Stoke City winger, Victor Moses is set to be sidelined for up to eight weeks with a thigh injury according to BBC Sport.

“It’s bad news on Victor Moses, a problem with his thigh,” Stoke assistant manager Mark Bowen told BBC Radio Stoke.

“He will be out with anything up to six to eight weeks. It’s a big hit. He had a scan and it’s not good.

“At the moment we’re deciding with Chelsea whether to go back and have the rehab there or stay with our team.”

Moses joined Chelsea in 2012 from Wigan Athletic for £9m but failed to hold down a first team place. A loan move to Liverpool last season was optimistic but again, Moses found it difficult to play regular first team football. Now on loan at Stoke City, Moses has been enjoying his football with the Premier League outfit. Working under Mark Hughes has worked out well for Moses, playing 12 games and scoring 1 goal for the Potters.

A player who will be missed, Moses offers pace, power and a real attacking threat in the oppositions final third. The Nigerian can turn on the style at any moment and has been a sensation for Stoke since arriving.
