Hoddle: Moses should be worried after Zappacosta’s impressive display
Former Chelsea manager Glen Hoddle has suggested that his former club’s new signing Davide Zappacosta has sent a strong message to Victor Moses and Antonio Conte.
Davide Zappacosta signed from Torino on the last day of the 2017 summer transfer was selected ahead of Victor Moses for the English champions first game in the 2017-18 UEFA Champions League campaign against Azerbaijan champions Qarabag and was impressive.
Victor Moses who played a total of 39 games in all competition last season was one of Antonio Conte’s regular since the Italian manager switched to a 3-4-3 formation but the former England and Tottenham manager believes an end may have come to his automatic selection because of the Italian performance against Qarabag.
“It was too easy for them, I think when you are playing an inferior team you’ve got to show that class and they did that and I think Conte will be delighted,” he told Sky Sports
“The result is good for the confidence of some of their new signings who were on the scorers’ sheet.
“Although Zappacosta’s goal was a bit of a fluke, he was very decent and Moses is sitting on the bench thinking, you know what, I have got to react to this, so the coach wins in every which way.”
Victor Moses who was one of the players rested against Qarabag is expected to start against Arsenal when Chelsea face their London rivals on Sunday at the Stamford Bridge.
