Can Victor Moses be the game changer? (Video)

Victor Moses’ move from Wigan to Chelsea was seen as one of the stranger moves of the Summer Transfer Window, supposedly to be back up to the likes of Eden Hazard and Oscar who had already signed on at the club. However, considering his impact (albeit off the bench) so far this season, he could be one of Chelsea’s most dangerous weapons throughout the season.

The winger’s goal to win the crucial tie against Shakhtar Donetsk was his third in three games, and gives Roberto Di Matteo something to think of ahead of his side’s Premier League encounter against Liverpool this Sunday. His rise to success, first at Crystal Palace, and then at Wigan lead Chelsea to sign him, and his unpredictability, and ‘no fear’ attitude could really be a game changer.

“Chelsea had Mata, Oscar and Hazard, who all want to play No 10. They appear to lack real width” said John Motson, talking of the game earlier in the season against Stoke.

 With this talented, yet narrow, trio behind the struggling Fernando Torres, the winger’s direct running at defenders, will give plenty of teams, something completely different to think about. Chelsea have started with the 4-2-3-1 in every game this season, and on most occasions it has been Oscar, Mata, and Hazard behind the lone Striker. While this has been effective looking at the League table, how long can this last? Firstly, there’s the risk of fatigue, and secondly, surely teams will be able to set up their side appropriately in the future for the threat posed by the three young playmakers.

Furthermore, in games where Moses is deployed as a winger, he will give natural width to the side, allowing the likes of Oscar/Hazard/Mata more space in the centre of the park. £9 million was the eventual fee agreed for the Nigerian winger, but in today’s market, for a dangerous impact sub, or even a starter in certain games; it may just end up being one of the better deals of the summer.

“He comes from Norbury, he parted the Red Sea”, sang Crystal Palace fans about their former prized possession, and while I doubt he has such biblical powers, opposition defences may be parted for years to come at Stamford Bridge.
