Victor Moses aiming to put Liverpool spell behind him at Stoke City

After a poor loan spell at Liverpool last season, Moses is hoping for a happier season at Stoke City.

Chelsea winger Victor Moses has said he has put last season's loan spell at Liverpool behind him after joining Stoke City on loan for the season. 

Moses didn't make the desired impact on Merseyside and was used sparingly by Reds' boss Brendan Rodgers - with the Nigerian international scoring two goals from 22 appearances - but most of his appearances were late cameos from the substitutes bench.

He's quoted in the Stoke Sentinel, saying: "Last season wasn't the best for me. I just want to put what happened behind me. That's Liverpool done and dusted. Now I'm at Stoke City I want to do as well as I can for the club.

"This is one of the best leagues in the world and I want to score goals, create goals and enjoy it. I'm still young, and I've got a long way to go.

"I've got loads to give. I just want to play football. When you don't play it's hard to get yourself back, but the more you play the more confident you get.

"I'm not scared of big squads. I know I have to work hard to get in the team, but I'll just keep working hard in training." 

Moses will perhaps feel he didn't do himself justice at Anfield last season. He has pace and ability but many feel he didn't perform when he was given the opportunity - such as in Liverpool's loss to Hull City last season, and in an FA Cup tie against Oldham Athletic when he was hauled off at half time.

He will be hoping for more regular game time at the Britannia Stadium, with the 23-year-old hoping to show Jose Mourinho from afar that he does have something to offer, given this is Moses' second loan spell since the Chelsea manager returned to Stamford Bridge.

There will still be pressure on him to perform for the Potters, though perhaps not as much as for a side challenging for the Premier League title. One should think the environment could be a little easier for him to thrive in.
