After three seasons on loan with Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham, now Victor Moses has an important role at Chelsea and he is very happy about it:

“I’ve always wanted to play for this big club, it’s one of the best clubs in the world at the moment and I’m enjoying every single minute” – Moses told Chelsea’s official website – “We’re not looking at the table at the moment, we still have 12 matches to play and we just need to take each game as it comes. We just want to stay grounded and win as many games as we can between now and the end of the season”.

The Blues signed the Nigeria International in 2012 for 9 million pounds and now the player has a lot of defensive responsibilities playing in a wing-back position in Antonio Conte‘s formation.

Chelsea loanee Andreas Christensen was one of Borussia Mönchengladbach heroes in Europa League Round of 32 tonight.

The German side was travelling to Italy after losing 1-0 against Fiorentina at home last week and set an incredible comeback at Franchi Stadium: Borussia was 2-0 down at 29′ but a penalty scored by Lars Stindl right before half-time gave them hope to level the tie.

The same Stindl scored a brace in the beginning of the second half, between 47′ and 55′: ‘Gladbach was already qualified with a 2-3 for the away goals rule, but Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen- that has been on loan to the Bundesliga side for two years- scored the 2-4 definitive goal at 60’, giving his team the tranquillity they need to end the match, becoming one of the two heroes of this special night.

Borussia will know their rivals for the competition’s last 16 tomorrow after the UEFA draw.

“Begovic will play tomorrow? Yes, he starts, he is a Chelsea player and people have to understand this, and for me he stays.

“I understand why he [Begovic] has to leave, but also the players have to understand me and the club. We are open to help him, if there are the conditions he will leave, otherwise, this is the situation.”

Rumours today suggesteted that Branislav Ivanovic is close to leave Chelsea after nine years, with offers from WBA and Zenit St Petersburg:

“I don’t know about his chances to leave, there are a lot of speculations, a lot of lies, but also there is some truth in some situations, there are four days to finish this window, and then we will see this situation.

Continuing to speak about the transfer window, Conte said:

“I don’t know what will happen before the end of this transfer window, if we stay with these players I am very happy as well.

“I think we have to improve our squad with the number of players, because in some roles we don’t have many.

“I don’t reveal what know about the transfer window because it seems you know more than me [he jokes] but anyway, I repeat that if some players are coming it’s to improve the squad, and I will have confidence in them, but if no one comes I am happy as well.”

ChelseaNews24 asked Conte if the youngsters tha have been with him since the start of the season will stay or will go on loan and if they got a chance to play tomorrow:

“I don’t know about many names I read, for sure there is this situation about Begovic and Bournemouth, but he is an important player for us, also in the chaning room, I like his commitment, if we get a player to substitute him he can go, otherwise he can stay here.

“It’s a good opportunity to see players that are not playing very much, tomorrow it’s an opportunity for us and for me, we want to win, we want to go to next round, I try to make the best decisions for our team tomorrow.

“I think we have to see game by game, last game, if we lose we have just the league to play, so it’s really impotant for us to go through. I will start to think about Liverpool after this game.

“Begovic will play tomorrow? Yes, he starts, he is a Chelsea player and people have to understand this,  and for me he stays.

“I understand why he [Begovic] has to leave, but also the players have to understand me and the club. We are open to help him, if there are the conditions he will leave, otherwise, this is the situation.”

The Italian gaffer was asked if Nathan Ake will have a chance tomorrow, and in which position will he play, in case:

“He’s got the possibility to play in different positions, for me, he’s got the chance to show me how much he improved.”

“Kenedy and Musonda are young players, with a good prospect , if we take this decision to stay here, I think the players will be very happy.

“Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Chalobah will stay for sure, Ola Aina maybe goes on loan, tomorrow we won’t see them.

The boss also said that there are no injury concerns for tomorrow’s clash.

And speaking about players that didn’t have much playing time, he said:

“Batshuayi got a chance to show me that he is improving tomorrow.”

Conte also explained why he wants to go through in the FA Cup:

“To have another competition besides the league is very important for us, we don’t play the Champions League this year, it’s good to play more competitions to keep motivation high. This is the oldest competition in the world and for me it’s an important trophy to try to win, you know better than me that anything can happen in the FA Cup, especually if you don’t go with the right concentration, the right focus, tomorrow it’s a tricky game and we must go to win to go through the next round.”

Craig Gordon is the new name to substitute Asmir Begovic, should the Bosnian goalkeeper move to Bournemouth after the Cherries played an offer for him last week.

Gordon could move to London in a potential swap, as Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers would like to sign three Chelsea talents on loan as a bait to let his keeper move to Stamford Bridge.

The former Blues assistant is keen on Dominic Solanke, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ola Aina.

Negotiations are still on as January transfer window closes next week.

Chelsea youngster Fikayo Tomori has joined Championship title chasers Brighton on loan for the rest of this campaign.

The 19-year-old right-back, who has made one first-team appearance for the Blues, was targeted by several League clubs.

Tomori has played for England at Under-20 level and can also operate as a left-back or central defender.

 “He is a highly-rated young full-back, by both Chelsea and England,” Brighton manager Chris Hughton told to the official Seagulls website.

“He is predominantly a right-back, but he can play in any position across the back four, and will give us good defensive cover for the first team for the second half of the season.”
