Since the game against arsenal, Antonio Conte has lined Chelsea up in a 3-4-3 formation, and Victor Moses has been an ever present figure at right wing-back ever since. The Nigerian has been superb in that role, and he reveals that he hasn’t played as a wing-back before.

“I have not played there before,” the 25-year-old says of his new role. “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.

“Every game we play I just want to keep on improving. The more games you play, the more experience you get in that position. I’m really relishing it at the moment and enjoying it.

“It’s very important to understand your teammates. 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 or 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.

“Defensively we all work as a unit in training,” Moses continues. “We want to make sure we don’t get caught sleeping in a game. Every day in training the manager is on top of us to make sure we are solid at the back.

“It’s looking good for us at the moment, but we have to keep our feet firmly on the floor, try and keep the momentum going and hopefully win as many games as we can without conceding goals.” He told the official Chelsea website.
