Former West Brom, Sunderland, Everton, Wigan Athletic and Hull City left back cum winger Kevin Kilbane has revealed why Victor Moses is thriving at Chelsea, as a wingback in coach Antonio Conte’s 3-4-3 system.
Moses is one of the first name on the team sheet of the table topping team of coach Conte, playing a big role in their current run of six wins in six achieved without conceding a goal.
Kilbane who played as a left wing back during his days as a player, wrote about why the Nigerian is thriving in Chelsea’s formation under Conte in his column for the BBC.
“It helps Moses that he has got a really stable set-up behind him thanks to N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic.
“Moses knows at least one of them will drop in too, so Chelsea’s three-man defence is rarely left without cover even if he does not get back.
“So he can really bomb forward as much as he likes, especially in games like Sunday where his side were on top for long spells.
“Boro defended very deep, Chelsea saw a lot of the ball and he could push high up the pitch.
“The home side did not really deal very well with Chelsea’s shape and their full-back Fabio was being dragged inside by Pedro.
“Kante was also getting forward on the left and Gaston Ramirez did not know how to deal with him and Moses, meaning Moses got a lot of room.”
