Coach of Tottenham Hotspur Mauricio Pochettino says stopping Chelsea flying wingback Victor Moses is key to his side securing all three points when they take on the Blues later this evening.
The Nigerian has been key to Chelsea’s 13 match winning streak playing wonderfully well as a wingback in their 3-4-3 formation, that has helped them stay top of the Premier League.
Moses as a matter of fact scored the winner for Chelsea in the reverse tie which they won 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in November, and Pochettino is keen on stopping him from wrecking havoc today.
Pochettino pointed out that stopping Chelsea wingback duo of Moses and Mikel Alonso will stop them from giving Pedro and Eden Hazard the chance to break free upfront.
“Moses and Alonso are fundamental because, with their running, they allow Pedro and [Eden] Hazard to take breaks now and again. They are key players for Chelsea’s game and hatching that plan also shows how good Conte is,” Pochettino told the official Tottenham website ahead.
