Chelsea of England right-wingback, Victor Moses has predicted that his side will recover very fast from Sunday’s loss to Manchester City in the Community Shield, and believes they will go on to have a great season.
Though he apparently has lost his starting role with The Blues, as he played only the last eight minutes of Sunday’s 2-0 loss at Wembley, Moses insists he and his teammates are in the right frame of mind for the impending campaign.
Moses parried effects of Sunday’s loss, as Man City picked up from where they left off last season by brushing aside Chelsea to win the 2018 Community Shield.
Three months on from lifting the Premier League title, the Citizens made light work of the FA Cup holders thanks to a goal in either half from Sergio Aguero.
There was a gulf in quality between the sides, with Man City cruising to victory to win the curtain-raising fixture for a fifth time – and a first since 2012 when beating Chelsea at Villa Park; but Moses insists The Blues must not be written off just yet.
As The Blues prepare to battle Huddersfield Town in their opening Premier League fixture, Moses said his side are looking forward to the season under their new boss, Maurizio Sarri.
The former Napoli gaffer, who replaced Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge this summer, began life in West London by changing the team tactics, but Moses says he is nonplussed, declaring that he and his teammates are excited about adapting to Sarri’s fresh style.
The 27-year-old star said: “We’re looking forward to it. Obviously we have a new manager now, he’s got a new philosophy and we’re looking good in training.
“We just want to work hard together as a team and make sure we understand what he wants from us and do the best we can this season.
“Chelsea is a big club. It’s a club with a great history, we’ve won loads of big trophies, and we always want to do that.
“With the players we’ve got and ability that we’ve got, we just want to keep on working hard together to make the club great and keep doing well.”
