Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses has been shortlisted for Chelsea’s Player of the Year for the 2017-18 season.
According to official statement on the club, the Nigerian international was amongst the thirty players who made appearances for Chelsea’s first-team nominated for the prestigious award.
It would be a tall order for Moses to win the accolade with the likes of N’Golo Kanté, Eden Hazard, Willian, Andreas Christensen, César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso all included on the roster.
This season, the number fifteen has played 32 matches in all competitions, scoring three goals and registering three assists.
No player of Nigerian descent has won Chelsea’s Player of the Year since its inception in 1967 and Belgium dazzler Hazard has received three of the last four awards.
Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel won Chelsea’s Young Player of the Year in 2007, while Dominic Solanke and Fikayo Tomori collected the Academy Player of the Year prizes in 2015 and 2016.
The winner of Chelsea’s Player of the Year will be announced at the club’s annual end-of-season awards ceremony, which takes place on Thursday 10 May.
