Victor Moses has thanked new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte for giving him the chance to play in his favourite position in the two games he has played for the team so far in pre season.

The Nigerian who has so far made 44 appearances with 12 goals to his name since joining Chelsea in 2012 with all coming during the period which Roberto Di Matteo and interim manager Rafa Benitez were in charge of the team as he has been out on loan since Jose Mourinho took over the team in 2013.

He has spent time at loan with Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham but under new manager Antonio Conte he has so far flourished in their first two pre season games against Rapid Vienna and RZ Pellets.

According to the 25 year old his fine form is down to the manager playing him in his favourite position which is on the flanks.

“That is my position really, staying out wide and most of the time going into one on one situations, which am good at. It is similar to the kind of game I was playing at Wigan and I have really enjoyed the two games” He said.

“As a winger, you want to get at defenders and make it hard for them instead of going forward, they have to defend against you”.
