Victor Moses recently featured for the Blues in the very first preseason game vs. New York Red Bulls which ended in a 4-2 loss and then against PSG in which he scored a brilliant goal via Fabregas’ assist.
He was one of the very few players in the side who had been having a good outing during the pre season and it was much needed for him as the last two crucial years of his career were injury plagued and even the respective loan spells to Liverpool and Stoke City couldn’t help the winger’s cause.
But one positive thing for the Nigerian is that the age is still on his side and he also has a lot of Premier League experience under his belt and he is player who has got what it takes to make it to most of Premier League sides’ starting XI.
A question now arising is that whether Moses has still got what it takes to make it to the first team of Chelsea or not. However, Jose Mourinho has given his verdict saying that he has Moses in his plans for the upcoming season.
Whether he will make it to the starting XI or not regularly is again a question considering that the position for which he is competing is already taken up by the players like Eden Hazard, Willian and Cuadrado. Although, keeping in mind the strenuous domestic schedule of England, Moses is a very good option to have on the bench.
In the recent preseason game, Moses was seen playing on both the wings in the first 45 minutes which gave the manager some idea about his role on the field and where to use him in the coming season. This just about shows that he is capable of playing on both the wings and might come in handy for a few games where creativity might be needed.
The other perspective from which this situation can be seen is what will happen if Chelsea let go of him. Another loan spell might not be possible, so the only option that would remain is to sell him to another club, but that would mean Chelsea is missing out on a potentially good player.
This preseason provides a perfect chance for Moses to adjust and prove himself in the Chelsea side and give himself a chance to re-ignite his career.
