Moses, who recently gained favor from the Blues new manager, added his name on the match score sheet in the 80th minute.

The pacy Nigerian winger added Chelsea’s last goal in their 3-0 win against the Foxes before he was subbed for his countryman Olaoluwa Aina.

“When I arrived at Chelsea I told the club I wanted to see Victor in pre-season because I knew him very well and I knew about his great potential. He played well as a winger when we were playing with a 4-2-4,” Conte said after the game.

“He’s a very good player, now he’s playing as a wing-back and it’s fantastic because he pays great attention in defence and can go one against one in attack.

“Alonso always played this role but Moses is a winger. His education is fantastic. I’m pleased for him.

“If someone shows they deserve to play I have no problem, I don’t care about the surname.”
