Moses rescues Blues



Nigeria forward, Victor Moses has voiced his sentiments following his match winning performance for Chelsea in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions’ League victory against Ukrainian club, Shakhtar Donetsk.

Shakhtar came into the game at Stamford Bridge against the Blues with an intimidating unbeaten run that spanned seventeen months but Moses’ strike at the death meant the run was snapped in the most dramatic of fashions.

The forward was introduced by the Chelsea Manager, Roberto di Matteo as an 81st minute substitute for impressive Brazilian youngster, Oscar and he duly repaid the gaffer’s favour with an emphatically headed goal in the final minute of added time to give the Stamford Bridge club important points.

“We deserve to win the game today as you can see, we dominated the game particularly in the second half. I came on and probably played stayed for about ten minutes in the pitch. It was good to get a win (on Wednesday) and I think we deserve it,” Moses said after the game.

Moses has now scored three goals for the club since completing his summer move from Wigan Athletic and he was quick to point out the similarity of his strikes.

“The three goals I’ve scored for the club have been with my head so it’s been great for me so far so I am delighted,” he said.

The Nigerian forward, whose first goal for Chelsea was scored on September 24 when the Blues defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 6-0 at Stamford Bridge in the 3rd round of the Capital One Cup also scored for the Blues in the Premier League at the weekend.

Moses, who scored eight goals in 72 appearances for former club, Wigan Athletic, has also been capped six times by Nigeria.

He scored a brace as the Super Eagles defeated Liberia 6-1 in the final round of qualifying for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
