Victor Moses made a name for himself in his first season in the English Premier League with Wigan Athletic, which secured him a career-defining transfer to London giants Chelsea.

Despite having a slow start to his career at Stamford Bridge where he was sent on loan to Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United, Moses resurrected his Chelsea career with the appointment of Italian coach Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager.

He performed exceptionally as a wing-back in Conte's famous 3-4-3 formation to help Chelsea win the most coveted English Premier League trophy and FA Cup in the Italian's debut season in England.
