Tottenham boss Conte: Davies just like this Chelsea leader

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte admits he's a fan of Ben Davies.

Conte has likened Davies to Chelsea's Champions League winning captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

He told Football.London: "Yeah, you're right because Ben is playing very well and I think that that role specifically, I can get out the best of him, and it happened the same with (Cesar) Azpilicueta and I think the three central defenders, it's important to be good defensively, but at the same time, for me it's important to play football, have personality and play the ball.

"Also when you find a team that's defending very low, it's very important in this system. I need players with personality to play the ball and also to be offensive.

"Ben is one of these players, he shows great solidity and plays well defensively. I'm happy for him. We are talking about a really good person, a good guy. He's always really focused and concentrated."
