EPL: Moses inspires Chelsea win

Moses was in action for 89 minutes of the tie before leaving the pitch for Andreas Christensen.

Nigerian international, Victor Moses, was a star attraction in Chelsea’s two nil win over Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Moses was in action for 89 minutes of the tie before leaving the pitch for Andreas Christensen.
The Nigerian would have made the score sheet, but failed to beat Everton goalie Jordan Pickford.
First-half goals from Spanish pair Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata proved enough to get the Blues off the mark on home soil, a fortnight on from their shock opening-game defeat to Burnley at home.
The breakthrough moment arrived 27 minutes in through a perfectly executed finish from Fabregas, exchanging passes with Morata inside the box and casually slotting past Pickford on the volley.
Morata added to his earlier assist with a second league goal in Blues colours, just about remaining onside to head past Pickford when spotted by Cesar Azpilicueta from deep after referee Jonathan Moss justifiably played advantage for an earlier challenge.
Both sides struggled to find any real tempo to their game, with the next attack of any note culminating in Pedro shooting wide of the target an hour in.
Everton were unable to set up a grandstand finale as Ashley Williams’s glanced header ended narrowly wide of the far post and Idrissa Gueye’s shot was helped over the bar by Thibaut Courtois – his first and only save of a quiet afternoon.
