Pundit: These two Chelsea players have been revelations
Jamie Redknapp heaps praise on Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses for their key roles in helping Chelsea win the title
Jamie Redknapp has heaped praise on both Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses for the key parts they have played in helping Chelsea to win the Premier League title this season.
Alonso joined the west London club from Fiorentina last summer and has made the left wing-back role his own in Chelsea’s 3-4-3 formation.
The Spaniard has earned plenty of praise for his displays and he helped Chelsea beat West Brom to be crowned Premier League champions at West Brom last week.
Moses has also been in fine form at right wing-back for Antonio Conte’s side this season after previously struggling to hold down a spot in the first team at Stamford Bridge.
And Redknapp lavished praise on Conte for the impact he has had at Stamford Bridge, before singling out the wing-backs for their contribution.
Redknapp told Sky Sports: “It’s been a revelation.
“When you see a team so well-drilled and so well-organised, I think the manager deserves enormous credit.
“They’re the first team to win the league playing three at the back.
“People had their doubts about the system but if you work on it and have the right personnel… he’s done things you’d never have thought would happen – Victor Moses playing at wing-back and Marcos Alonso has been a revelation.”
Chelsea will take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month as they look to end the season with a domestic double.
