Ahead of the visit of Manchester City, Moses could not train with the first team on Monday and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is unsure of the player’s availability.

"I don't know [about Moses], if he will be available for tomorrow. We will have another day to check the situation in the right way," Conte said in a press conference ahead of the game.

"We have a couple of situations to check and then make the best decision for the starting 11 tomorrow.’"


After the home defeat to Palace on Saturday, Conte underlined Moses’ importance to his team and also praises Pedro’s performance.

Victor Moses is an important player because he’s having a great season, but Pedro played very well in that wing-back position,” Conte told Chelsea’s official website.

As wingers, they are very offensive and that showed we wanted to play our football. Pedro had a very good game.
