Moses striving for more goals

Cape Town - Chelsea's Nigeria international Victor Moses knows he will be able to force his way into the starting XI if he can score regularly when given the chance.

Moses joined the Blues back in 2012, but has subsequently found himself shipped around England as he went out on loan at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United.

But having been recalled to Chelsea, the Super Eagles forward has found himself in the mix under new manager Antonio Conte.

After coming off the bench in the Blues opening two Premier League games, Moses was given a starting berth for the League Cup game against Bristol Rovers in midweek and found the back of the net in their 3-2 win.

Moses was in an upbeat mood when speaking to Chelsea TV after the game.

"The most important thing is go out there and enjoy yourself and score goals at the same time," said the 25-year-old forward.

"I will keep on adding more goals to my game which is the most important thing."

Chelsea are next up against Premier League newcomers Burnley, and despite going into Saturday's game in winning form, he has cautioned against complacency.

"There's no easy game in the Premier League. It's 11 against 11. It's going to be a hard game for us on Saturday. But the most important thing is to work hard as a team and make sure we get the three points," he explained.

"We've won three in a row now, so we've got the confidence and belief. And we've got quality players that can win us games collectively and individually."
