The King Power Stadium hosted an electrifying third round match of the EFL Cup between Chelsea and Leicester city on Tuesday with Chelsea sealing progress to the 4th round, beating the hosts 4-2 in extra time.
Some of the Chelsea players took advantage of their rare start with both hands, reminding their manager what they have to offer to the team- notably Cesc Fabregas and Victor Moses.
All the plaudits would go to the Spaniard, who scored a brace in extra time to help his team progress in the Cup. But the similarly strong performance from the Super Eagles star Moses, albeit not being on the score-sheet, did not go unnoticed by the commentators and fans.
The Nigerian made his presence felt right from the beginning and the winger was a thorn in the flesh for the Foxes throughout the match. And his brilliant 120-minute shift has the fans rallying for him to start regularly.

Surely Moses over Willian against the small London club?

Don't want to be negative just a realist! But I'm not sure I can trust conte if he watched Moses last night and still picks Willian!! #cfc

Tonights game prove things I already knew;

Moses is everything Willian should be. Actually beats defenders and gets into good positions rather than do 100 stepovers

I'd start Moses against Arsenal over Willian but workhorse twitter will disagree

Moses for me MOTM, a constant threat even when 2-0 down, pushing to start in front of out of form Willian surely!

Moses has embarrassed Willian tonight! Tenacious, positive attitude and actual quality at the end of his direct runs! Has to play! #cfc

Moses with yet another world class performance, 10x the player Willian is need him starting against Arsenal

Victor Moses is so much better than Willian.
— Dami (@TheChelseaWay) September 20, 2016
Willian should be nowhere near our starting line up now. Moses has to start, by default.
