    The rebirth of Moses

     Just a few months ago, he was on the output from the club. Now, after scoring the game winning goal in a London derby clash, he is making the football headlines in every newspaper or website. 

    Victor Moses, alongside stars Eden Hazard and Diego Costa is one of Chelsea's best players so far, this season. The Nigerian shined yet again for The Blues, this time against city rivals Tottenham Hotspur in their late afternoon battle at Stamford Bridge last Saturday. 

    Spurs took the lead in the 11th minute after an 18-yard screamer by Christian Eriksen, but Antonio Conte's team was able to equalize just before half-time thanks to Pedro's long shot beauty, and eventually overcome the visitors, when Moses capitalized on Costa's brilliant pass thirteen minutes into the second half with a short-distance technical strike that found the back of the net after hitting Jan Vertongen in the legs. 

    Moses became a hero once again this year, scoring his third goal in the 16/17 campaign and at the same time his third one at Stamford Bridge this season.

    Therefore, what is the key for success for a player that has spent the past 3 years on loans at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham respectively and couldn't play regularly in each of those clubs?

    Perhaps, it all has to do with Chelsea's formation shift from Pep Guardiola's preferable 4-1-4-1 to   3-4-3, an ultra-offensive style of playing. Even though, Victor Moses is used to being a winger, his abilities to deliver crosses, make short passes, dribble in the middle are probably the reason why his name remains on the team sheet since October. 

    The player also feels good about the tactical change, as after the final whistle on Saturday, he declared his love for Chelsea, calling the club its home and praised manager Conte for letting him express himself on the pitch.

    It seems like the 25-year-old has finally reached the promised land, following the mind devastating exile, just like the character we all hear about from the Bible.

    Thank God for Moses (Victor) that the comparison is just symbolic, not actual.
