Chelsea v Benfica – Victor Moses must take advantage of Hazard’s injury

Signed from Wigan at the fifth attempt last August for a rumoured £9 million pound transfer fee, Moses has made only 13 starts in the league this season, with only 1 goal to show for it. However, his form in the Europa League has been encouraging in its consistency. Showing some real class, and a distinctive nose for goal in his last four outings, Moses has scored in each. This purple patch, coupled with genuinely solid performances, make a strong case for giving Moses a considerable run in the starting 11.

The problem Chelsea have is how do you drop one of Mata, Hazard or Oscar? Three exceptional players, bought as flagship purchases. Victor Moses does not yet carry the aura that these stars exhume; far from it. From a troubled upbringing, Moses is a down to earth footballer humbled by his good fortune to be at one of the top clubs in the world. Moses quietly goes about his business, but he is going to need to really shine if is to force his way into the starting line. With a new manager coming in over the summer, the Europa League final is the perfect chance for Moses to really showcase his potential.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how big your name is; if you keep performing you’ll keep playing. Moses needs to keep this in mind – this could be his big chance to finally establish himself at Chelsea.

    I think Moses will up his game this time to actually win back the fans who have lost confidence in him. Bravo Chelsea!

    Yes,I really agree with you,Moses really need to rise and shine above the level he is right now,that sparkling performances he used to show during his Wigan period should be more polished now,but rather sometimes it seems in some games instead of being on high level,he was a little bit below his Wigan days,may be Benitez is the cause of it!
