Be mor prolific, Conte counsels Moses,Alonso

Conte: Alonso, Moses Must Be More Prolific

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has urged Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses to be more prolific playing as for the team Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Chelsea recorded their first win of the season defeating Tottenham Hotspurs 2-1 at the Wembley stadium on Sunday.

A goal in each half from Alonso, a superb free-kick in the first half and a strike late in the game, sealed the win after substitute Michy Batshuayi had diverted the ball into his own net to restore parity for Spurs.

The brace took Alonso’s tally to eight goals in 33 Premier League appearances for Chelsea, making him the most prolific defender in the league since he arrived last season.

“I am not surprised [he scored]. If you remember last season he scored five or six goals, it was the same with Moses,” Conte told the club’s official website.

“He missed a lot of chances last season to improve his tally, but I know very well the wing-backs are the real wingers, and sometimes they must become strikers.”

 

Moses Shines, Alonso bags brace as Chelsea spoils Spurs Wembley dream

   Nigeria star Victor Moses made his first English Premier League appearance of the season for Chelsea who recorded their first three points with a 2-1 win over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur despite being dominated at Wembley on Sunday.

Moses alongside Timeou Bakayoko, Alvaro Morata and Andreas Christensen were the four players making their first start of the campaign.

Marcos Alonso curled in a superb free-kick in the 23rd minute of the game after David Luiz was fouled at the edge of the box but an own goal from Mitchy Batshuayi in the 82nd minute got Spurs the equaliser.

But Alonso popped up to fire the winner for the reigning EPL champions with six minutes left to play.

Harry Kane had the first shot on goal when he stung the palms of Thibaut Courtois in the 13th minute.

The Belgian goalkeeper was on hand again to stop Kane from scoring three minutes later when he parried his shot for a corner.

Kane also hit the upright after a breaching the Chelsea defence in the 38th minute.

Spur were unlucky not to have restored parity in the 40th minute when Christian Ericksen’s free-kick went inches off the upright.

At the restart, Tottenham continued from where they stopped, creating two chances in the opening few minutes in quick succession.

And in the 75th minute Timo Bakayoko found William whose shot struck the upright.

But in the 83rd minute Batshuayi diverted in Erickson’s free-kick for the equaliser before Alonso sealed a nervy win for the Blues.Moses Shines, Alonso Steals Show As Chelsea Bounce Back

The win was Chelsea’s first win in their last three visits to the Wembley Stadium.

Super Eagles will win against Bafana -Onazi

Image result for Ogenyi OnaziNigeria Super Eagles and Trabzonspor midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi, has played down the absence of the pair of John Mikel Obi and Victor Moses ahead of Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, insisting that the Super Eagles will not settle less for a victory against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa.

Mikel ans Moses were left out of the squad for the game due to various reasons.

 Mikel is still recuperating from the abdominal injury that has kept him out of action for eight weeks, while Moses will undergo a toe surgery in the coming weeks.

Onazi said that he was not under any pressure to lead the team out against  South Africa, but focused on leading the team to victory on Saturday.

“I understand the fact that Victor Moses and Mikel Obi are not here, but as the stand-in skipper, my aim is to lead my teammates to victory on Saturday,” Onazi told Completesportnigeria.com.

“I was there in 2014 when the team drew 2-2 against South Africa. That will not happen on Saturday.”

 

Trending: Victor Moses wins First EPL title with Chelsea

Image result for Victor MosesLots of Nigerians have been congratulating Victor Moses of Super Eagles as his club in England, Chelsea FC crowned champions of 2016/2017 English Premier League after edging West Bromwich Albion 1-0 in a hard-fought game at the Hawthorns on Friday.

Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi was the hero for Chelsea as he pounced on Cesar Azpilicuerta’s ball across goal to give Chelsea the win.

Super Eagles forward Victor Moses was in action for Chelsea and went close on several occasions to give Chelsea the lead before going off for Kurt Zouma late in the game.

The game was Moses’ 33rd league appearances for Chelsea this season, scoring three goals. It’s the Nigeria star’s first Premier League title.

This is Chelsea’s sixth league title (1955, 2005, 2006, 2010, 2015) and their fifth in the Premier League era.

It is also their second EPL title in the last three seasons.

The win took Chelsea to 87 points with two games to play.

However, Luiz who has been a revelation for Chelsea this season since he returned for a second spell at Stamford Bridge told the Daily Mail in an interview on Friday that Nigerian international Moses has been brilliant in his new position.

Moses has scored three goals as a wing-back this season.

“It’s like football, I know things a bit more now,” Luiz told the Daily Mail.
“I think in a different way. I love our system. It has helped so many players. But, don’t forget, we had also lost games.

“If the manager had started the season playing Victor Moses at right wing-back, everyone would have said, “He’s crazy — go back to Italy.” But with the right circumstances, he’s had an amazing season.

“Everyone thought he was crazy when I came back, too. But I know my role. Cover everybody, cover the space. It is not the best position for me with the ball. Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta touch the ball more than me, because all the strikers stay with me.”
