Victor Moses has missed Chelsea’s last two Premier League games due to injury, and his absence was sorely missed as we lost to Crystal Palace last weekend.

Conte opted to start Kurt Zouma in the last game against Manchester City and it was the 22-year-old’s first league start in over a year for the Blues.

Conte believes he had a good game and also revealed that Victor Moses might be available for selection against Bournemouth.

Conte told a news conference: “He trained with us. I have to check his situation and then make the best decision for the team. But he is available.

“Victor Moses showed this season that he is an important player for us, but in the games against Crystal Palace and City we showed that we can play without him.

“We are a team, not 11 single players. If you think you can win a game with only one player, you are in trouble, because if you miss this player then it’s impossible to win.

“I’m pleased when this happens because it means every single player is into our football. During the training sessions, I have 20 players and I train them in the same way, because I know that anything can happen during the season and you must have players available.

“I think Zouma showed this in a tough game against a great team.”
