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.’
