Super Eagles forward, Victor Moses, has been shortlisted for Chelsea’s Player of the Year for the 2017-18 season, writes the official website of the Blues.
The right wing-back is amongst the 30 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 winger has played 32 matches in all competitions, scoring three goals and registering same number of 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 Mikel Obi 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 May 10.
