Cape Town - Victor Moses' importance to Chelsea was underlined after the club's former assistant manager, Ray Wilkins, said the Nigeria international is currently irreplaceable.
Having endured three loan spells away from Stamford Bridge, the 26-year-old winger has been thriving since the arrival of Antonio Conte as manager and has featured in 17 of the Blues' 18 league games, scoring three goals and providing several assists from his new wing-back position.
Wilkins says that when taking Conte's squad into account, Moses would be even tougher to replace than stars such as N'Golo Kante and Diego Costa.
"Easy to play down the importance of Victor Moses but when you look around the squad, he is one player who appears not to have a replacement in the team at the moment," Wilkins said.
"Diego Costa and N'Golo Kante are players you think they can't replace but in the squad they have players who play similar role as them, so easy to replace them unlike Moses."
