Antonio Conte’s hunt to find players to make the match day squad to face Tottenham on Sunday has brought some good news to the Chelsea fans.
The Telegraph’s Matt Law has reported that Tiemoue Bakayoko and Eden Hazard have an outside chance of making it to the squad.

While the fitness of Bakayoko is still in doubt, Eden Hazard featured in Chelsea’s match against Queen’s Park Rangers EDS squad yesterday. The Belgian has just recovered from his broken ankle and will likely only make the bench even if he’s picked in the squad.
Bakayoko meanwhile had a minor knee surgery at the end of last season. He was signed from AS Monaco for what the Telegraph reported to be a £39.7M fee.
Chelsea will also be welcoming back Victor Moses to the squad. The Nigerian missed our opening day fixture against Burnley through suspension after he was sent off in the FA Cup final in may.
Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas are the latest Chelsea players to be handed suspensions following their red cards last weekend.
