Victor Moses has been ruled out of action for a month after suffering a hamstring injury, according to the Sun.
Moses joins Chelsea trio of injured players in the physio room after he suffered the injury in Chelsea’s defeat to Crystal Palace last weekend. Antonio Conte’s problems have been worsened.
Chelsea are in deep injury crisis after injuries to N’Golo Kante, Alvaro Morata and Danny Drinkwater reduces their numbers in match day squads.
Morata is expected to return in Chelsea’s Champions League game against AS Roma on Wednesday, having been pictured in training on the club’s Instagram account. The Spaniard will be the first to return among the injured in Chelsea’s physio room.
Kante is expected to return to the first team shortly before Chelsea take on Manchester United on November 5 per Physioroom, but The Sun claim Moses will not be available until sometime further than that.
The 26-year old will miss six Chelsea games in the period. The double header against AS Roma, a Carabao Cup game against Everton, and Premier League clashes with Watford, Bournemouth and Manchester United will go on without the services of Moses.
In his absence, Conte can rely on wither Cezar Azpilicueta or summer signing Davide Zappacosta. The latter is a more natural replacement for Moses and one fans may want to see more of in the coming weeks.
Moses has played six times this season for Chelsea in the Premier League as the Blues lie fifth on the standings, trailing leaders Manchester City by nine points.
