Conte’s first choice set to battle with Pedro and Willian in right-wing position

Former Super Eagles winger Victor Moses is optimistic of returning to the starting line up under new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Victor Moses was part of the pivot to the 3:4:3 formation of then manager Antonio Conte who converted the right- winger to a right-back to support César Azpilicueta and Willian in both attack and defense.

He was placed above former heldentenor player Ivanovic who later left for Russia as he could not challenge Moses in that position.

Moses already got adapted to defending which perhaps changed his mentality from being an attacker to a defender but the Italian boss wants him to return to what made him catch the eyes of the Blues while at Wigan.

The 59-year-old manager came in to change the formation and started players who got adapted to his possessive football but Moses was however left out in the bench and has only been used once in four matches so far in the league.

However, the former WestHam and Wigan attacker is very positive about starting in the 4:3:3 formation.

Currently, only Willian and Pedro play in that wing so the Nigerian international has found himself below Willian and Pedro in Sarri’s pecking order.

Chelsea will face PAOK on Thursday which means some players would be rotated to avoid fatigue starting from the match against Cardiff.

Do you think Moses is good enough to start ahead of Willian and Pedro?
