Liverpool‘s temporary player Victor Moses has admitted he has had a rough past few weeks representing the club, but insists that he will carry on from this form.
The Nigeria international has said that he has not been his best self “for the past few weeks.”
The 23 year old’s average form had resulted Brendan Rodgers in leaving him on the bench for a lot of matches and opt to play Philippe Coutinho on the left flank instead.
Moses, however, got a start against Bournemouth in Saturday’s FA Cup fifth round tie and scored the opening goal for his side.
The former Crystal Palace and Wigan Athletic man is keen to score “a few more goals in the second half of the season. He told the club’s official website
“It was really important; I know I haven’t been myself for the past few weeks.
“But I started and got a goal today (Saturday). I just want to kick on from here and try to get a few more goals in the second half of the season. It’s crucial for me and the club as well.
“We knew it wasn’t going to be an easy game for us. They were a good side. But we came here to make it difficult for them, and we got the early goal.
“In the second half, we came out with more belief in the talent that we’ve got. We got the second goal and that was game over for them”.
The Nigerian had words of praise for Luis Suarez as it was the Uruguyan who set up Moses for the goal.
“We all know how crucial Suarez is for our side – he’s one of the best strikers in the Premier League, scoring goals week in, week out.
“As soon as he saw me on the left side, he switched it over; the first touch was crucial for me, then I cut in and had a strike that went into the back of the net,” he said to the official website of Liverpool.
Moses is hopeful of playing a role in Tuesday’s match against Everton in the Merseyside derby.
“It’s going to be a massive derby for us. We’re looking forward to it, we know how important the game is for us at the moment.
“We just want to keep working hard together as a team and hopefully, if we can get three points against Everton, it will be key for us.
“It’s up to the manager to pick his own players. I just want to keep on working hard in training and hopefully play as many games as I can”.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho had commented before FA Cup’s fourth round match that the club could not take wrong decisions of sending out players on loan who wouldn’t play much:
“We cannot make more wrong decisions like we did with Victor Moses. We cannot let a player go on loan who doesn’t play.
“We have to be very objective in our loans. Our players have to go and play.”
With Moses finding the back of the net, it seems that Rodgers would invest more in the Chelsea player and give him more first team chances. The fact that Liverpool have very little in terms on squad strength can be a blessing for Moses, who can make sure of more game time by building on from this performance.
