Chelsea’s Nigerian winger, Victor Moses will be hoping he makes his first start of the season in the English Premier League for Chelsea on Saturday when The Blues host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Moses has made just two substitute appearances for the Blues in the EPL this term and has been reduced to a bit-part player since the arrival of gaffer, Mauricio Sarri in the summer.
If the Nigerian gets a surprise nod to start on Saturday – his first of the season, it will also be his 14th in 17 all-time games against Manchester United since he first played against the Red Devils in Wigan’s 2-0 loss at Old Trafford on November 20, 2010. Moses came in as a 58th minute substitute in the match.
Moses has won six times in the 16 games he has featured against the Red Devils so far. The latest win he bagged against United come last May in the FA Cup final which the Blues won 1-0 at Wembley.
The Nigerian will also be looking for his first goal against Manchester United.
He has scored 20 goals in 220 Premier League games since he made his debut in the league in 2010, but none was scored against the Red Devils.
