Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has reaffirmed that ex-Nigerian international Victor Moses and English player Danny Drinkwater do not have a place in his tactical plans this season at the club.
Moses established himself as a key figure at right wing-back under Antonio Conte last season, but Sarri’s arrival has seen Chelsea switch to a 4-3-3 formation.
This has left the former Super Eagles star fighting for playing time with Eden Hazard, Pedro and Willian.
Drinkwater, a £30 million signing from Leicester City in the summer of 2017, has not featured in any competition for Chelsea since the Community Shield in August and Sarri suggested that the England international will not be playing for him any time soon.
“I think the situation is that Drinkwater for me is not suitable for a midfield with two other midfielders. I told him two months ago what I think.
“Moses is more suitable for playing wing-back than like a winger or a full-back, I think. I don’t know [if they have a future at Chelsea]. They have to improve but their characteristics are a little bit different,” Sarri said according to ESPN.
