High flying Chelsea wingback Victor Moses has revealed the secrets of being a successful wingback following his meteoric rise at Chelsea this season in the role handed to him by coach Antonio Conte.

Moses has moved from the player who spent the last three seasons on loan to an integral part of the team that is challenging for honours this season on two fronts.

The 27 year old has ‎metamorphosed into one of the finest wingback in England this season, a rapid transformation from his original role as a wing forward.

“He (Conte) didn’t say to me, “Do I fancy playing wing back?” He just put me in there, and after that he just kept on encouraging me,’ Moses said.

‘He went through what the position was all about, constantly talking to me in training to make sure I was improving in it. I took that in and I didn’t look back.

‘I have been learning a lot defensively. And when I play against a winger I understand what they are going to do before they try and go past me, so it makes it a lot easier.’
