Former Wigan star Victor Moses is looking forward to Chelsea’s Capital One Cup clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers this evening and has his eyes on the trophy already.

The 21-year-old is in line for his first start for the club against Wolves, having come off the bench against QPR and Stoke City.

He says the Capital One Cup is an “important trophy” and one that the Blues are certainly looking to win.

“When I was at Crystal Palace and Wigan I played in most of the League Cup games, it’s a good experience for younger players to play in competitive matches,” he told Chelsea’s official website.

“It’s a big opportunity as a young player to show the manager that you’re good enough to hold down a regular place in the side.

“It’s an important trophy to win. Winning trophies can help give you the mentality to push on and do well in other competitions such as the Premier League and Champions League, so we just need to keep on winning games.

“It’s a few years since Chelsea have won the competition, so it would be great for the club and the players if we could win it and get it in the trophy cabinet.”
