In recent weeks, a number of publications have linked West Ham star Michail Antonio with a shock move across London to Premier League table-toppers Chelsea.
Antonio’s versatility has been a prevailing trend, with the former Nottingham Forest man capable of playing as a striker, a winger or a wing-back. But in the context of the 3-4-3 system that has transformed Chelsea into title favourites, it’s the latter role that particularly stands out – especially on the right-hand side.
Sharing Victor Moses’ power and athleticism but adding aerial prowess and a consistent supply of goals, with eight this season already, the 27-year-old appears a natural alternative to the Nigerian as Chelsea’s right wing-back.
With that in mind, we asked Chelsea fans a simple question last week; would Antonio be an upgrade on Moses and therefore, would they be pleased to see this deal go ahead?
Well, the results are now in and FootballFanCast can exclusively reveal that a staggering 96% of those who voted would prefer Moses on the right flank. The fans clearly think Antonio Conte should keep his money in his pocket for now.
