Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has refused to blame Super Eagles star Victor Moses for the 3-1 defeat to London rivals Tottenham.

Tottenham came back from a goal down to defeat Chelsea, and Moses was in action for 81 minutes before he was replaced by Olivier Giroud.

Moses was faulted for being casual with the ball in the build up for Tottenham’s leveller a 30-yard shot which was scored by Christian Eriksen before the halftime break.

Chelsea supporters took to social media to express their dissatisfaction with Moses after the game.

Conte who is credited for Moses’s reemergence in the Chelsea set up after being consistently loaned out, decided not to put the blame of the defeat on his wingback in his post-match conference.

Conte said, “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.”

Conte, however, admitted that the goal from Eriksen going into the break was not good for the confidence of his players.

He 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.”

”We played good football and should have been in 2 or 3-0. Instead, this goal created a bit of problems in our mind. We lost a bit of confidence.”

Conte stated that his side could have done more to prevent Tottenham from scoring their two goals in the second half.
