Romelu Lukaku and Victor Moses will spend the remaining part of the season on loan at Everton and their arch rivals Liverpool respectively. The deal to take Lukaku to Goodson park was completed in the final hours of the transfer window after Everton sold Maroune Fellaini to Man Utd to then finally complete 3 signing of their own one being the loan deal for the Belgian. But, Victor Moses’ loan to Liverpool have been put in place by the time the Reds played against Man Utd at Anfield. That prompted the Nigerian and other of their late signings to watch their new team beat the Champions 1-0 by Daniel Sturridge goal.
So, the question to ponder at the moment is, how much impact will the transfer have on Chelsea, the players and what really expect come the end of the season. As any Chelsea fan has anticipated since the last hour of the window, we knew it would be Demba Ba to depart Stamford Bridge and head to Arsenal or other teams on loan or permanent move. But, Jose Mourinho reportedly blocked Ba’s loan deal to Arsenal as he thinks Arsene Wenger’s team as title challengers.
That’s a great move by Jose to block the move but, I was hoping it would be Ba being sold to either AS Roma or other team abroad. But, Mourinho to a much satisfaction of myself and others didn’t let the Senegalese to join our London rivals but, prompted him to stay. Instead we gave Lukaku, who is young and still fresh from the penalty disappointment against Munich depart on loan to Everton, who aren’t much of a scare for the top 4 places let alone being title challengers.
I knew nothing to expect about whether Moses would go out on loan or not till around the last week of the transfer window. By then some reports said the club are looking at clubs interested in having the Nigerian on loan for the season as a result of Chelsea capturing Willian under the noses of London rivals Tottenham. But, I never wanted Moses to join Liverpool on loan as he can be one of their top players this season to help them push for top 4 places. We are seeing how dangerous Brendan Rodgers’ team can be after the United win which sees them top the EPL table with 9 points out of the same possible number.
Its been years since the Reds were seen at the top of the table for some time and we hope Moses wont really be a threat when they play against us and also he wont help them beat a lot of sides in their way to challenge for top 4. But, selflessly to the player and for us, it would be good to have Moses score few goals and be in their starting 11 to help cement his status in Nigeria’s national team ahead of the World Cup this summer.
The World Cup being in the horizon come the end of the season will mean a huge thing for both of this players and Lukaku will also want to challenge the impressive and dominant Christian Benteke for the starting spot of Belgium’s No. 9 role. Let’s wish both players good luck on their spells and hope they will return both rejuvenated and ready to challenge Jose’s starting 11 with huge confidence.
Tell us what you think about my opinion and what you expect out of this deals of Lukaku and Moses to the Mersyside of EPL. thanks for reading and you can follow me at @FahmiCFC on twitter for more things about CFC! ktbffh
