After 1,248 minutes of action in the league, the Nigeria international registered his first effort in the 2017-18 campaign

Victor Moses found the back of the net for the first time this season as Chelsea hammered Brighton and Hove Albion 4-0 in Saturday’s English Premier League tie.

The wing-back’s effort in the 89th minute sealed the Blues’ first win in the league this year after settling for draws against Arsenal and Leicester City.

Moses benefitted from Charly Musonda's clever pass and made no mistake to put the ball past goalkeeper Matthew Ryan after a fine control inside the penalty area.

Willian’s opening goal and Eden Hazard’s goals in each half of the encounter secured maximum points for the Stamford Bridge outfit after a dominating display at the Amex Stadium.

Moses who has made 17 league appearances this season, will be hoping to build on his performance when Antonio Conte’s charges welcome Bournemouth in their next league outing on January 31.

Chelsea moved up to the third spot in the league table with 50 points from 24 games.
