Victor Moses says he is “relishing” playing as a wing-back for Chelsea this season after struggling to hit the ground running since joining the Blues in 2012.
Moses spoke to the club’s website on why he has thrived as a wing-back despite having never played in that role before. He credits his outstanding performance to his Italian manager at the club, Antonio Conte.
The 25-year-old has featured in eight Premier League matches for Chelsea, including in their last three against Hull City, Leicester City and Manchester United which they have won without conceding.
He also featured for 86 minutes in their 2-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.
The Nigeria international said he was only focused on improving as a wing-back in Chelsea’s 3-4-3 formation.
“I have not played there before. I have just got to listen to what the manager asks me to do in that position and the way he wants me to do it.
“It’s very important to understand your teammates; so, every game we played, I just want to keep on improving.
“The more games you play, the more experience you get in that position and I’m really relishing and enjoying it at the moment.
“I have got Azpilicueta there, the spare right-back, who is behind me and he communicates with me and really helps me out to make sure I am in the right position.
“It’s very good to link up with Pedro and Willian too. They know when it’s time for me to go or when not to go.
“We speak to each other and we look at each other’s movement to make sure we are doing the right thing on the pitch,” Moses explained on the website.
He stated that the club’s performance in recent matches was due to serious “work as a unit in training”.
The former Wigan Athletic player hopes they can “keep the momentum going” in subsequent matches.
