Moses Absent As Chelsea Hold Man United At Stamford Bridge

By Johnny Edward:
Victor Moses was left out of Chelsea’s match day squad that held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw in their English Premier League clash at the Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s early kick-off game, reports

It was Chelsea’s first defeat this season.

Antonio Rudiger scored in the 20th minute for Chelsea but a second half brace from Anthony Martial secured a consecutive win for Manchester United this season.

Moses has made two substitute appearances this season.

United started the clash defensively with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford playing as full backs.

Willian had the first real chance at goal from the edge of the box but he blazed his free-kick wide after Eden Hazard was fouled by Nemanja Matic in the 13th minute.

Seven minutes later, Antonio Rudiger powered in a header to hand the hosts the lead off a corner fromantic Willian. It was his first goal in 2018.

At the restart, Chelsea raced out of the block and had sniff at goal when David Luiz was played through on goal by Hazard’s flick but the Brazilian skied his shot wide.

Martial restored parity for Manchester United seven minutes after the break. Luiz came close to restoring parity in the 64th with a flick header, but he missed the target.

Martial bagged his second finishing off a brilliant counter attack move in the 69th minute to hand the the Red Devils the lead.

Maurizio Sarri reacted to the goal by bringing on Ross Barkley, Pedro Rodriguez, and Oliver Giroud for Mateo Kovacic Willian and Alvaro Morata.

Chelsea pressed for an equaliser and they got it through Ross Barkley in additional time. The England international fired in a rebound shot to earn Chelsea a point from the game.

      He can resurrect his career in another club like Everton. But will he ask for the move? You don’t have to be in Chelsea or Man U to be a great footballer.

    I believe that Moses’non playing time in Chelsea is partly as a result of his quitting the super eagles early. If he had played in this past international window against Libya, probably he would have scored and that would have added to his feathers in having a place in the starting line up at Chelsea. Iwobi receives accolades from arsenal each time he does well for nigeria and I want to believe it warms him respect in a way in arsenal even though the play patterns are different. Anyways, rohr had stated that the door is still open for moses and I advice him to grab it now before its late.

    Moses is responsible for his own slide. The moment a player is out of the National team, for one reason or the other, his club management tends to think less and less of the player. This is what is happening to Moses who was thought off as one of the best players in Africa not too long ago. Now, he can’t even find a space to play for his Club. Moses will for ever regret the day he made that unreasonable decision to quit the Nigeria National Team which, by no means, was absolutely on call for.

    Nigeria, as a Nation, doesn’t miss Moses. Now, we have Ighalo, Musa and Iwobi who, by all means, are extremely potent and feared and respected through out Africa.

  • My advice is Victor Moses should keep pride aside and return to the super eagles now b4 is too late
