The next seven days will play a huge role in the outcome of Chelsea’s season, with three games in three different competitions to either break or make their campaign.
Victor Moses and the Blues tonight play host to Norwich City in a FA Cup Round 3 replay. This after the London club were held to a goalless stalemate at Carrow Road earlier this month.
The clash will be followed by an English Premier League showdown against Brighton with Antonio Conte’s men desperate to keep within touching distance of Manchester City.
Moses and his teammates will then travel to the Emirates next Wednesday for a Carabao Cup semifinal second-leg meeting with Arsenal. The reverse fixture also ended in a 0-0 draw.
The Nigeria international has firmly established himself as a first team regular over the past 12 months, and has reclaimed his place in the starting 11 following a short spell on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury.
Moses, 27, has made 20 appearances for the club across all competitions this season, finding the back of the net on one single occasion.
