Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses has been included in the squad for the weekend Premier League trip to Liverpool after making a full recovery from a hamstring injury.

Moses has been out for over a month following the hamstring injury he suffered during Chelsea’s 2-1 loss away at Crystal Palace on Saturday, October 14.

After two weeks of training, the 26-year-old is now fit enough to be included in a matchday squad.

According to Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, Moses has been included in the squad for the Premier League trip to Liverpool on Saturday, November 26.

“His condition is good. For sure he needs a bit of time to recover the best form. Tomorrow he is in our squad,” Conte said at a press conference ahead of the game.

“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.

“I am very happy because now he is fine, but he needs a bit of time to find the best physical condition.”
Games missed

Moses missed four Premier League games, one league cup tie and three Champions League fixtures.

The hamstring injury also prevented the Nigeria international from being part of the Super Eagles in the last international break.

Moses missed Super Eagles away trip to Algeria for their last game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup which ended in a 1-1 draw and the 4-2 win over Argentina in a friendly game.

Moses has made just six Premier League appearances and played in one Champions League game so far this season.

He is yet to score since his goal against Arsenal in a Community Shield in August.
