Moses expected to be fit for Stoke game

Victor Moses is available to face Stoke City on Saturday despite a calf problem sustained in Chelsea’s FA Cup victory against Manchester United.

The Nigeria international was taken off in the final minute of the United match but manager Antonio Conte said Moses would be fit.

“He trained well. I think he is available for the the game against Stoke,” said Conte, who added that there were other unnamed players who needed to be assessed before selecting the team.

“It is important to check a couple of situation and make the best decision.”

Pedro is pushing to start after being rested in favour of Willian for the 1-0 victory over Jose Mourinho’s men.

Chelsea would go 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a victory over the Potters, with nearest rivals Tottenham and Manchester City not playing until Sunday.
