With 11 games to go Chelsea currently sit ten points clear at the top of the Premier League table and all looks good for the champions-elect.

One reason for their dominance so far has been the consistency in which Antonio Conte has been able to utilise his preferred starting XI.

The back three, along with Victor Moses and Marco Alonso, have been regularly able to turn out each week, which has been a massive boost.

And right wing-back Moses has praised the manager for a training style that has seen them play so regularly.

“We’ve changed a lot this season. The new manager came in and the food regime changed a lot,” Moses said in Monday night’s matchday programme.

“We are in the gym more, to prevent us getting injured. We are doing certain work this season and you can see how fit we are.

“We are very focused on every game we play and the manager is making sure we are doing the right things, both on the training field and in recovery as well.”

Disappointingly for Moses, he hobbled off towards the end of the Manchester United win, and could be a doubt for Saturday’s clash with his former loan club Stoke City.

The 26-year-old has been a revelation in the wing-back role, and admitted it has taken some learning to get it right.

“I’d never played that position before this season, but I’m enjoying it the more games I play there, the more I’m getting used to it,” he added.

“Obviously the manager is there beside me as well, always talking to me to make sure I’m doing the right thing on the pitch.

“When he put me in that position he asked me if I’d played there before and I said ‘no’, so he explained everything I need to do and I’ve done that, taking his advice into the game, and it’s worked for me. After that, I’ve never looked back.”
