Chelsea star Victor Moses is once again a doubt for the side’s crucial match against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, and it is news that has come as a blow to Blues supporters.
Conte says he doesn't know if Victor Moses will be available tomorrow. There is another day to check the situation. #CFC

The 26-year-old missed the match against Crystal Palace after picking up a toe injury in the win against Manchester United before the international break, and the hosts obviously missed him as they suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat.
The Nigeria international has become a key man in a right wing-back position under Antonio Conte this term, and the Italian chose to experiment with Pedro there against the Eagles, but it didn’t pay off.
Chelsea fans were quick to have their say on the injury update via social media, with many concerned that Conte may need to change his formation against Pep Guardiola’s men if they are to be without Moses.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction to the news…
@ChelseaFC Please for the love of God
