Nigeria international Victor Moses put the icing on the game with the last goal of the game as Chelsea thrashed reigning EPL champions, Leicester City, 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Moses, who pulled out of last weekend’s 2018 World Cup qualifying match away to Zambia, was on target in the 80th minute to seal victory for the Blues.

Diego Costa and Eden Hazard had given Chelsea a 2-0 first half lead before Moses rounded off the comprehensive win for Coach Antonio Conte’s side.

The early kick-off at Stanford Bridge provided mix fortunes for the Nigerians on parade.

While Moses was having it good, his compatriot, Ahmed Musa, could not make the best of the rare starting role he got in Saturday’s game.

At the end, Moses finally registered his name on the scorers’ sheet when he exchanged passes with Nathaniel Chalobah and promptly side-footed past the Leicester goalkeeper for Chelsea’s third and his third goal of the season.

After celebrating his goal with a somersault, Moses was taken off, replaced by Ola Aina, another player of Nigerian descent.

The match meant Chelsea finished with three of their Academy graduates on the pitch – Chalobah, Aina and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

As for Claudio Ranieri, there would be cause for worries because the defending champions finished the game without a shot on target – the first time since 2012.
