Goals from Eden Hazard and Diego Costa sealed another comfortable win for Chelsea, while the club’s run of clean sheets has now extended to four Premier League games.

Moses has been one of the players who has benefited from Conte’s change to a 3-4-3 system after the defeat to Arsenal last month, with the Nigeria international impressing in a wing-back role.

And when asked about the significance of wing-backs in his new formation, Conte replied: ‘This role is very important in this system.

‘You must have good stamina and quality to play as wing-backs. I ask my wing-backs to do offensive and defensive work.

‘Moses is a great surprise in this aspect. We know Moses as a winger, but he’s playing in a fantastic way.
‘Also Alonso, it wasn’t easy to go in to the English league and play in this way, and I’m pleased.’
