Let's hope Moses keeps taking the tablets

Been impressed with the form of Victor Moses so far. I saw him have a good game for Stoke against WHU at the Britannia Stadium last season but didn't realise just how fast he is. He had a great debut against Newcastle and it was a long time since we've seen a player run from the halfway line and beat defenders for speed before smashing the ball against the bar, as he did for Payet's second goal. Moses scored a fine goal from distance away to Manchester City and made the crucial first goal for Carl Jenkinson at Sunderland, when we were 2-0 down. And now comes another chance to impress against his first club at Crystal Palace.

Apparently he's not had a full pre-season and is still struggling a bit for fitness, but he looks a big asset. The crucial thing will be preventing injuries as they seem to have prevented his progress at Chelsea and on loan at Liverpool and Stoke. What's already clear though is that he looks a lot better than West Ham's last Victor, Victor "Is Vic There?" Obinna, who apart from a storming game against Man United in the League Cup, sadly underperformed under Avram Grant.
