Nigeria star Victor Moses has received praise from Chelsea after being named man of the match in Thursday’s 2-1 Premier League win against Burnley at Turf Moor, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Moses, who scored the Blues’ winning goal in the encounter in the 70th minute after stabbing home Emerson Palmieri’s cross, also had a hand in the first with Kevin Long diverting his cross into the net.
“That was a fantastic performance from the Blues and a deserved three points. Victor Moses, with an assist and the winning goal, was the star man, but everyone performed admirably against tough opposition. Back-to-back wins is the perfect preparation for Wembley on Sunday,” the former Premier League champions wrote on their official Twitter handle after the game.
The former Wigan Athletic star has featured in 25 league games for Chelsea this season and registered three goals.
He looks good to retain his position in the Chelsea’s starting 11 for Sunday’s Emirates FA Cup semi-final clash against Southampton at the Wembley Stadium.
Antonio Conte’s men, who trailed fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur by 10 points last week, have now narrowed the gap to five points in the chase for a UEFA Champions League spot.
