Former Chelsea midfield hard man Emmanuel Petit says Brazilian winger Willian is reducing the efficiency of wing back Victor Moses when it comes to taking up attacking positions.
Petit made the assertions while working as a pundit in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace where Willian started ahead of Spanish winger Pedro, who according to him gives Moses the chance to take up goal scoring positions in the box of opponents.
” Moses wasn’t so good in the game, and that affected Chelsea going forward, he missed Pedro, his regular mate on the right wing. He is yet to truly understand how to link up with Willian who doesn’t offer much in defending like Pedro”, Petit said.
” Pedro is quick to close down opponents and that leaves Moses with few work to do defensively, so he can bomb forward when in possession but Willian is not that type, which means Moses has to do more defensively with him.
