Marcos Alonso says Antonio Conte’s passion on the sidelines has been a factor in Chelsea’s success this season.
Chelsea are currently 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and are the heavy favourites to win the top-flight crown this season.
The west London side also booked their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Monday night with a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Conte has earned plenty of praise for the turnaround he has masterminded at Stamford Bridge following Chelsea’s disastrous season last term, when they ended up 10th and without a trophy.
And Alonso feels that Conte’s passion has spilled over onto the pitch this season.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Alonso said: “Not just today – I think he really lives the game and you can see he’s played it.
“He would love to be on the pitch.
“The way we are defending all together, not conceding and the way we put pressure on our rivals is a great job from everyone.”
