Victor Moses was unavailable for Chelsea’s game against Crystal Palace and was replaced by Pedro Rodriguez.
Pedro replaced Moses in the right wing-back position as Chelsea lost 2-1; although he wasn’t as efficient as Moses, the Spaniard gave a good shift, and has earned the praises of his manager.
Conte said: “Victor Moses is an important player because he’s having a great season but Pedro played very well in that wing-back position. As wingers, they are very offensive and that showed we wanted to play our football. Pedro had a very good game.”
