SFG Player of the Week: Victor Moses

After Wigan’s shock defeats of Manchester United and Arsenal in the space of a week, this week’s Sandals For Goalpost’s Player of the Week award has to go to Wigan and Nigeria’s Victor Moses. Against the current champions, Moses’ swagger and explosive power on the ball troubled Phil Jones throughout as well as the rest of the backline as Wigan broke on the counter when he moved centrally. With Jones lacking the defensive solidity of Rafael da Silva, you could have said that it was Moses’ lucky day, but he was to round of an impressive week against Arsenal at The Emirates. Charged with the task of getting the better of Bacary Sagna, the best right-back in the Premiership, particularly defensively, the muscle-bound left winger-cum-attacking midfielder delivered an unstoppable performance. Despite showing some of the weaknesses of his game, such as his frustrating selfishness, Moses gave Sagna a torrid time as he regularly left him for dead with a combination of his streetwise skill and raw power and pace on the ball.
