Ex-international Mutiu Adepoju has hailed Victor Moses’ performance in Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Monday night.
The wing-back registered his second goal in 19 English Premier League games this season to help ease pressure off manager Antonio Conte after back to back defeats to Bournemouth and Watford.
“Great game and goal from VictorMoses,” Adepoju tweeted.
“He’s already sending shivers down Super Eagles’ Fifa World Cup opponents’ spine.”
Meanwhile, Cesc Fabregas cheekily tried to claim an assist for Moses’s before being shut down by team-mates Thibaut Courtois and Marcos Alonso.
The Spaniard flicked a through ball which took a huge deflection off Craig Dawson and into the path of Moses who tucked away Chelsea’s second before the Blues went on to win 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Fabregas posted a picture with Moses on Instagram after the game and tried his luck by claiming the assist.
He wrote: “Loving my boy Victor Moses when he finishes my assist.”
But it wasn’t long before Thibaut Courtois and Alonso piped up. Alonso wrote :’Assist or rebound?’ and the goalkeeper added, ‘definitely rebound.’
Clearly Fabregas was joking and was forced to explain he was being sarcastic in the comments section.
The mood has lifted at Chelsea after their three points against the Baggies with Conte’s side leapfrogging Tottenham into fourth.
Pressure is still on the Italian but he will hope their recent dip is over now following disappointing home defeats to Bournemouth and Watford.
