Chelsea wingback wizard Victor Moses who has been heavily linked with a move to Catalan giants Barcelona has spoken out about what he needs to do, to keep his spot in the good books of coach Antonio Conte.
‘It was a big boost for me but the most important thing is the team,’ he tells the official Chelsea website. ‘We all worked very hard and enjoyed the game against Middlesbrough. It was a match in which we had to graft in order to get the three points because we knew we would go top of the league if we won.
‘We just have to keep believing in ourselves. I’m enjoying my game at the moment and I just want to keep on improving.’
In recent weeks the understanding between Moses, operating in the right wing-back role, and Pedro, who has been playing further forward on the same flank, has really begun to blossom.
The pair linked up well once more at Middlesbrough, as they had done in the preceding fixtures, and Moses is enjoying playing with the Spaniard.
‘We’ve been working hard on it in training,’ he says. ‘Pedro has been playing really well, he’s getting used to the Premier League and he understands the game very well. He’s enjoying his football, scoring a few goals and helping out defensively as well. I like playing with Pedro, we have a great understanding between us and it’s working well for the team.
‘He’s a great player and he’s won everything so you have to respect his achievements. When you come to a new country it can be difficult but he’s got to grips with it now and he’s doing well. The fans are enjoying what he brings to the team and we’re all pleased for him.’
