Victor Moses could make his long-awaited return to action when Chelsea welcome Swansea City to Stamford Bridge in an English Premier League encounter this evening.

The 26-year-old was an unused substitute as the Blues conjured a 1-1 draw away to his former club Liverpool over the past weekend.

But, head coach Antonio Conte has hinted that Moses could well be involved from the onset as they set their sights on reeling in those above them on the log standings.

The Nigeria international hasn't featured for Chelsea since mid-October due to a hamstring injury and despite initial struggles without his services - the London club won four consecutive league games before the stalemate at Anfield.

Moses' return, though, will come as a a major boost for Conte with the former Crystal Palace man an integral member of the Italian's plans having flourished in a wing-back role.

Chelsea sit 11 points behind leaders Manchester City who welcome Southampton to the Etihad Stadium at the same time tonight.
