Antonio Conte does not understand why Jose Mourinho did not give Victor Moses a chance as the forward continues to impress for Chelsea this season.

Moses joined Chelsea in 2012 and after a season under Rafa Benitez, the Nigeria international was never given a chance at the club when Mourinho returned as coach in 2013.
