Chelsea have continued to struggle without Victor Moses, with the London club falling to a 3-0 loss away to Roma in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Moses, who is nearing a return from injury, has been massively missed by the Blues with Antonio Conte's men to now turn their attention to their upcoming fixture against Manchester United this weekend.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard commented on Moses' impact at Stamford Bridge and believes that the club have missed the Nigeria international.


“Moses is a miss,” Lampard said on BT Sport when asked about the 26-year-old's impact.

“You wouldn’t of thought that 18 months ago with what he’s given them in the right-wing back position.

“He [Conte] is covering it with Cesar Azpilicueta, he’s covering it with Davide Zappacosta but it’s affecting the whole back five.

"And I think he will want to get back to knowing what his three is and working on it through the week.

“The players are going to have to react because I don’t think Conte is a manager that will change his way. He might change players in the team but they’ll have to work," the former Chelsea midfielder concluded.
