Moses has however withdrawn from the squad because of a hamstring injury he sustained in Chelsea 2-0 win at Hull City over the weekend.

Unfortunately I'm feeling my hamstring and so the club medical team will be reviewing me. Will be working hard to get fit asap #CFC,” the forward wrote on Twitter.
