Victor Moses vs. Tottenham: Man of the Match making waves from London to Barcelona to Nigeria

New, comments

I'm sorry to tell you, but if you didn't get on the Victor Moses hype train several weeks back, it has now not only left the station, but is close to achieving cruising altitude. Err, speed. Both! Chelsea are flying high on the wing-backs of Victor Moses and even when Spurs huff and puff and try to blow the house down like some pretend-big bad wolf, Chelsea take it all standing up and emerge victorious.

Seven wins in a row now in the Premier League, with Moses himself being named the official Man of the Match for the last two. His performances are not only turning heads in England and winning fans in the SW6, he's becoming a bona fide football rock star. Here he is celebrating Saturday's win with one of Nigeria's biggest pop musicians, Davido.

The winning goal against Spurs was Moses's third in the Premier League already this season. He's well on his way to beating his career high of six for Wigan back in 2011-12. He's getting linked to Barcelona; he's declaring his loyalty to Chelsea.

"I'm very pleased with the goal but the most important thing was the three points. I thought they started well, they scored a beautiful goal and there was nothing we could do about it, but we got ourselves back into the game, we got the three points and we're very pleased with that."

"I've definitely found a home here, it's my club. I'm pleased to be playing this season, the manager has given me an opportunity to express myself and I'm relishing it at the moment. I just want to keep on playing football and enjoying myself whenever I'm out there."
