Victor Moses looks set for starting spot at Liverpool

With Victor Moses heading out on loan to Liverpool on Monday, it wasn't initially clear what his role would be at the club. The winger had seen himself used as a spot starter at Chelsea, and although there's an obvious spot for him in the Liverpool lineup with Luis Suarez suspended, Suarez is set to return in two games, leaving Brendan Rodgers' plans for Moses in doubt.

Philippe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge and Suarez would all start ahead of Moses if Rodgers was hoping to use a three-man midfield, but happily that doesn't appear to be the case. According to the Guardian, the plan is to shift to a true 4-2-3-1, with Coutinho as the number ten and Moses on the left.

I'm not particularly concerned with what tactics Liverpool are expecting to employ this season, but I'm very interested in our loanees getting as much playing time as possible at as high a level as possible. If Moses can be a regular starter, it looks as though the Blues made the right choice in sending him off to Anfield.
