Chelsea star Victor Moses started at right wing-back in his side’s clash with West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, but Blues fans weren’t impressed and were quick to destroy him for his performance in the opening 45 minutes, even though his team were leading 1-0.
The 27-year-old was only named on the substitutes’ bench for the Premier League holders’ previous Premier League match on their own turf – a 3-0 defeat against Bournemouth just under a fortnight ago – but he returned to the XI for the 4-1 defeat against Watford last week.
The Nigeria international didn’t enjoy a positive first-half against the Baggies and he was fortunate that Jay Rodriguez fired wide following a poor header from Moses, while his crossing at the other end of the pitch left a lot to be desired.
Chelsea supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the wide player’s display, and while one described it as “shambolic”, another simply said “Moses is a disaster”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Zappacosta has been very sharp, playing out of position. Moses shambolic. #CFC

Victor Moses so lucky to get away with that. The Nigerian heads a shocker of a back pass straight to Rodriguez who rushes his effort and hits it wide. Big let off. #CFC
