Victor Moses was delighted to have made his debut against QPR last Saturday but he would have been happier if Chelsea had taken the three points. And he almost provided the assist for Eden Hazard in the late stage of the match but the Belgian miscued and blasted over.
Moses replaced Ryan Bertrand in the 58th minute and added to Chelsea’s attacking momentum after coming on.
“I played around 25 minutes, we did very well when I came on and I just tried to help the team as best as I could,” Moses said to Chelsea TV.
“Unfortunately we only ended up with a point, but it's still a good result away from home, it was a battled point.
Though Chelsea lost this tie last season 1-0 in fractious circumstances, pundits were expecting the European champions to do the business against Mark Hughes’ side.
“Everyone expected us to win, but that's football. It's a derby game as well, they were playing at home, they gave it 100 per cent and wanted to win the game, but we came out with our own tactics and tried to win the game, now we'll just look forward to the next match.
“We had a lot of chances, we didn't take them but hopefully in the next game we'll be able to capitalise on that.'
In the 25 minutes he had on the pitch, Moses forced a smart stop from the QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar, and his cross in the 88th minute almost created the opportunity for Hazard.
“When I came on we were playing 4-2-3-1, but the manager pulled me back and said we were switching to 4-3-3,” Moses added.
“The first chance I had, I just wanted to take the defender on. There was a bit of a deflection but the goalkeeper made a great save.
“I moved out to the right and Ramires went back into the middle with Hazard on the left.
“After that, I set up another chance for Hazard, but he wasn't able to connect with it properly. We should be happy with the point we took,” he concluded.
