Moses Fired Up For Chelsea Trip To Newcastle

Moses Fired Up For Chelsea Trip To Newcastle

By Adeboye Amosu:

Niger forward Victor Moses is looking forward to Chelsea’s decisive final day English Premier League clash against Newcastle United on Sunday, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.

The Blues who won the title last season are in danger of missing out on a place in the Champions League next term following a disappointing campaign.

Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Huddersfield at the Stamford Bridge further cast doubts on their chance of moving into the four.

Antonio Conte’s men, who occupy the fifth position in the table, are two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

They will need the Reds to lose their home game against Brighton and also ensure they beat Newcastle United to secure a top four place.

“Training preparing for the big game tomorrow 👊🏿 #CFC,” he wrote on Twitter and attached training pictures..

  • Heeheee’ africa best player
    De way u wan destroy messi nd argentina nor be smal o
    I hv de upbeat dat moses wil outshine messi
    Something wil hppn dat day
    Croatia defence is in trouble

  • What an asset to any team! I recall the first goal Germany scored against Nigeria in only 9 minutes at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016.

    Although Lucas K finished up a fine build up play to stab the ball in the back of the net for Germany, the goal called into question Imoh Ezekiel’s defensive awareness and ability to track back efficiently.

    I suspect in the same position, Victor Moses would have done far better.

    Offensively ruthless; defensively astute, Victor Moses is an asset to any team.

    He is just like Liverpool’s James Milner, only that Moses is better.

  • Omosesoooo abeg we love u well well abeg use ur brain bcos of injury i won see u our squadrom

  • @Deo wat are u insinuating now?

    • @oluwa. Moses is an all-round midfielder; deadly going forward, yet with the presence of mind to track back and support the defence when required.

      Not so many midfielders are like that.

      I still remember his goal-line clearance against France in the second round in Brazil 4 years ago when the ball was destined for the back of the net!

      That was 4 years ago, his defensive capabilities are now even more enhanced;as well as his crossings and all round play.

      Moses will truly be our star player.

        Indeed you speak like a father, you know what the little ones dnt know. Am sure this current squad will break record of the 1994.

    • Correction : Moses is an all round midfielder/winger/attacking forward/wing-back

  • @Deo ur head there
    U tok wetin i 4get
    I salute u in chinese

    Nigeria is blessed to have players like V. Moses, Iheanacho and Iwobi. These are kind of players that when things get tough, any of them can just create a moment of magic and win the game for us. It could be by winning a penalty, releasing a killer pass, scoring from free kick, banging in a screamer, solo effort or just a tap in at a crucial moment. I mean, at a moment when individual effort is required, any of them can be the match winner. Both Kelechi and Iwobi did it against Zambia and Argentina. Moses have had many of such moments with Super Eagles including helping us to win the African Nations Cup in 2013. They might not be consistent but they are players of distint class. I didn’t include Mikel Obi in this category because he’s completely a diffent character. He has no moment of magic, if he is feet and in form, Super Eagles are fit and in form. That’s all i can say about him. The only games i can remember, in which Mikel was excellent and Eagles lose were Confederations cup matches against Uruguay and Spain.

      Corr** fit * distinct

      • @Luqmanov, I really enjoyed reading your contribution above.

        Regarding Mikel Obi’s moments of magic, let me think…. Yes I can readily think of 2 (apart from his stellar showings at the Confederations Cup which you already touched on)

        1) Nigeria vs Tunisia, 6 Sept. 2009: With Nigeria needing a win to boost our chances of World Cup qualification, Mikel laid a world class through pass to Obinna Nsofor who raced through and delivered a pitch perfect cross to Michael Eneramo who smashed the back of the net to make the scores 2:1 in 79 minutes.

        The match would unfortunately end 2:2 with Kanu losing the ball in the midfield and Taiye Taiwo losing his man in 88 minutes for Tunisia’s equaliser.

        Still, it was a cracking game of football and the atmosphere at the stadium was electrifying.

        2) Nigeria vs Zambia 25 Jan. 2013: With Nigeria hoping to win the African Cup of nations for only the 3rd time in our history, we faced previous champions (feisty) Zambia in the group stages in 2013.

        In 56 minutes, step up Obi Mikel who dispossessed the Zambians in their on half and then laid a pass (worth its weight in gold) to Emenike who blasted home the opener for Nigeria.

        The match would end 1:1 under controversial circumstances.

  • @Luqmanov, do I have the opportunity to sneak in 1 more moment of Mikel’s magic, please? Thank you.

    3) Nigeria vs Cameroon 01 Sept. 2017: Nigerians at home and abroad were weary of the threat posed by the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon going into this match.

    Would they stand in the way of our world Cup qualification?

    In 28 minutes, cometh the hour; cometh the man!

    Has Mikel Obi the vision read a game? Yes he has. Can he deliver a positive and powerful long range pass? Yes he can.

    Mike’s delicious long range pass was met by Ighalo who did the rest to open what will eventually be a floodgate!

    @ Deo…. Wat a write up, wat a fan……. I can’t stop thinking of de super Eagles and my analysis has drawn a foreseeable rematch in DE nock out stage against Denmark…… History will be recalled but Nigeria will take day day…. Am super Eagles sick, God save my soul

  • Luqmanov 4 months ago

    Thanks! What i actually meant by ‘he has no moment of magic’ is that unlike the likes of Moses, Mikel’s influence is something of a routine job. His passes, composure and ability to dictate the tempo of a match are something of a trademark and not just an occasional flash. That’s why i said whenever he’s in great form the team plays well and we rarely lose. However, having the likes of Moses, Iwobi and Iheanacho in the team is a great blessing and it shows that Nigeria can still win games even when Mikel is not having a great day.

    The reason why I love coming here is that we reason clublessly and focus on our darling super eagles. when the 35man list is out some inconsistent name(commenter) will bring up idea from your comment then you will all know that we have thousand of readers here than commenters. Predict and win column do attract over 800comment at time. But all what am saying is that I love the unity of this great house for the progress of Nigeria football

    Victor Moses is a clear definition of a UTILITY PLAYER ..Playing in virtually all the departments on the pitch except the goalkeeping department ..But I won’t be surprised to see Moses playing as a goalkeeper one day because that young man is blessed footballically .

  • ojo samuel 4 months ago

    guy deo…u dey alright…u are such a great fan with such vast knowledge of the super eagles…moses is unstoppable…he is just electrifying….a playmaker in the super eagles…the only problem I might have with him is humility… remember keshi issues with him…and a player comment about moses not eligible to captain the super eagles…if moses can be humble….guy super eagles is going places in Russia and pls I am tired of seeing iwobi on the flanks , let him be paired with the skippo in our midfield… that guy is our next Mikel…in form musa or ajayi can play his wing and pls wetin be kelechi best position set?

  • There is a conundrum as to the best position to play Iheanacho.

    I think that his football mentality appears to be wired along the lines of the: ‘Retain-Evaluate/Assess-Act’ model when with the ball (akin to players like Kanu and Denis Berkahmp). This kind of mentality is not suited for wing play and operations from the flanks.

    A model of: ‘Sprint/Run at defenders-Evaluate/Assess-Act’ is suited to get the best out of any players operating from the wings or flanks (players like Robben, Damien Duff, Ahmed Musa and Moses Simon) hence I would not place Iheanacho there.

    Not that he has no pace, but he likes to attempt to retain possession, assess his options and then act (sprint, pass, shoot etc) rather that a potential sprinting-first mentality.

    I think he would be suited to a 4-4-2 , or 3-5-2 (used against Argentina) formations where he would operate as a support striker.

    His vision, calmness, passing abilities, timing of his sprints and overall initial propensities when in possession are suited to this role – in my opinion.
