Chelsea 26-year-old delivers West Ham verdict ahead of return to former club
By Matt Farr
Victor Moses has admitted he has fond memories of his time at West Ham ahead of his meeting with his former club on Monday, but warned that Chelsea will be out for three points at the London Stadium.
The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at West Ham after being frozen-out of the first-team setup at Stamford Bridge by then-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
He made 30 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring three goals and contributing two assists, and is set to go up against his former teammates in next week’s Premier League encounter.
Speaking to the Standard ahead of his return to east London, Moses openly admitted he had a great time at West Ham last season, but insisted he was focused on a winning return with his current employers.
He said: “I had a great time there last season, it’s a nice memory but now I’m a Chelsea player and I’m enjoying my football.

“I can’t wait to go to the London Stadium and hopefully we’ll get three points.
“I’ve always wanted to play for this big club, it’s one of the best clubs in the world at the moment and I’m enjoying every single moment.”
Since returning to Chelsea in the summer, Moses has been given a new lease of life under Blues boss Antonio Conte, establishing himself as a first-team regular.
Moved into a wing-back role, the Nigeria international has become one of the surprise packages of the current Premier League season.
He has made contributed four goals and three assists from 28 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, helping Conte’s side go 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League with 12 games remaining.
West Ham, meanwhile, are currently ninth in the league table.
