Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte, has spoken on Victor Moses after the Blues fell 3-1 to Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Moses gave away possession to Tottenham player leading to the equalizer of Alvaro Morata’s opener which he (Moses) also assisted.

Speaking BBC Sports, Conte said it was wrong to start apportioning blames on an individual player.

The Italian said having been a player himself, Moses’ mistake can happen to anyone.

Conte said, “The goal at the end of the first half it wasn’t good for us and our confidence.

“We deserved to go in 2-0 up but football is this and Eriksen scored a fantastic goal.

“Second half we tried to score again but Tottenham have been more clinical than us.

“In this season we are not so clinical and then we lost the game.”

On Victor Moses losing possession for the Spurs’ equaliser, the former Juventus boss added, “I was a footballer, it can happen where you lose the ball.

“It’s not the time to put responsibility on a player. We must be in this situation together.”

On the top four hopes, he said, “For sure we lost a great chance today to reduce the gap with Tottenham.

“There are seven games to go and we have to do our best until the end. At the end of the season you finish in the position you deserve.”
