Victor Moses has arrived at Liverpool determined to prove a point, believes Kop legend John Aldridge.

The Reds completed the season-long loan signing of the forward from Chelsea on Monday to bolster Brendan Rodgers' attacking options. He was joined by Tiago Ilori and Mamadou Sakho on a busy day of activity at Melwood.

Aldridge is confident Moses has all the attributes to prove a shrewd piece of business by the manager.

He wrote in his Liverpool Echo column: "Liverpool got their business done early on deadline day to complete a successful transfer window for the club.

"There is no question that Brendan Rodgers' squad looks much stronger now than it did at the start of the summer.

"The manager had been looking for another attacking threat from out wide and I think the loan signing of Victor Moses will prove to be very shrewd.

"Moses is quick and skilful. His scoring record at Chelsea last season - 10 goals in 43 appearances - was decent considering he didn't start that often.

"It's a similar scenario to when we signed Daniel Sturridge. Moses has come to Anfield with a point to prove after not getting game-time at Stamford Bridge."


Moses was in attendance as Liverpool beat Manchester United 1-0 at Anfield to go top of the Barclays Premier League table.

"I'm sure sitting and watching Liverpool beat Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday will have put fire in his belly," added Aldridge.

"The Nigeria international will be relishing the prospect of pulling on the shirt and playing in that kind of atmosphere."
