Nigeria international, Victor Moses got back to his brilliant form of last season as he helped Chelsea to a crucial 2-1 win over Burnley at the Turf Moor on Wednesday night.
Moses was restored to the starting line-up after the Blues lost their last match to Southampton and he repaid his coach’s faith in him.
Moses was crucial to Chelsea’s first goal of the game in the 20th minute.

Cahill played a superb long pass over the top to Moses, who brought the ball under his control on the run. He then crossed beyond Pope and against the helpless Long, who inadvertently bundled the ball into his own net.

Both teams went into the break with Chelsea at 1-0 and Moses had the chance to increase Chelsea’s lead in the second half but was thwarted by a Pope save.
It looked like Chelsea would be made to pay for the missed chances as Burnley levelled the game through Barnes who got an inadvertent touch on Gudmundsson’s shot and diverted it past Courtois.

Moses had the last laugh though as he put Chelsea back in the lead, finishing off an Emerson cross to the back post.
Substitute, Zappacosta should have sealed the game but he was only able to head a Victor Moses cross wide of the post.
