Stoke City boss Mark Hughes says he is the reason Victor Moses is starring for Chelsea this season.

The Nigerian has been a surprise key performer in a wing-back role in Antonio Conte’s 3-4-3 formation and Hughes suggest it is down to the defensive duties he learned while on loan with the Potters in 2014/15.

“I’m not surprised at all [by Moses form],” Hughes said.

“I’m going to take all the credit for all his defensive work because when he came here, he wasn’t great at that.

“We taught him how to defend and now he’s reaping the benefits at Chelsea!”
