The Manager of Stoke City, Mark Hughes, said on Saturday that the Super Eagles’ forward, Victor Moses, was set to make a return from injury.
Hughes was quoted by BBC during a pre-match conference as saying that the player was ready to make his return to English Premier League football when they take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday.
The 24-year-old, on loan from Chelsea, got injured in Stoke’s1-2 loss to Burnley at home on November 22, 2014 and was initially billed to be out for eight weeks.
However, according to Hughes, he is due back for the game against Arsenal, all thanks to the Chelsea medical staff, who helped him to recover in seven weeks.
“He looks okay; he looks sharp, but whether or not he’s ready to start is something I need to mull over.
“To Chelsea’s credit, he’s come back well in terms of the treatment they gave him. He’s back on track.
“We’ll be careful because prior to his injury he was arguably our best performer,” Hughes was quoted as saying.
Prior to his injury, the forward had played 12 times for the Potters since joining on loan from Chelsea.
Moses last played for Nigeria at the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil, as his comeback to the national team had been plagued by several injury setbacks.
