Video: Victor Moses’ Assist For Alvaro Morata’s Goal Deserves More Praise

Alvaro Morata will take the plaudits for scoring in Chelsea‘s 3-1 win over Newcastle today – but Victor Moses should really take more credit for his hand in the goal.

The Spanish striker watched on as Eden Hazard belted home the Blues’ opening goal of the afternoon, a sweet volley to cancel out Dwight Gayle’s early opener for the visitors at Stamford Bridge.

Morata then got in on the action 12 minutes later when he headed home Chelsea’s second of the game.

But he has Moses to thank for the tap-in, with the Nigerian winger breaking past Matt Ritchie to drill a superb cross on to the head of his teammate.

Just take a look at how good this is:

Moses doesn’t get enough credit for some of his quality in Chelsea’s attack and, with crosses like this, he really should.

Hazard got on the scoresheet in the second half of today’s English Premier League early game, dinking a lovely Panenka penalty past Karl Darlow.

Moses actually had a hand in that goal too, going down under Ritchie’s challenge in the box to win the penalty.
