Victor Moses: Has impressed Jose Mourinho with his hard work in pre-season

Mourinho has a large squad at his disposal and is particularly blessed with attacking riches after recruiting Andre Schurrle this summer and welcoming Kevin de Bruyne back to the fold after a season on loan at Werder Bremen.

Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar all impressed last term and Moses also played his part, leaving Mourinho with some major selection decisions to ponder ahead of the new campaign.

But he is glad to have so many good players and plans to rotate his squad to ensure Chelsea enjoy a successful year.

"Where can I can fit all the players in? I hope to play 60 matches,'' he said in the Daily Star.

"So we will use a rotation of players that's for sure."

Moses has caught the eye with his performances in pre-season and Mourinho believes he is the type of player who can make a huge impact off the substitutes' bench.

"Victor has been terrific, working very hard," he said.

"In his position, we have Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Andre Schurrle, and with Victor, we can change during a match and give new life to the team."

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
