Jamie Redknapp was given a torrent of abuse after referring to Nigerian Victor Moses, 25, as a “young English talent getting a chance” at Chelsea.
The pundit made the comment as part of Sky Sports’ coverage of the Blues’ 2-0 victory at Southampton and was promptly ridiculed on Twitter for his big blunder.

Moses, meanwhile has admitted he is enjoying his new wing-back role and thanked his team-mates for helping him adapt so easily.
“I have not played there before but I have just got to listen to what the manager asks me to do in that position, and the way he wants me to do it,” Moses said.
“Every game we play I just want to keep on improving. The more games you play, the more experience you get in that position. I’m really relishing it at the moment and enjoying it.
“It’s very important to understand your team-mates. I have got Cesar Azpilicueta there, the spare right-back, who is behind me, and he communicates with me and really helps me out to make sure I am in the right position.
“Defensively we all work as a unit in training and every day in training the manager is on top of us to make sure we are solid. He’s also very helpful on the touchline. He talks to you to make sure you’re in the right position.
