The Blues travelled to Sunderland knowing they could extend their Premier League lead over Arsenal to six points with a win.
And Antonio Conte had Cesc Fabregas to thank as the Blues’ remarkable turnaround from last term continued.
May’s shock 10th place finish consigned them to a year without European football.
“Chelsea have won every Premier League game Victor Moses has started this season.”
But Conte’s men have reaped the benefits of that disappointment and remain on course to regain the title they last won 18 months ago.
And he called on his team-mates to maintain their good form as they head into a busy festive period.
Accompanied by a picture of himself and Willian celebrating Fabregas’ goal, Moses wrote: “We keep going *100 emoji*.”
Like Chelsea’s form, the Nigeria star’s career has enjoyed an about turn this season following three years out on loan.
And he’ll be hoping to keep his place in Conte’s starting XI when they travel to his old club Crystal Palace on Saturday.
