Chelsea Team News: Conte Confirms Major Injury Boost Ahead Of Bournemouth Trip

By on April 7, 2017

Chelsea will look to take another huge step towards reclaiming the title when they take on Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday evening.

Ahead of the game, Antonio Conte has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he’s given reporters a team news and injury update.

The Blues boss was pleased to confirm a major injury boost with the news that Victor Moses returned to training on Thursday and is available for selection against Bournemouth this weekend.

Moses has missed the last two games against Crystal Palace and Manchester City due to a toe injury but the Nigerian international is now back in contention for the trip to the South Coast.

Pedro and Cesar Azpilicueta have filled-in on the right during Moses’ absence but the 26-year-old is expected to get an immediate recall to the starting eleven tomorrow night – although Conte was keeping his cards close to his chest.

Here is what Conte told reporters:

Otherwise, the Blues boss has no fresh injury concerns following the vital 2-1 victory over Man City in midweek as Chelsea look for another win to edge them closer to reclaiming the title.

The west Londoners head in to the weekend action sitting seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham with eight games remaining so a win over the Cherries tomorrow will see them at least maintain that advantage.
