Moses was originally a top striker in his formative years as a footballer, before the youth team coaches at Crystal Palace moved him behind as a winger, and he has also thrived as a playmaker.

''The manager told me to go left wing-back and I can play left-wing-back if needed, especially in a pre-season game,'' Moses told chelseafc.com.

''When I was a winger in the past I played on the right and on the left so it is not a problem.''

Victor Moses was instrumental for the Blues last season, he helped Chelsea to clinch the Premier League title.
