Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has confirmed that Victor Moses is available for Saturday’s Premier League encounter against Liverpool.

The 26-year-old has not played for the Blues since he was replaced in their 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on October 14.

And the former Juventus boss who is elated with the wing-back’s recovery disclosed that he could play a part against Jurgen Klopp’s men at Anfield.

“His condition is good. For sure he needs a bit of time to recover the best form,” Conte told club website.

“Tomorrow he is in our squad. I think I want to put him on the bench, and then to decide if there is the necessity to bring 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,” he concluded.

Moses has played six league games this campaign without scoring a goal for the Stamford Bridge outfit who are third in the English topflight with 25 points from 12 games.
