I feel sorry for Victor Moses – Chelsea legend

Victor Moses

Chelsea legend Tommy Langley has admitted he feels sorry for Victor Moses, who could look to secure minutes away from Stamford Bridge in next month’s transfer window. 

Moses was a regular under former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, but has struggled for playing time under Maurizio Sarri as the Italian has preferred a four-man defence with Cesar Azpilicueta playing as the right-back.

Pedro and Willian provide options further forward, meaning Moses’ chances of game time have suffered.

The 28-year old has managed to make just two appearances in the Premier League so far this season, and Langley sympathises with the Nigeria international, who has not appeared in the league since late September.

“I feel sorry for Victor Moses”, Langley said on Chelsea TV following the win over Brighton. 

“He had a fantastic time two years ago and it culminates on him not even being on the bench.

“So he is someone who will want to play football matches.

“He’s not happy sitting on his backside in the stand watching the game.” 

Chelsea followed the win over Manchester City with a dogged display against Brighton & Hove Albion away from home as they picked up a 2-1 win on Sunday.

With the win, Chelsea moved three points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal, who were beaten by Southampton on the same day.
