Conte surprised at improvement shown by this Chelsea player

The Nigerian wide-man has spent the last three seasons out on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham, but has surprised many by working his way back into Chelsea’s plans this term.

With Branislav Ivanovic unconvincing at the start of this season, Moses has handed Conte a real boost by performing on the right-hand side of the club’s new-look defence.

The Italian is happy with Moses’ transition to a more defensive role, and praised the player after he scored in today’s win over Leicester City.

‘When I arrived at Chelsea I told the club I wanted to see Victor in pre-season because I knew him very well and I knew about his great potential,’ he said.

‘He played well as a winger when we were playing with a 4-2-4. He’s a very good player, now he’s playing as a wing-back and it’s fantastic because he pays great attention in defence and can go one against one in attack.

‘(Marcos) Alonso always played this role but Moses is a winger. His education is fantastic. I’m pleased for him.

‘If someone shows they deserve to play I have no problem, I don’t care about the surname.’
