Victor Moses should be given another chance at Chelsea

It's fair to say that since Victor Moses moved to Chelsea from Wigan Athletic four years ago, things haven't quite worked out for him.

He hasn't played a league game for the Blues since 2013, and has spent three seasons away on loan.

Whilst at Crystal Palace as a youngster, Moses was considered a bit of a wonderkid, and was regularly linked with some of England's top clubs. However, despite impressing at Wigan, the winger still hasn't quite fulfilled his true potential.

The 25-year-old is now back at Stamford Bridge after completing a loan spell at West Ham United, and it might be time for him to get another chance at Chelsea under new manager Antonio Conte.

Moses has been included in Chelsea's squad for the pre-season tour of America, and is currently with the team in Austria, where he has been the standout performer in friendlies with Rapid Vienna and FC Wolfsberger.

Though his spells at West Ham, Stoke City, and Liverpool haven't bought about the success the Nigerian international would have hoped for, he has still produced moments of quality. If he can he can create moments like this on a more consistent basis, he can still be a success at Chelsea.

It appears that Conte is willing to give everyone a chance to impress in pre-season, given the number of younger players in his squad. The former Juventus boss has also announced that Juan Cuadrado will be at Chelsea this season after a season on loan in Italy, and he may be prepared to give Moses a similar opportunity.

Moses' versatility could also prove to be a crucial asset at Chelsea this season. Although he has played most of his football as a winger, he is more than capable of playing as a striker.

Given that Chelsea only have three natural centre forwards in Diego Costa, Michy Batshuayi, and Loic Remy, Moses might be needed as a backup option.

From what he showed as manager of Italy, Conte won't pick players based on reputation, so if Moses impresses him, he will be in the team.

Chelsea have grown a reputation in recent years for loaning out players who will never actually play in the first team, but with Conte in charge, and Moses with a point to prove, he could be the man to buck that trend.
