Charlie Adam hailed Victor Moses‘ displays for Chelsea this season, claiming he’s “adapted incredibly well” to his role at wing-back.
Despite arriving at Stamford Bridge back in 2012, this has been Moses’ breakthrough season in west London under Antonio Conte, following loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United. The 26-year-old was brought back into the fold last summer, and has since proved his usefulness to the Italian boss.
Moses has been deployed as a wing-back since Conte’s switch to a 3-4-3 formation back in October, proving hugely successful in the role. The Nigerian international has combined his undoubted attacking quality with a surprising defensive nous, helping Chelsea in their Premier League title push.
While the Blues secured another excellent result over Arsenal at the weekend, former Stoke teammate Adam praised Moses’ versatility this season, claiming he’s done very well so far.
By the way he’s adapted incredibly well,” Adam told BBC Sport. “Because when he was at our place he played and showed potential that he could play, but did you really think he could play in the number of games that Conte’s given him? He’s given him that lift and responsibility, and he’s done extremely well.”
Moses has scored three goals and created 16 chances in 23 Premier League appearances this season, winning 51% of his average duels, as Chelsea sit top on 59 points, nine clear of Tottenham Hotspur in second.
Next up for them is an away clash at Burnley on Sunday, before taking on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup fifth round at Molineux.
