Chelsea Nigerian wing-back Victor Moses is feared out for a minimum of six weeks after picking up a hamstring as Chelsea suffer a shock 1-2 loss to Crystal Palace.
Moses started the game but limped out of the game after 40 minutes after going down with a suspected hamstring as he charged forward to help Chelsea set up an attack with scores tied at 1-1.
The Nigerian who had a hand in the leveller scored by Chelsea by winning the corner kick that lead to the goal watched on from the bench as Wilfred Zaha struk what ended as the winner, one minutes after the restart.
Back at the club where he started his career, the Nigerian was given a standing ovation by the home fans as the doctors helped him out of the pitch with what informed sources say is a harmsting injury.
Although he is set to undergo scan to determine the severity of the injury initial reports suggest he could be out for a minimum of six weeks, which effectively rules him out of Nigeria’s next World Cup 2018 Qualifiers against Algeria in Algiers.
