Super Eagles forward Victor Moses won the Man of the Match award in Chelsea’s hard-fought 1-0 win against Middlesbrough on Sunday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Moses’ Man of the Match award was confirmed on the English Premier League official Twitter handle moments after the match.
Moses, who has been one of Chelsea’s outstanding players under Antonio Conte, put up another eye-catching performance for the Blues against a stubborn Boro side.
The Nigerian star sparkled in his now familiar right wing-back role, constantly tormenting the Boro left-back while carrying out his own defensive duties superbly.
One of Moses’ clever runs from deep almost resulted in a goal late in the game when he latched on to a Diego Costa ball, but he screwed it wide with keeper Victor Valdes slightly putting him off.
After a brilliant performance, Moses was later replaced by Branislav Ivanovic in the 90th minute.
