Posted by

Chelsea ace Victor Moses has been re-called to the Blues starting line-up by boss Antonio Conte, with Spanish forward Alvaro Morata not in the match day squad due to injury.

The Chelsea side, which was announced by the club’s official Twitter account, sees Moses start ahead of Italian Davide Zappacosta at right-wing-back following their 1-0 loss to West Ham on Saturday, a game which the Nigerian started from the sidelines.

Spaniard Alvaro Morata is also out, with the player sustaining a back injury and fatigue, according to Sky Sports.

Moses is set to start alongside N’Golo Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Marcos Alonso, with Pedro, Eden Hazard and Willian set to lead Chelsea’s frontline for their trip to Huddersfield.

With Chelsea missing Morata, it remains to be seen whether Hazard, Pedro and Willian will do enough to make up for the fact that the Blues will be without the Spaniard for tonight’s clash.
