Conte dig at Mourinho, defender rules out move, key to beating Tottenham

Antonio Conte has questioned how Victor Moses was overlooked at Chelsea for so long after seeing him develop into a key member of his table-topping side.

The winger featured under Roberto Di Matteo and then Rafael Benitez, however his Chelsea career took a turn for the worse when Mourinho walked back into Stamford Bridge.

The Nigerian wide-man has had a superb start to the 2016/17 season, despite low-key spells with Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham in the last three seasons.

"I noticed his potential from the first days of the summer retreat", Conte told Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport. Moses has important qualities: technique, physical strength, the ability to cover seventy meters of the pitch.

Jurgen Klopp has joked that Chelsea's change of formation was triggered by Liverpool's 2-1 win over the Blues at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League earlier this season.

Conte has also praised the impact of Pedro during his side's recent good run, and lauded the contributions of top scorer Diego Costa and October's Premier League player of the month, Eden Hazard.




Following Chelsea's sixth-straight clean sheet in the league, Thibaut Courtois only regrets not doubling the lead.

"Pedro is ideal for the 3-4-3, Diego Costa is one of the best centre-forwards in the world". For us it's not just important that he's a goalscorer, but that he works for the team.

Chelsea fans first saw the tactical change away at Arsenal in September when they were trailing 3-0 a half time at The Emirates. He has realised that he needs to improve in terms of how he keeps his nerve.

Chelsea have striker Michy Batshuayi and midfielders Willian, Oscar and Cesc Fabregas who could come in if Costa or Hazard were ruled out through injury or suspension.
