London - Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has hailed winger Victor Moses for his spectacular performances in recent times.
Moses scored against Leicester City a few weeks back, and provided the assist for Eden Hazard's opening goal in a 2-0 victory against Southampton on Sunday
Expected of an attack-minded player with this kind of skill, he offers adventurous ideas on the front foot. After scoring against Leicester a couple of weeks back, Moses could easily have added another one or two here after letting fly from dangerous areas.
Fraser Forster twice could not keep hold of well-struck shots.

Conte, who has utilised a 3-4-3 formation during Chelsea's run of four consecutive Premier League victories, said: "This role is very important in this system because you must have good stamina and quality to play as a wing-back.” He said on FourFourTwo.
"I ask my wing-backs to attack and defend. I think Moses is a great surprise in this aspect because we know him as a winger but I think he is playing in a fantastic way.
"We have to continue but I think Pedro can also play in this role, like Moses.
"More defensively, [Branislav] Ivanovic or [Ola] Aina can play as wing-backs, but I'm pleased because I'm seeing a lot of positive things."
News24 reported that Moses ended a four-year English Premier League goal drought by completing the scoring in a 3-0 rout of Burnley.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
