Nigerian international, Victor Moses, was on target as Chelsea beat the champions, Leicester City, in the early kick off of week 8 of the English Premier League (PL).

Today’s victory becomes the second consecutive and a clean sheet for Antonio Conte’s side. Chelsea started off well with a goal by striker Diego Costa in the seventh minute of the game.
