Moses Chases First FA Cup Goal In Two Years, Kayode Eyes First 2018 LaLiga Start

By Johnny Edward: Victor Moses will hope to end his goal drought of two years in the English FA Cup when Chelsea take on Hull City in the fifth round of the competition on Friday night at Stamford Bridge, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The Nigerian international who has scored six times in the competition last scored a goal in the FA Cup in West Ham’s 5-1 demolition of Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on February 21, 2016.

The 27-year-old was then on loan at West Ham from Chelsea.

If Moses gets Antonio Conte’s nod to play tonight, it would be his 30th appearance in the competition since he made his FA Cup debut 10 years ago, coming on as a substitute in Crystal Palace’s 2-0 loss at Vicarage Road to Watford.

In Spain, it remains to be seen if Olanrewaju Kayode will make his first appearance for Girona in 2018 when they host Leganes on Friday.

Kayode, who has made 12 La Liga Santander appearances since joining Girona on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City, last featured for the club on the 21st of December in their 4-1 defeat to Eibar.

In Germany, Leon Balogun is in line to make his ninth Bundesliga apprearance for Mainz 05 on Friday when they travel to Berlin to face Hertha Berlin.

Balogun has been a bit-part player for Mainz this season due to injury.

If Balogun gets the chance to feature it will be his 70th appearance in the German Bundesliga since he made his debut.
