SkySports pundit Jamie Redknapp believes Victor Moses ‘makes a huge difference’ in Chelsea‘s tactical plans after his return from injury in the 3-1 home win against Newcastle United.
“He missed a large chunk of the season with a hamstring injury – Redknapp said about the Nigeria international – He makes a huge difference. With the system they play with wing-backs, he’s taught himself – and the manager’s obviously helped him – to be one of the best wing-backs in world football”.
“It suits him that position, and there’s no surprise that he was involved with the penalty, he’s involved with the goal. I thought he was brilliant [against Newcastle] and he is top class.”
Moses, who was named Nigerian footballer of the Year earlier last month, was crucial in Chelsea’s title race in the Premier League 2016/17 campaign.
