Conte speaks on Chelsea's injured players


Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has revealed that Super Eagles forward Victor Moses should be back in his squad ahead of next weekend’s Premier League clash away to Liverpool.

The last time Moses featured in Chelsea's game was in their 2-1 away defeat to Crystal Palace in October 14 in the Premier League where he limped off with a hamstring injury in the first half.

Following his injury, Moses has missed Chelsea’s last five games. He also missed the international matches for super eagles.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of Chelsea’s trip to West Brom on Saturday, Conte gave the latest updates on which of his players will be available and those still out.

“Michy Batshuayi has an ankle problem, (Charly) Musonda has a problem in his knee,” Conte said. “About Moses, he’s progressing well and I hope to see him back next week.

Danny Drinkwater took a knock on his calf versus Manchester United and only this week started to train with the rest of the squad. For Gary Cahill he is fit and would be in against west Brom

After omitting David Luiz in the squad that defeated Manchester United 1-0 two weeks ago, Conte revealed: “David Luiz is in the squad for West brom's game.”

Conte stated that the game against West Brom will be a difficult one for his side.

“Last season’s game at West Brom was ‘a fantastic moment’ of which I was proud, but now I look to the present and expects a tough game.”

The former Juventus coach said Manchester City remain the team to beat especially with their style of football.

“It is difficult to think that you can catch Man City with the way they are currently playing, but the top teams have to try to fight until the end,” he added.
