Nigeria’s Victor Moses has earned accolades from Chelsea, securing the Man of the Match title in Thursday’s 2-1 Premier League victory against Burnley at Turf Moor. Completesportsnigeria.com reports that Moses not only scored the decisive goal in the 70th minute, tapping home Emerson Palmieri’s cross, but also played a key role in Chelsea’s first goal, with Kevin Long inadvertently deflecting his cross into the net.
In recognition of Moses’ outstanding performance, Chelsea took to their official Twitter handle to commend the entire team, highlighting Moses as the standout player. The tweet read, “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 are the perfect preparation for Wembley on Sunday.”
The former Wigan Athletic star has been a consistent figure in Chelsea’s lineup this season, featuring in 25 league games and contributing three goals. With his noteworthy display against Burnley, Moses is likely to retain his spot in Chelsea’s starting eleven for the upcoming Emirates FA Cup semi-final clash against Southampton at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
Antonio Conte’s side, which trailed fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur by 10 points last week, has narrowed the gap to five points in the pursuit of a UEFA Champions League spot, showcasing the significance of Moses’ impactful performance in the race for a top-four finish.
