Chelsea wingback Victor Moses is set to make his 200th English Premier League in Tuesday’s match against Huddersfield Town.

The Nigeria international has been named in Antonio Conte’s squad to face the Terriers as the Blues look to continue their bid to win the Premier League diadem.

And getting playing time at Kirklees Stadium means he reaches his century in the English topflight after nine seasons.

Moses made his Premier League bow in Wigan’s 0-0 draw against Bolton Wanderers on February 10, 2010.

Then he moved to Stamford Bridge in 2013, having shined with the Latics. There, he was loaned to Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United after failing to tie down a regular place in the squad.

And on return to Chelsea, he has been an indispensable part of the Roman Army’s set-up, and helped the team win the league diadem last season.

Chelsea are third on the log with 32 points from 16 matches.
