Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said performances of Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses at wing-back has been key to his side’s recent run of victories.

Conte has utilised a 3-4-3 formation during Chelsea’s run of four consecutive Premier League victories

“I ask my wing-backs to attack and defend. I think Moses is a great surprise in this aspect because we know him as a winger, but I think he is playing in a fantastic way.

“For Alonso it wasn’t easy to go into the English league and to play in this way.”

The two players made vital contributions to Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Southampton over the weekend.

“This role is very important in this system because you must have good stamina and quality to play as a wing-back,” Conte said.

He added that his squad has enough strength in depth to use wing-backs throughout the season, adding: “We have to continue but I think Pedro can also play in this role, like Moses.

“More defensively, [Branislav] Ivanovic or [Ola] Aina can play as wing-backs, but I’m pleased because I’m seeing a lot of positive things.”
