CHELSEA TV EXCLUSIVE: RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME

Posted on: Fri 09 Nov 2012

Victor Moses, our last-gasp saviour against Shakhtar Donetsk, felt it was a deserved victory given the nature of our performance in the second half.

The 21-year-old was introduced with only 10 minutes remaining, replacing the Brazilian Oscar, and repaid the faith shown in him by Roberto Di Matteo with a memorable header at the death which secured all three points.

'It was great coming on, I was only on the pitch for 10 minutes but I was absolutely delighted to score so it was great,' he told Chelsea TV.

'It was the last kick of the game, it was a great corner from [Juan] Mata, and I was there in the right place at the right time to put the ball in the back of the net.

'We came out for the second half and I felt we dominated the game, we left it a little late to get the winner but that's part of the game and we're delighted to get the three points.'

The Ukrainians will probably feel aggrieved to have departed Stamford Bridge with nothing to show for their efforts, and for large spells it looked as though it was going to be a frustrating evening in west London.

Moses paid tribute to the quality in the Shakhtar side, and believes overcoming such a talented outfit merely makes the victory all the more satisfying.

'You can see they're a great side,' he explained. 'They've been together for many years; they had some chances in the first half but couldn't take them.

'I think they're one of the best sides in Europe if you look at the quality players they have, they've got quite a few Brazilians in the side and you can see that by the way they played against us. It was a great game and a great win for us.'

It's now two goals in successive games for Moses, who continues to improve with every performance, and three in total during his brief time at the club.

Each one of those goals has come with his head, and while he is keen to start scoring with his feet once again, his immediate concern in terms of the Champions League is the trip to Juventus in a fortnight's time.

'Hopefully soon I'll start scoring with my feet as well, but that's part of the game, whether you score with your head, back or whatever, they all count,' he said.

'I think I scored one goal with my head when I was at Wigan, at Crystal Palace I'm not too sure, but I always score with my feet.

'We've still got a few games to go, Juventus will be crucial, all the boys are looking forward to it but we need to just take each game as it comes and try to get the three points.'
