The Nigeria international was impressive in the game, earning him a place in the BBC Team of the Week in England.

How well did he play against Tottenham?

As he has done in several games this season, Moses played as a right-wing back in Chelsea 2-1 win over Tottenham.

Moses was solid in defence as Chelsea had to be on the back foot for most of the game.

Due to the tremendous energy that he possesses, Moses was also a threat going forward.

The 26-year-old displayed high intelligence in the 42nd to draw a foul from Tottenham’s Son Heung-min which was adjudged as a penalty by the referee.

Willian scored from the resulting penalty to give Chelsea a 2-1 lead in the first half.

Moses had an interesting battle on the right with Son as Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino set up his side in a 3-5-2 to counter Chelsea’s Antonio Conte’s 3-4-3.

With that formation, Son started as a left wing-back for Tottenham but was totally dominated by Moses.

Does he deserve BBC Team of the Week?

While Moses was very vital to Chelsea in their 4-2 win over Tottenham, he does not deserve to be in the team of the week.

Moses, David Luiz and Nathanial Ake are all candidates for Man of the Match in that semi-final win but the next day in Wembley, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was undoubtedly the Man of the Match as Arsenal battled to a 2-1 win over Manchester City in the second semi-final game.

Surprisingly the Arsenal man was not included in the BBC Team of the Week.

Arsenal like Chelsea also played with three men at the back, with wing-backs. Chamberlain like Moses played as a right-wing back and had a better game than the Nigerian international.

So, no, Moses does not deserve to be in that Team of the Week, Chamberlain does.
