Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has brought good news for fans ahead of their Premier League clash with West Brom on Saturday.

The Italian tactician has confirmed that wing-back Victor Moses will return for selection next week, with a comeback for Saturday’s match still too early for the Nigerian.

The Super Eagles star suffered a blow to his hamstring in the Blues English Premier League defeat against bottom club Crystal Palace a month ago. He’s been out of action ever since, missing six matches for Chelsea, but thanks to some good recovery work and his return look imminent.

Blues boss Antonio Conte at Friday’s pre-match press conference said Moses is progressing pretty well and hopes to see him return next week.

Despite missing Saturday’s match at the Hawthorns, the Nigerian could be fit for selection against Qarabag on Wednesday evening in the Champions League, with an English Premier League clash with Liverpool also fast approaching at the weekend.

In other news, the Blues are reportedly looking to reinforce their goalkeeping position by signing one of the hottest shot stopper in the world Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to talkSPORT.

The 23-year-old Athletic Bilbao goalie who has taken the Spanish league by storm this season has the top clubs like Real Madrid wanting to sign.
