The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been delighted with Antonio Conte’s management this season…
Up and down the pitch, the Blues have been flying – and no area has been more impressive than the Chelsea defence.
Whilst the Blues back line really struggled last season, Conte has come in and completely revolutionised it, with each member of the defence performing spectacularly.
Two players that have been particularly impressive are the Chelsea wing-backs. A difficult position to play, both Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses have excelled in the role – with the duo finding the perfect balance between defence and attack.
Whilst the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been waxing lyrical over the last few weeks with regards to their fine form, it seems as though Antonio Conte has been equally as impressed.
Speaking during an event at Stamford Bridge, Conte has heaped praise upon the duo, reportedly stating via Dan Levene on Twitter: “Azpi is incredible in his new role – one of the best in the world in this role. Also Moses – to run with this quality. Fantastic”.

In that statement, Conte has said what everyone in the Transfer Tavern has been thinking. Cesar Azpilcueta has got to go down as one of Chelsea’s best ever signings, with the Spaniard arguably turning into one of the Premier League’s players of the season so far.
Marcos Alonso struggled at the start of his tenure, but his form has really improved as the season has gone on – and he deserves a lot of credit for that.
The duo will need to be on form this weekend, though, with the Blues facing a tough test in the form of Swansea City.
