Moses has not started a competitive game for Chelsea since September 26 when he went the distance against Liverpool in the League Cup and England U17 World Cup-winning winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to be included in the matchday squad.Chelsea head into the game tomorrow sitting six points clear of Vidi at the top of Group L so they just need to avoid defeat against third-placed POAK to secure top spot with a game to spare.
