Week after week, Barcelona-linked Victor Moses just keeps on adding more great chapters to the already amazing story of his life.

The Nigerian wing-back was named the Man of the Match against Middlesbrough last weekend, posing a constant menace to the hosts' left flank with his pace and direct style. Never mind the individual recognition though. Moses puts the team first, as any good teammate would.

"It was a big boost for me but the most important thing is the team. We all worked very hard and enjoyed the game against Middlesbrough. It was a match in which we had to graft in order to get the three points because we knew we would go top of the league if we won."

"We just have to keep believing in ourselves. I’m enjoying my game at the moment and I just want to keep on improving."

Another player who has emerged as a key contributor in Antonio Conte's 3-4-3 tactics is Pedro, playing on the right side of the attacking trio. Sharing the same flank, Moses and Pedro's (and Azpilicueta's) interplay has only gotten better with time. As Moses tells it, it's the result of a lot of hard work on the training ground and Pedro getting used to the Premier League.

"We’ve been working hard on it in training. Pedro has been playing really well, he’s getting used to the Premier League and he understands the game very well. He’s enjoying his football, scoring a few goals and helping out defensively as well."

"I like playing with Pedro, we have a great understanding between us and it’s working well for the team. He’s a great player and he’s won everything so you have to respect his achievements."

"When you come to a new country it can be difficult but he’s got to grips with it now and he’s doing well. The fans are enjoying what he brings to the team and we’re all pleased for him."

Moses has faced Spurs once as a Chelsea player, the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge back in May 2013.  He watched the reverse fixture, a 4-2 win for Chelsea earlier in that season from the bench.  He knows that Saturday's game will be a tough and intense battle.

"We know it will be a difficult game and we know how good Spurs are. They have quality players but we just need to concentrate on ourselves. We’ve been working very hard in training and we know what we need to do individually. Hopefully it will all come together on Saturday and we can get another three points."

"It will be tough but we believe in ourselves and we know we have the players who can score goals and make a difference."
