Nigeria Player of the Year Victor Moses
is fired up for Chelsea’s eagerly anticipated Champions League round of sixteen first-leg tie against Barcelona at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening.
The Blues number fifteen has posted on social media pictures of his final training session with the Premier League champions.
”Training for the Champions League ⚽ #CFC,” tweeted Victor Moses.
Antonio Conte omitted the Nigeria international from the starting line-up in Friday’s Emirates FA Cup win against Hull City, leaving the right wing-back on the bench for the entirety of the game.
And if we are to make anything of the Italian manager’s actions, he wanted Moses fresh for today’s game against Barcelona, meaning the Super Eagle is in contention to return to the starting XI.
Nigeria have been drawn together with Argentina and Croatia at the 2018 World Cup, and how Moses fares against two of their biggest stars in Lionel Messi and Ivan Rakitic will be scrutinized back home.
Chelsea have never lost a Champions League game in which Moses started since he joined the club.
