Antonio Conte reacts to Chelsea duo’s display in win over Tottenham
Antonio Conte singles out Victor Moses and Pedro for special praise after Chelsea's 2-1 win over Tottenham
Antonio Conte singled out both Pedro and Victor Moses for special praise after the duo fired Chelsea to a 2-1 win over Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday.
The west London club fell behind in the game early on when Christian Eriksen opened the scoring, but the Blues drew level on the stroke of half-time when Pedro curled home an equaliser.
Chelsea then took the lead early in the second half when Victor Moses ran the length of the pitch and fired home Diego Costa’s low cross to put the home side in control.
And the Blues then held firm to secure the three points and wrap up their seventh straight Premier League victory.
Both Pedro and Moses appear to have been given new leases of life under new boss Conte at Stamford Bridge.
And the Chelsea manager was delighted with how the duo performed against Spurs on Saturday evening in west London.
Conte is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “Pedro is playing good football and is enjoying this type of football. And he is showing his quality. It’s not easy for me to make the decision between him and Willian. But I think Pedro is playing very well and deserves to play.
“He is in a good moment now, his performances are good. He has scored goals, but also worked very hard for the team, and those are things I want to see.
“I’m really happy for him and also for Moses, a player that during pre-season maybe you wouldn’t think you would see in the starting XI.”
