Nigerian international Victor Moses was in good form for Chelsea in their 1-1 draw against Barcelona at Stamford Bridge.
Coach Antonio Conte deployed a 3-4-3 formation with Moses at right wing back with no recognized striker against the Catalan giants.
William struck each of the Barcelona posts in the best moments of the first half with Chelsea forced to defend deep and counter the superior ball possession styled Barcelona.
The second half came alive when Williams eventually found the back of the net with a delightful curling shot in the 65th minute but a costly mistake by young defender Andres Christiansen who played an aimless pass across the face of Chelsea goal, was dully punished by Lionel Messi who rifled home a good pass from Iniesta who reacted quickest to the lose ball. The goal was Lionel Messi’s first against the Blues in nine attempts.
There was no further goals with Chelsea facing the task of scoring at the Nou Camp home of Barcelona when the return leg comes up next month.
Moses did very little in an attacking sense as much as it must be said for the entire Chelsea team, but he was solid especially with veteran Spanish legend deployed to attack his position
