochettino told the official Tottenham website ahead of the Wednesday night clash with Chelsea.
Moses has been impressive as a wing-back for Chelsea who have scored 32 goals and conceded just four.
The Super Eagles star grabbed the winner for the Blues as they secured a 2-1 win over Tottenham at Stamford Bridge in November.
Chelsea are yet to lose a game with Moses in the line-up this season.
