The Nigerian well worked beauty against the Foxes has been nominated for the Blues’ monthly goal contest.
Victor Moses’ goal against Leicester City has been nominated for Chelsea’s Goal of the Month competition alongside four other strikes.
After first half strikes from Diego Costa and Eden Hazard had set the Blues on course for victory, the impressive winger drilled the final nail into the Foxes’ coffin.
The former West Ham player showed playing in a wingback role has not affected his goal scoring know-how after a combination of bravery, poor defending – from Claudio Ranieri’s men – and a perfectly executed backheel by Nathaniel Chalobah saw him beat the onrushing Kasper Schmeichel to wrap up a deserved 3-0 victory for Antonio Conte’s team.
His strike is pitted against Diego Costa’s wonderful efforts against Hull City and Southampton, while Willian’s curler against the Tigers also made the shortlist with N’Golo Kante’s solo effort against Manchester United capping it off.
The winner will be determined by a voting system via the club’s official website.
