Garth Crooks’ Team of the Week: Moses

Luiz ends 6 game streak, but Moses fully deserves slot.

Midfielder – Victor Moses (Chelsea)

All three of Victor Moses’ Premier League goals this season have been scored at Stamford Bridge

It was a monumental victory for Chelsea on Saturday. Believe me, as a former Spurs player, I take no comfort in saying this, but Chelsea are starting to play like champions.

It’s as though the same players who downed tools under ex-manager Jose Mourinho’s leadership are the same ones who appear to be sticking two fingers up to him now.

One of those players is Victor Moses, who the Portuguese totally disregarded during his second spell at the club and who is playing out of his skin at the moment.

Spurs meanwhile, and quite infuriatingly, continue to struggle to win the games that really matter. A lot was made of this fixture as being the revenge match for the humiliating draw at Stamford Bridge last season that ended any thought of Spurs winning the title. The truth is that Tottenham still have a lot of growing up to do.

It’s all very well boss Mauricio Pochettino insisting Spurs were the better side, but it’s Chelsea who took all the points and were laughing all the way back to SW6.
