Antonio Conte told to start Victor Moses ahead of Chelsea summer signing
The Chelsea manager should start Victor Moses ahead of Davide Zappacosta, according to Ian Wright
Ian Wright has urged Antonio Conte to start Victor Moses ahead of Davide Zappacosta in the Chelsea team.
The Nigeria international was a regular in the Chelsea team throughout their title-winning campaign.
Moses was previously out of favour at Stamford Bridge but Conte opted to make Moses an automatic starter.
The African star scored two goals and made three assists throughout the 2016-17 campaign under Conte.
Moses has endured some injury problems during the current campaign to allow Zappacosta a chance to shine.
Chelsea signed the Italian full-back in the summer transfer window from Serie A outfit Torino.
Zappacosta has featured in 10 Premier League games to provide Moses with some substantial competition.
Former Arsenal striker Wright believes Moses merits a place in Conte’s team ahead of the summer signing.
“I don’t get Zappacosta ahead of Moses,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live. “I don’t understand why he sometimes starts ahead of him.
“I know Moses had injuries. He was outstanding. He did a lot for Chelsea. Zappacosta is trying to find his way.
“I don’t understand why goes for him ahead of Moses.”
Chelsea won the Premier League title last term under Conte after finishing seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues signed six players in the summer transfer window to bolster their squad ahead of a return to the Champions League.
