Chelsea star Alvaro Morata ruled out for six weeks with hamstring injury?

Alvaro Morata injury

Antonio Conte, the Chelsea manager, claimed that Morata's withdrawal during the City game was precautionary, as the 24-year-old had suffered a knock in the Champions League victory over Atletico Madrid three days earlier.

"I don't think it's a serious problem because he stopped".

Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata has withdrawn from Spain's squad for the World Cup Qualifiers against Albania and Israel with a hamstring injury.

Chelsea star Alvaro Morata has been ruled out for 3-4 weeks with a muscle injury.

Spain have confirmed the injury after the player was assessed in a Madrid hospital.


Morata will now return to Chelsea, where he will be scanned again, but losing the record signing for any length of time will be considerable headache for Conte.

Michy Batshuayi is the obvious replacement for Morata, but Conte had rarely turned to the young striker to lead Chelsea's line.

However, Morata has got off to a flying start at Stamford Bridge and has six goals in the Premier League from just six games to his name so far.

The Spaniard will not only skip the next two games of his national team but will also be not eligible to play against Roma in the Champions League games scheduled after the worldwide break.

Chelsea last week confirmed that last season's top scorer Diego Costa had officially returned to Atlético Madrid on an initial loan that will eventually become a £57.5m permanent deal.
