Super Eagles striker, Victor Moses will miss today’s English Premier League opener between Chelsea and Hull City after he failed to show up for training on Friday.
Moses was a factor in the 2-0 win the Eagles posted against Bafana Bafana last Wednesday and according to coach Jose Mourinho Moses will not taste action having failed to train with the team.
It was reported that after the match in Johannesburg, Moses was delayed by a change in his traveling plans from South Africa.
Moses, I don’t know where he is. I don’t select him for Sunday,” Mourinho said after training.
However, Moses is back in London and will watch from the stands as Chelsea open their 2014 account with lowly Hull City.
In yesterday’s matches Christian Benteke struck twice to inspire Aston Villa to a shock 3-1 win at Arsenal on a dramatic opening day of the Premier League season.
Striker Daniel Sturridge scored and new goalkeeper Simon Mignolet saved a late penalty to earn Liverpool a deserved 1-0 win over Stoke City and Norwich City drew 2-2 with Everton.
West Ham United beat promoted Cardiff City 2-0, Fulham won 1-0 at Sunderland and Southampton striker Rickie Lambert converted a late penalty to secure a 1-0 victory at West Bromwich Albion.
Arsenal took an early lead at the Emirates through forward Olivier Giroud but Benteke equalised from the rebound after having a penalty saved and the powerful striker fired home another spot-kick after 62 minutes.
