The race for the Champions League spots is still on after Chelsea moved within five points of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, with Victor Moses inspiring last season’s champions to a 2-1 win over Burnley on Thursday evening.
The right wing-back set up the opening goal in the 20th minute and scored the game-winner with 21 minutes remaining after Ashley Barnes had restored parity for the home team.
Moses had been criticized in recent matches, even by Chelsea’s Nigerian fans, but they were forced to eat their words following his Man of the Match performance against the Clarets.
This is what Chelsea’s Nigeria fans are saying on Twitter:
@Umar_Pharuuk : ”What a night for our own Victor moses yesterday Getting the 3points for Chelsea..”
@AyorindeTaiwo3 : ”Chelsea GOAT”.
