Chelsea continued their push for a top-four finish with a crucial 2-1 win at Burnley on Thursday.
Antonio Conte made six changes from the side that beat Southampton at the weekend. Eden Hazard dropped to the bench, Emerson was brought in for Marcos Alonso, and Olivier Giroud paired with Alvaro Morata in a two-man attack. Chelsea took the lead on 20 minutes when Victor Moses' cross deflected off Burnley defender Kevin Long and over the line for an own-goal. After Alvaro Morata missed a one-on-one chance with Nick Pope earlier in the second-half, the Clarets equalized when Johan Berg Gudmunddson's shot took a deflection off Ashley Barnes and nestled into the bottom corner. However, the visitors got the decisive goal five minutes later. Emerson provided the cross for Moses, who collected the ball and smashed it home at the near post. Chelsea now trail fourth-placed Tottenham by five points with four matches remaining. Apr 19 - 5:32 PM

Victor Moses is set to make his return from injury when Chelsea travel to Liverpool on Saturday.

The Nigeria international has not featured since suffering a hamstring injury in October, but manager Antonio Conte has revealed Moses will be included in the matchday squad at Anfield. However, given his length of absence, it's unlikely he will make the starting XI. Conte, speaking at his pre-match press conference, said: "Tomorrow Moses is in our squad. I think I want to put him on the bench, and then to decide if there is the necessity to put him on or not." Davide Zappacosta is expected to start at right wing-back, while Moses will challenge to regain his place once fully fit.

Victor Moses is closing in on a return to first-team action following almost a month on the sidelines because of a hamstring injury.

The Nigeria international suffered the injury during the first-half of the 2-1 loss at Crystal Palace on October 14 and has not featured since. Chelsea manager Antonio Conte revealed last week that Moses' injury was worse than initially thought, saying: "We have to wait and have patience. He needs more time before he recovers." However, the 26-year-old has raised hopes that he could be available before the end of the month after returning to outdoor training at Cobham on Thursday. If next Saturday's game at West Brom comes too soon for Moses, he could potentially make his return against Qarabag in the Champions League on November 22. Davide Zappacosta will continue to start at right wing-back until Moses returns.

Chelsea will once again be without Victor Moses when they travel to Bournemouth on Saturday.

Moses suffered a hamstring injury suffered in the 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace and as expected will miss out this weekend. "Moses is out," manager Antonio Conte in his pre-match press conference. "For him we must have patience before seeing him back in the team." Based on the most recent timeline provided, Moses will likely be sidelined until after the November international break. His absence this weekend could see Cesar Azpilicueta deputize at right wing-back for a second straight match, while the other option would be Davide Zappacosta.

The latest reports suggest Victor Moses will miss the next month, at least, after limping off at Selhurst Park with a suspected hamstring strain.

The wing-back was handed a recall against the leagues bottom side on Saturday but lasted less than 45 minutes after being forced off before the interval clutching the back of his right thigh. Moses was immediately ruled out of the Champions League tie against Roma, while tests to ascertain the severity of his injury are ongoing. "For sure Moses is out because of his injury," Conte revealed. "I don’t know if it’s serious, I hope not." He joins a growing injury list which includes Danny Drinkwater [calf] and N’Golo Kante [hamstring] while it is hoped that Alvaro Morata can recover in double quick time after he was diagnosed with a grade two myofascial hamstring injury. Former Torino and Italian national team full-back Davide Zappacosta is expected deputise for the hamstrung Moses.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says Victor Moses did not feature in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City because the Nigeria international needed rest.

Antonio Rudgier, Gary Cahill and Andreas Christensen started in central defense and Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta as wingbacks against Pep Guardiola’s side. While the defensive changes appeared to be a tactical attempt to slow down the dangerous Manchester City attack, Conte explained his decision to leave Moses on the substitute's bench was purely to give the right wingback rest amid fixture congestion. "To play three games in seven days is not simple, above all for our wing-backs," Conte explained. "Moses played two whole games against Stoke [City] and Atletico...because Moses for us is an important player, and to play three games in only seven days, it means that you risk."

Chelsea have added Torino right-back Davide Zappacosta for a reported £23m, plus add-ons, after missing out on Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The 25-year-old moves to Stamford Bridge where he will be reunited with manager Antonio Conte—who handed the right-back his first international call up for Italy in 2016. Highly rated for his attacking capabilities, Zappacosta grabbed five assists and created 41 chances in 29 Serie A appearances for Torino last season. His arrival will see Chelsea address one of their biggest needs, as Conte will now have a third option at wingback along with Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses. Zappacosta will go head-to-head with Moses for place in the starting XI and has the potential to be a solid contributor in fantasy. He's someone to keep an eye on in all fantasy formats and worth a pick up in draft leagues, specifically those award points for peripheral metrics (crosses, interceptions, etc.)

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will deploy a reshuffled defense against Burnley on Saturday with wingback Victor Moses suspended.

Moses is unavailable with a suspension having picked up a red card against Arsenal in the FA Cup final at the end of last season. This means Cesar Azpilicueta will likely deputize for Moses at right-wingback, while Antonio Rudiger could be handed his full Chelsea debut alongside David Luiz and Gary Cahill at center back. When asked if Rudiger will start at his pre-match press conference, Antonio Conte said: "(Rudiger) Yes, could be. The reason Moses will miss for one game. Could be an opportunity to start the game for Rudiger." While Moses' absence means the Premier League champions will deploy a changed defense, a clean sheet looks likely against a Burnley side that poor away from Turf Moor last season.

Chris Green of the Nigeria Football Federation confirms Victor Moses has been omitted from the squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa because of injury.

The absence of the Chelsea winger raised a few eyebrows when the Super Eagles announced their squad for the Group E opener. Speaking to KweséESPN Green revealed Moses "has been carrying a toe injury for a while and has surgery scheduled for it." Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr is aware of the situation and decided "it was best to let him have his surgery now so he can be ready for the new season." Moses will miss the opening game of the 2017/18 season following his sending-off, for two bookable offences, in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal but he will be available for the curtain raiser seven days earlier when Chelsea face their rivals again in the Community Shield.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has confirmed that Victor Moses is available after recovering from a toe injury.

Moses, a surprise star of Chelsea's season, missed the defeat to Crystal Palace last Saturday and then failed to recover in time for the 2-1 victory over Manchester City on Wednesday. But the Nigerian international has since returned to training, and could return to the starting XI against the Cherries on Saturday. "He [Moses] trained with us yesterday and today but I need to check the situation to make the best decision. He is available. There are no other injuries," Conte said on Friday. The inclusion of Moses would see Cesar Azpilicueta return to a center-back role, with Kurt Zouma then likely dropped to the bench.

Victor Moses has joined up with his international teammates in London, although he is expected to leave the group because of injury.

Moses had been a doubt during the build-up to the game versus Stoke, but the Chelsea winger managed to come through 70 minutes at the Bet365 Stadium as the champions elect secured another valuable three-points on the road. However, following the game, Chelsea informed the Nigerian Football Federation that Moses was struggling with a minor calf injury and the 26-year-old is expected to be withdrawn from the squad for the upcoming friendlies against Senegal and Burkina Faso. The extent of the problem is not yet known, but with Eden Hazard [also calf] facing a race against time to be fit for game week 30 [vs Crystal Palace], Antonio Conte can ill-afford to lose another one of his star performers.

A year ago, Victor Moses' future at Chelsea looked dim; now, the winger has signed a new contract through the 2021 season.

The Nigerian international has found his niche as a right wing-back in manager Antonio Conte's vaunted 3-4-3 system with Moses starting every Premier League match since October 1 against Hull City. Following loans at Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham in previous seasons, Moses seems to have found his place at Stamford Bridge: "I feel very excited. I’m delighted to be here for another few years now and to sign a new deal. Now it’s time to concentrate on the team and keep working hard to make sure we win games and try to win the Premier League this season. We’re having a great season, I’m enjoying my football and we have a good manager here that has given every single one of us confidence."

Chelsea had to come from behind but they secured a 2-1 victory on the strength of goals from Pedro and Victor Moses.

Spurs started off the better team with Harry Kane seeing a goal disallowed for offsides with ten minutes. Shortly thereafter Christian Eriksen scored from distance to put the visitors up a goal. Pedro equalized before halftime from a Matic assist. That left another player reborn under Antonio Conte to decide it as Victor Moses scored in the 51st minute. The win restored the Blues to the top of the table after City and Liverpool had won earlier in the day.

Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel shined for Nigeria's in their 3-1 win over Algeria in World Cup qualification on Saturday night.

Victor Moses opened the scoring while Mikel, who captained Nigeria, doubled the lead a few minutes before half time. Algeria would cut into lead when Nabil Bentaleb scored on 67 minutes, but Moses struck again to seal his brace with a goal in stoppage time. Moses, who has started the last five Premier League matches for Chelsea, demonstrated yet again why he's become a favorite of Antonio Conte as of late. Moses will look to extent his run of impressive performances when Chelsea face Middlesbrough in Week 12.

Victor Moses scored a goal on two shots on target in Chelsea's 3-0 victory over Leicester City on Saturday.

Moses was in prime form in his second start of the season, playing as a wing-back in Conte's 3-4-3 system. Throughout the match he was menace on the right flank, which saw him play an intricate role in Chelsea's first goal - scored by Diego Costa - and his own in the 80th minute. Moses' effectiveness finally bore personal rewards when he played a brilliant 1-2 with Nathaniel Chalobah to score his second this season. Moses looks set to play a big role moving forward after another strong performance.
