Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes that Sunday's 2-0 win over Southampton at the Saint Marys Stadium was Victor Moses' best game in a Blues shirt.
The win took Chelsea within a point of league leaders Manchester City ,Arsenal and Liverpool.
Nevin, a columnist on Chelsea's official website, likened the Nigerian international's performance in recent games at wing-back to that of an Olympic 400 metre gold medallist hammering down the flanks.
Nevin wrote: "…. Victor Moses was colossal and for me he had his best game by far in a Chelsea shirt.
"So while many would have given man of the match to Diego or Eden, I certainly would not have begrudged Victor getting the nod.
"His tackling was fantastic and bordering on the fanatical at times.
"He has the air of a man who has been given a chance he never thought he would get, and by God he isn’t going to let it go."
The 25-year-old had previously spent the last three seasons away on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham.
Nevin also attributed Moses impressive form to his fitness level this season.
"Maybe what is helping more than anything else is a lack of many midweek games," he added. "Moses may be incredibly fit and have the physique of a middleweight boxer, but playing three positions simultaneously every game can get wearing for anyone."
Moses is expected to make his sixth straight start when Chelsea host sixth-placed Everton at Stamford Bridge this Saturday.
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last four games in the English Premier League and have not conceded a goal.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
