Moses Set To Get Chelsea Recall For Crystal Palace Clash

Moses Set To Get Chelsea Recall For Crystal Palace Clash

The U-17 World Cup victor has featured in just six games in all competitions this season, with his only appearance in the Premier League coming against Watford on Boxing Day.

Chelsea's teenage sensation Callum Hudson-Odoi is at the middle of the three-way tussle for his services.

Whether Bayern would be interested in pursuing a permanent or loan deal remains to be seen, although the precedent for prospects seems to be being set for Hudson-Odoi - use him, or lose him.

Sarri has confirmed the problem at today's press conference with the Chelsea manager revealing that Pedro is facing around 10 days on the sidelines meaning he could miss the games against Palace, Southampton, Nottingham Forest and possibly the League Cup semi-final first leg against Tottenham on January 8th. They signed MLS sensation Alphonso Davies in Summer and Hudson-Odoi could be the latest name on the block as another choice.

The likes of Alvaro Morata, Andreas Christensen, Ruben Loftus-Cheek are thought to be fit and back in contention after recent layoffs.

Two problems, the first more serious with Pedro.

The skilful left-winger managed to score in one of his four Europa League appearances so far this campaign, while he also got a Premier League chance off the bench against Watford on Boxing Day. Hudson-Odoi's elder brother Bradley Odoi played for the Ghana U20 side.

Sarri also seems to have settled on a preferred XI, with Kepa Arrizabalaga, Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso and N'Golo Kante having started all of the Blues' Premier League games.

However, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is expected to field a very strong team that will be able to hand him a big win and most importantly avoid a surprise like Tottenham.
