Victor Moses pounces at the death to rescue Chelsea and claim 3-2 Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk
Showing the resilience that characterised their journey towards glory in the Champions League last season, Chelsea never stopped believing, never stopped fighting despite being outclassed for long periods by Shakhtar’s sublime ball-players. Chelsea’s perseverance was rewarded when Victor Moses scored deep into injury-time.
The winner was created by Juan Mata, swinging over a corner that the unmarked Moses headed unerringly home as Stamford Bridge rocked with relief and glee before the fans then launched into: “We know what we are, we’re champions of Europe”.
Moments later, when Moses walked off the pitch at the final whistle, a beaming Roberto Di Matteo tapped the popular 21-year-old affectionately on the back of the head in appreciation. Moses’s header has transformed Chelsea’s Group E fortunes.
