Nigeria’s Victor Moses has been tipped to make his long-awaited comeback from injury this weekend as his team Stoke City faces Arsenal in one the next round of matches in the English Premier League.
Moses has been conspicuously missing in action for the Potters since copping a thigh injury last November but there was some good news about the on-loan Chelsea star on Friday when manager, Mark Hughes, hinted that he could get a look-in for Sunday’s game at the Emirates stadium.
“We have Victor Moses back and he looks sharp,” the Potters’ Hughes told reporters ahead of Sunday’s clash. “Whether he is fit enough to start or not, it is something that I will mull over.”
Having been taken care by his parent club Chelsea, Hughes had good words for the Blues medical team who saw that Moses was back to fitness, in time for the crucial clash against the Gunners.
“But credit to Chelsea, he’s come back well in terms of the rehab they gave him. He’s bang on track.
“We’ll be careful because prior to his injury he was arguably our best performer.” the Stoke boss assured.
Stoke beat Arsenal 3-2 in a thrilling five-goal thriller at the Britannia in the reverse leg played just last month and the team will hope they can halt their successive run of losses in recent visits to the Emirates this Sunday.
