Chelsea boss Benitez to drop Oscar for Moses against West Ham


Bookmark and Share

By Andrew Tuft

Saturday 01 December 2012

Rafael Benitez will replace Brazil midfielder Oscar with former Wigan Athletic winger Victor Moses when Chelsea meet West Ham United in the Premier League in an effort to add strength to his midfield, the Daily Mail has reported.


Oscar


The Mail adds that another reason for the decision to remove Oscar from the starting XI is the on-going concern over Fernando Torres and his lack of goals. Benitez is said to be willing to try another type of supply for the misfiring Spain striker, as well as potentially bringing back the goal scoring touch to Chelsea after two consecutive goalless draws at Stamford Bridge in Benitez’s first two games in charge.


Benitez is also likely to explain the decision to drop Oscar as an effort to keep players fresh ahead of the crucial Champions League match with Nordsjaelland in midweek. Chelsea must win and hope the result between Juventus and Shakhtar Donetsk goes in their favour to book a place in the next round of the competition. If not, Chelsea will suffer the ignominy of being the first holders of the trophy to be eliminated at the group stage.
