EPL Report: Moses Shines in Chelsea Win, Success Gets Watford Start…Iheanacho, Musa feature

Victor Moses returned to the Chelsea FC line up after two matches on the sidelines with a Calf Muscle strain.

The 26-year-old came close to marking his return with a goal on a few occasions but it wouldn’t matter to his Manager, as Chelsea maintained their seven-point lead on the table with a comfortable 3-1 win away to Bournemouth.


 

 

Moses withdrew from Nigeria’s international friendly against Senegal in march due to the injury but the situation drew criticisms from football fans back home, who questioned his dedication and patriotism.

 

 

The wing back was eventually replaced in the Bournemouth win by French Center-Back, Kurt Zouma.

 

Meanwhile, Isaac Success saw his first 90 minutes of action for EPL side, Watford FC on Saturday, but was it was a day to forget as the Hornets were white washed 4-0 by Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

 

 

In Manchester, Kelechi Iheanacho came off the bench in the 73rd minute in City’s 3-1 win over Hull City.

 

 

The 20-year-old , who made 26 appearances for the club last season has seen his game time cut by current Boss, Pep Guardiola in favor of Brazilian import Gabriel Jesus.

 

 

However, with Jesus injured, Iheanacho returned to the first team but has spent most of that time as a sub, with Pep handing the Nigeria International only a handful of minutes.

 

 

On Sunday, Leicester City suffered their first defeat under new Manager Craig Shakespeare , as the champions were knocked back down to earth in the 4-2 loss at Goodison Park to Everton.

 

Wilfred Ndidi was not named in the matchday squad but Ahmed Musa returned to action, coming off from the bench in the 61st minute.
