Ian Wright: Antonio Conte deserves credit over emergence of Chelsea player

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has been impressed with Victor Moses under Chelsea manager Antonio Conte

Ian Wright has heaped praise on Chelsea manager Antonio Conte for the emergence of Victor Moses this season.

The Nigeria international has started three Premier League games and made a further two appearances from the substitutes’ bench this season.

Chelsea right wing-back Moses has scored in 3-0 victories over Burnley and Leicester City in the 2016-17 Premier League campaign.

The 25-year-old has been on loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United since his move to Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in 2012.

Former Arsenal striker Wright has been impressed with Moses’ performances under the new Chelsea manager.

“You have to give credit to Antonio Conte for the Victor Moses emergence as well,” Wright told BBC Radio Five Live’s 606 show.

“He has seen something in him where as a right wing-back and playing that role with the strength and the ability he has got.”

Chelsea were 4-0 winners against Moses’ former Blues manager Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

The Blues will make the trip to in-form Southampton in their next Premier League game at St Mary’s on Sunday afternoon.

The west London side are in fourth place and a point behind Premier League leaders Manchester City after nine top-flight games.
