Moses delighted with last-gasp winner for Chelsea against Shakhtar

The 21-year-old is thrilled after coming off the bench to head home Juan Mata's late corner and snag all three points, with Gary Cahill acknowledging a difficult match

Victor Moses revealed his delight at heading home the last-gasp winner for Chelsea against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.

The Blues, who were beaten at the Donbass Arena in October, were twice pegged back by the Ukrainian champions before the summer signing rose to convert Juan Mata's header with just seconds remaining.

Chelsea were outplayed for long periods by the visitors but now find themselves level with Shakhtar on seven points at the top of Group E.

"We deserved to win the game today. Particularly second half, we dominated the game," Moses told Sky Sports after the match.

"I came on and only played about 10 minutes on the pitch but it was great to get a winning goal and I thought we deserved it.

"The three goals I've scored for the club have been headers. It's been great for me so far so I'm just delighted."

Both the Blues' previous goals came from failed clearance attempts by visiting goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov, a weakness which Moses confirmed that his side exploited.

"At the start, he was bad at kicking out from the back and we capitalised from it. Oscar scored a goal but we just wanted to do our best and we're delighted with the three points," the youngster continued.

Meanwhile, Gary Cahill complimented the attacking talent that the visitors possess and conceded that Chelsea probably would have taken a point heading into the clash.

"At times it looked like they played five up front. It was end-to-end stuff but I thought we did well"

"We knew after we played them in the first game and they were fantastic tonight," the defender remarked.

"At times it looked like they played five up front, the full-backs pushed forward and at times it was end-to-end stuff but I thought we did well, we played some good stuff. But they're a fantastic team and it's a great three points for us tonight.

"We kept pushing like we have done many times this season and we nicked the win. It was a great, important header from Vic, he got another one on Saturday so it's a great impact. We stressed before the game how big a win would be tonight so it's fantastic we got over the line and got a win."
