The new Chelsea system, a 3-4-3 formation requires wing-backs; Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso are the two wing-backs Conte has been deploying.
The Chelsea boss spoke about the importance of their roles in the team.
“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.
He also revealed that Pedro can play the role well too, and how he can adopt Branislav Ivanovic and Ola Aina into the role.
“In this role, Pedro also can play, in the same way as Moses. Ivanovic or Aina can play a more defensive role as wing-back.” said the Blues manager.
