Those expecting to see Kenedy and Charly Musonda play in the FA Cup clash against Peterborough won’t have their wish met after Antonio Conte revealed Kenedy and Musonda won’t play.
Conte revealed both players won’t play for Chelsea until after the end of January due to FIFA rules which restricts players to appearances for only two clubs during a season.
Conte said: “For Musonda, for Kenedy, this month is important. They went on loan and it’s important to wait this month to see what happens, to evaluate the situation in the right way and then make the solution for the club, for the players above all.
“We know now that if Musonda or Kenedy play one second with us, they can’t go on loan. For this reason, it’s important to evaluate. Kenedy is training with us only two weeks, Charly only 10 days.
“It’s important to evaluate these players and then make the best decision for the players, for the team, for the club and for me.”
