Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri may be forced to include Nigeria winger, Victor Moses in his side’s English Premier League clash against Crystal Palace on Sunday, due to injuries to two squad members , reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Sarri will be without the duo of Pedro Rodriguez and Callum Hudson-Odoi for the clash against their London rivals at the Selhurst Park.
Spanish winger, Pedro picked a hamstring injury in the Blues 2-1 away win against Watford at the Vicarage Road on Wednesday and will be out of action for 10 days.
The man who replaced him, Hudson-Odoi was also substituted late in the game due to injury with Emerson Palmieri replacing him.
“We have two problems. The first most serious with Pedro. He has an injury in his hamstring and I think he will have to rest for about 10 days. The second problem is [Hudson-Odoi]. It’s not serious but I don’t think he’ll be able to play in the next match,” Sarri told reporters on Friday.
Moses was a regular during the reign of former Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte but has been frozen out by Sarri.
There are reports that the former Nigeria international will leave the club in January with his former club, Crystal Palace said to be keen on securing his services.
Moses has made just two Premier League appearances for Chelsea this season.
