Victor Moses To Miss Chelsea Premier League Opener Vs Burnley, Cleared To Face ArsenalAccording to information gathered by allnigeriasoccer.com, Nigeria international Victor Moses might not be available for selection when Chelsea tackle Burnley in their first Premier League game of the new season.

The right wing-back will be handed a one-game suspension by the Football Association following his sending off in the final of the Emirates FA Cup on May 27.

Moses received a second yellow card in the 68th minute and was sent off by referee Anthony Taylor for diving in the penalty area without Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain making contact.

Using Manchester United defender Chris Smalling as a case study, the England star was suspended for the opening game of the 2016-2017 campaign after he was sent off in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace on May 21, 2016.

Smalling's one-match ban did not include the FA Community Shield, and he missed the game versus Leicester City due to fitness concerns.

Thus, Victor Moses is in contention to face Arsenal in the Community Shield on August 6.
