Moses shines, Osaze injured, as Stoke stuns City

By on August 31, 2014

Nigerian international Victor Moses was brilliant in his debut for Stoke City in yesterday’s shock 0-1 defeat of English Premier League defending champion, Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Although Senegalese international, Mame Biram Diouf, scored the winning and the only goal of the match through sheer individual brilliance, the on-loan Chelsea midfielder troubled the City’s defense all through the 80minutes that he was on the pitch before he was substituted.

Compatriot Osaze Odemwingie was a second half substitute in the match but his contribution was short-lived as he had to be stretched out barely , no thanks to injury.

Stoke City’s Manager, Mark Hughes, expressed delight for Mame Biram Diouf after the striker scored his first Premier League goal against Manchester City.

Hughes told Sky Sports News: “We’re delighted for the man, because it’s always important when you come to a new club that, especially when you’re a striker, you want to get off and running as early as you can in terms of goalscoring.

“He was probably being a little bit hard on himself in the games he’s played up to this point, but it was a fantastic goal. He took it from the edge of his own box and ran all the way through.

“It was a great goal for him and great for us. But it wasn’t anything we didn’t deserve. I felt by nature of the commitment of what we were trying to do, we deserved that one.”

The result leaves Stoke ninth on the table.
