Victor Moses out for 4 weeks with hamstring injury



-Chelsea looses Victor Moses to hamstring injury.

-The winger is expected to be out for up to 4 weeks.

Chelsea star, Victor Moses has been ruled out of action for up to four weeks with a hamstring injury he suffered in the surprise 2-1 loss at Crystal Palace on Saturday, October 14.

An initial scan by Chelsea’s medical team, put the recovery time for Victor Moses at a minimum of four weeks which means he will miss the champions league game against Roma, as well as premier league games against Watford and Manchester United.

The hamstring injury sees Moses join the likes of  N’Golo Kante and Alvara Morata on Chelsea’s treatment table.

Though Morata faces a fitness race ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League clash against Roma on Wednesday, Kante is set to be out of action for the rest of October.

Speaking about the injury to his players, Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte said: “I think, in this moment, for us it’s a very difficult moment. When you start a game without Morata and without Kante, it’s not simple.”

“Above all if, during the game, another important player in your team has an injury too like Moses. I hope to have him back very soon because this moment is very difficult for us.”

“To lose three or four players, it’s a big problem for us. But, despite this, we have to find the will to fight.

“I think this season will be very difficult and, for this reason, we have to put 150% in.

“It’s not enough to put 100 percent in like last season. I think this season, me first, the staff and the players have to put in 150 percent because the season will be very difficult.

“We want to try and be competitive in all competitions, but it won’t be easy.

“For sure Moses is out because he’s injured. I don’t know if his injury is serious or not. I hope not.

“Kante and Drinkwater are still out, and I hope to have Morata back for this (Roma) game.”
