thumbnail Hello,

The Nigeria international was in inspired form as Chelsea beat the Italian club comfortably in the International Champions Cup

Chelsea began their Guinness International Champions Cup campaign in the USA against Inter on Thursday evening (early Friday morning in Nigeria) with Victor Moses starting from the right in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Moses played as part of the trio of himself, Eden Hazard and Oscar behind Romelu Lukaku, who was the arrow head of the attack.

For Moses, the impression he left will have given Jose Mourinho some good feelings about the Nigerian being a crucial part of the Blues team for the 2013/14 campaign.

It was Moses who set up the first goal when he won and started a run from deep in the Chelsea half and  laid the ball into Oscar's path, who curled a delightful shot past Samir Handanovic in goal for Inter in the 11th minute.

Continuously, Moses was a thorn in the flesh of Inter left-back, Alvaro Pereira. He also had a hand in the second goal, though it could be said to have been fortuitous. He was brought down on the edge of the box but the assistant referee adjudged that the foul was inside the box and a penalty kick was awarded.

Hazard converted the penalty to give Chelsea a 2-0 lead which stayed for the duration of the game. Moses was replaced in the second half and his compatriot, Mikel Obi came on in the 66th minute to replace Marco Van Ginkel. Chelsea's next match is against AC Milan on Sunday.
