  CHELSEA will be without Victor Moses against Hull City – because Jose Mourinho doesn't know where he is.

The former Crystal Palace striker has been on international duty with Nigeria in South Africa and had still not reported back for training today (Friday).

That rules him out of the Blues manager's plans, with Cesar Azpilicueta also likely to be left out because of a tiring trip to Ecuador with Spain in midweek. David Luiz has a knock and Juan Mata is also a doubt.

“Luiz is injured and he couldn’t play for Brazil so he’s out. Moses, I don’t know where he is,” Mourinho said.

“I don’t select him from Sunday. Probably I don’t select Azpilicueta because he is the same. He went from the States to Ecuador to be on the bench and then back to London.

“The only injury is David. The others will be an option and I have to assess Mata as he trained with the group for the first time. Let’s see how he feels.”
