The West Ham winger wants his chance and can get it against Chelsea.
It's a blow for West Ham United, as the Nigerian winger has been a little bit special since arriving at Upton Park on Deadline Day.

But it just so happens that Moses' absence gives West Ham the perfect chance to keep another squad member happy.
No I'm not injured the manager mad a discussion. It hasn't effect my confidence at all I'm going to wait for my opportunity and take it— Michail Antonio (@Michailantonio) October 18, 2015
Antonio is the perfect replacement for Moses. If it were not for the Chelsea loanee, the former Nottingham Forest man may well have found himself playing that wide role, linking up with Dimitri Payet and Manuel Lanzini instead.
Granted, boss Slaven Bilic has obviously felt the 25-year-old isn't ready to make the West Ham first team. But a big part of that has no doubt been Moses' presence and that's now out of the equation.
The Irons can thus grant Antonio his wish and, with Chelsea still looking vulnerable, it's the perfect chance for the east London side to do it.
