Why Moses Did Not Play Against Man City? Chelsea Coach Gives Valid ReasonsPublished: October 02, 2017
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has explained why Nigeria international Victor Moses did not figure for the Premier League champions in their important match against Manchester City this past weekend.
The Super Eagles star put in a full shift in three consecutive matches played across ten days and the Italian manager made the right decision to rest the right wing-back or he would have risked picking up an unwanted injury, ahead of Nigeria's crucial World Cup qualifier against Zambia.
''To play three games in seven days is not simple, above all for our wing-backs,” Conte said, according to Independent UK.
''Moses played two whole games against Stoke [City] and Atletico, [Marcos] Alonso played one and a half games, because against Stoke I changed him after 10 minutes.
''Then you have to try to not put your difficulty players in difficulty, and not to risk this type of player, because Moses for us is an important player, and to play three games in only seven days, it means that you risk. ''
Chelsea have lost the two Premier League games, against Burnley and Manchester City, without Victor Moses on the Stamford Bridge pitch.
