A revitalised Victor Moses is enjoying life at Antonio Conte's Chelsea

It's been a breath of fresh air for Victor Moses under Antonio Conte, as he seems to now be thriving at Chelsea.
The guys address your tweets about Raheem Sterling, Victor Moses and the Americans who could join Bob Bradley at Swansea.

LONDON -- After three years as a Premier League nomad, Victor Moses is finally back where he always wanted to be.

And as he sits in a room overlooking the sun-drenched first-team training pitch at Chelsea's Cobham training complex, there is more than a hint of indignation in his words at the fact he has been made to wait this long.

"I'm delighted to be back," Moses told ESPN FC. "I thought I did well in my first season here, but due to circumstances -- a manager going, a manager coming in -- I wasn't...

John Obi Mikel's benching at Chelsea might actually benefit Nigeria

Antonio Conte has made several tactical changes to the Chelsea defence. The FC panel break down his ideas.
John Obi Mikel
John Obi Mikel is yet to see a minute of first-team action for Chelsea this season.

John Obi Mikel has not kicked a ball in anger for Chelsea this season. Not in the Premier League, not in the Champions League, not even in the League Cup.

By contrast, he has played eight games for Nigeria, six at the Olympic Games (with one goal) and another two for the senior national team.

After opting to play for his country in Rio, it was expected that a direct consequence would be a loss of an already uncertain club place, where the Nigerian faces strong competition from a variety of players,...

Rohr must find permanent solutions in defence for retooled, refreshed Nigeria

Nigeria action vs Zambia 161009.jpg
Nigeria defeated Zambia 2-1 in World Cup qualifying last Sunday.

It is very rare that Nigeria's Super Eagles return from an away game to high praise on the back of not just a good result, but a sterling performance to boot. Gernot Rohr and his newly retooled team did just that last Sunday, warming the hearts of many fans with their refreshing 2-1 victory over Zambia.

Even more exhilarating for fans back home was the use of talented young players like Manchester City's Kelechi Iheanacho, Arsenal's Alex Iwobi and Genk's Wilfred Ndidi -- not to mention the brass...

Youthful Nigeria show maturity beyond their years to beat Zambia

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner says the high praise from Mesut Ozil about Alex Iwobi may be setting up the youngster for failure.

Zambia's Rainford Kalaba, right, vies for the ball with Nigeria's Ogenyi Onazi in a CAF World Cup qualifier.

Once again, Nigeria overcame adversity to open their 2018 World Cup qualifying series with a refreshing 2-1 win at Zambia. Bogged down by funding issues and in danger of missing the fixture, the Nigerian government stepped in at the last minute to provide money and get the squad a chartered aircraft to Zambia. They were rewarded with a convincing away win. More than the result, however, was the performance, which had fans back home buzzing about their team for the first time in years. A lot of the...

Gernot Rohr must resolve Nigeria's scoring issues in race to Russia 2018

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes brings us the latest from the social media world, including Pep Guardiola's latest ban.
Brown Ideye
Brown Ideye and Nigeria's attack have struggled since the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

To hear Nigerian football followers carry on, it would be easy to conclude two things: One, that the team have near-intractable problems in defence. Two, that with the talent available, goal scoring should be a breeze.

Neither theorem stands up to statistical scrutiny.

Since the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the Super Eagles have played 12 competitive games, all on the continent against African opposition. Their array of attacking talent, which includes Odion Ighalo, Brown Ideye, Ahmed Musa, Victor...

Iwobi becoming a centerpiece for both Arsenal and Nigeria

Renato Sanches and Marcus Rashford are among the Golden Boy nominees, but does Paul Mariner have anyone else in mind?
ESPN FC's Paul Mariner says the high praise from Mesut Ozil about Alex Iwobi may be setting up the youngster for failure.
Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has the makings of a quality football player, according to his manager Arsene Wenger.

It is rare to see an attacking player cart away man of the match honours in a game in which he neither scored, nor directly assisted a single one of the goals scored by his rampant side in a 3-0 win. But Alexander Iwobi contrived to do just that as Arsenal throttled, then put Chelsea to the sword with ruthless, eye-pleasing efficiency. 

A few days later, his deceptively unobtrusive but highly dynamic game was again instrumental for Arsenal in a Champions League victory over Basel. His...
