Moses returns for pre-season

Victor Moses was very excited to return to training following his toe surgery in the summer.

Moses immediately had a surgery to correct a troubling toe immediately after last season.

The surgery meant that he missed the Super Eagles squad for two friendly games and the 2-0 home loss to South Africa in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

The Chelsea wing-back resumed pre-season training on Thursday, July 13. He took to Twitter to share a couple of photos of his first day back in pre-season.

“The hard work starts here #CFC,” the Chelsea star wrong alongside a photo of him training alone and another of him and teammate Gary Cahill.

Nigeria international defender Kenneth Omeruo is set to make his first team debut with the Premier League Champions Chelsea.

The Stamford Bridge outfit will play against Crawley Town in a bid to prepare for the coming season.

Omeruo is among the six defenders heading to West Suss3x, and it is all but confirmed that he will be given a run out along with World Cup-winning central defender Fikayo Tomori.

Also, Chelsea’s Nigerian Academy Ike Ugbo might make his maiden appearance for the first team, having made the squad list.

The 18-year-old prolific striker was in scintillating form last season and was observed by manager Antonio Conte in last season’s FA Youth Cup final against Manchester City and impressed the Italian.
