Chelsea of England winger, Victor Moses has put aside his slump down the pecking order and return to the shadows of relevance at Stamford Bridge, as he believes six years with The Blues has been glorious for him.

Moses on Tuesday marked the anniversary of his arrival at Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in 201, and says all the days have been filled with amazing memories.

On 23 August 2012, Wigan accepted a fifth bid from Chelsea after they finally met The Latics’ asking price after four previously unsuccessful offers.

On 24 August, 2012, Chelsea announced that Moses’ transfer had been completed. And he played his first game for The Blues as a substitute against West London rivals, Queens Park Rangers on 15 September 2012.

Moses made his full debut for Chelsea when he started in their League Cup game against Wolverhampton Wanderers and scored his first goal after 71 minutes, helping The Blues win 6–0.

On 31 October, was named Man of the Match against Manchester United in the League Cup, as Chelsea won 5–4.

On 3 November 2012, Moses got his first English Premier League goal for Chelsea against Swansea City in a 1–1 draw, and four days later scored his first UEFA Champions League goal for the London club against Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine.

The advent of Antonio Conte in the squad meant he did not go out on loan for the first since his career began with The Blues, after spells at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United.

After impressing Conte during pre-season, Moses was included in the first-team and on 15 August 2016 played his first league game for Chelsea in three years, coming off the bench for Eden Hazard against West Ham United in a 2–1 win.

On 23 August, Moses made his first start and scored his first goal since his return, a 3–2 victory against Bristol Rovers in the EFL Cup.

After back to back league defeats, Conte converted into a 3–4–3 formation with Moses playing as a right-sided wing-back in the following match against Hull City.

Conte’s decision to play Moses as a right-wing-back paved way for a regular spot for the former Crystal Palace crafty player, but that has now changed with Maurizio Sarri taking over this summer.

Nonetheless, Moses is staying upbeat, after missing the first three matches of the season, and insists he is enjoying his days at Stamford Bridge.

Moses tweeted: “6 years since I signed for the Blues! I’ve made amazing memories so far and hopefully many more to come! “
