Victor Moses lifts lid on Chelsea spirit under Antonio Conte this season

Victor Moses lifts the lid on Chelsea's team spirit this season under Antonio Conte

Victor Moses has claimed that he and his Chelsea team-mates have been acting “like a family” this season away from the pitch.

The Blues have been the Premier League’s most consistent team this season and are currently the heavy favourites to win the title this term.

Their sharp upturn in form since Antonio Conte’s appointment at Stamford Bridge last summer has been in stark contrast to their struggles last season, when they ended up 10th in the table and with their Premier League title bid in tatters.

And Moses, who has been one of Chelsea’s standout performers this season, feels that the strong bond between his team-mates away from the pitch has been a factor in their success this season.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Moses said: “It’s very important. We’re like a family here.

“We all talk to each other a lot and there’s always a good atmosphere around the training ground, we get on very well and have plenty of banter between ourselves. We’ve been out for dinner a few times already this season and it’s great for team bonding.

“It’s always enjoyable and a lot of fun when we do it [go out for dinner] and it helps us work well together as a team. The dinners have been organised by the manager and all of the players think it’s a great idea.”
