Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has named Victor Moses as the toughest opponent of his career thus far.
Moses has enjoyed a renaissance of his Chelsea career this season, having endured three spells out on loan in recent seasons.
The Nigeria international has now cemented his place in Antonio Conte’s starting XI, thriving in his new role as a right wing-back in a 3-4-3.
Indeed, Moses has featured in 12/13 Premier League fixtures this term, netting three goals despite his deeper starting position.
The 25-year-old has now been praised by Shaw, when the United star was asked about the most difficult opponent he has faced.
Recalling his experience against Moses while playing for Southampton, Shaw told Tobiias: “Moses was my toughest.
“The power and strength he had… he was so direct and never gave me a second to breathe.
“I was pretty young, it was my first or second season with Southampton. He was, when I look back, my toughest game.”
