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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
