The Nigerian was demoted to the substitutes’ bench for the first time after his arrival from Chelsea

Victor Moses was dropped from Liverpool’s starting team against West Brom last Saturday but Liverpool’s manager, Brendan Rodgers has come out to allay any permanent demotion to the bench for the Nigerian.

"Moses has obviously done very well for us since his arrival on loan from Chelsea,” Rodgers told his club’s website.

“I only dropped him for tactical reasons. He's still very much part of the first team,” he added.

The 22-year old, on a season-long loan from Chelsea has started all matches apart from the last and has started all Liverpool’s part from the last one.

Moses scored against Swansea last month in a 2-2 draw and has had to play just behind the strikers because of an injury to Coutinho.
