Nigerian Victor Moses delighted with first Premier League title with Chelsea

The Nigerian international, Victor Moses, and his Chelsea team on Friday emerged champions of the English Premier League.

Delighted Moses on his official twitter account tweeted: CHAMPIONS 🏆!!! Words can’t describe the emotions right now! We did this together! #CFC Family!

Moses played a key role in Antonio Conte’s first season triumph as Chelsea dominated the Premier League and won their sixth league title – their fifth in the past 12 years.

The 26-year-old had played only 23 league games in the previous four years, which had taken in loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham along the way.

But, after defeat to Liverpool and Arsenal in the first opening games, Conte’s reshuffle brought Moses back into the starting line-up and has helped make him one of the most consistent performers this season, making over 37 appearances in all competitions.

Although they still have two games to play, Chelsea now have an unassailable 87 points.

Moses played for 86 minutes on Friday evening as he and his teammates defeated West Bromwich Albion in an away match.

The only goal of the game came in the 82nd minute and was scored by Belgian Michy Batshuayi who came on from the substitute bench.

Following his breakthrough season, the Nigerian has recently signed a new deal with the London outfit to keep him in west London until 2021.

The deal is thought to be worth around £100,000-per-week.

Moses arrived at Chelsea in 2012 from Wigan Athletic and enjoyed a solid first season at the club, helping Chelsea to lift the Europa League trophy during the 2012- 2013 seasons.
