Chelsea suffer fresh blow as Morata will miss up to six weeks

Posted October 03, 2017

Morata was taken off after just 35 minutes as Chelsea fell to a 1-0 home defeat to City who extend their lead over the Blues at the top of the Premier League table to six points after seven games.

Spain lead Group G by three points from Italy and one win from their final two games is likely to be enough to qualify automatically for next year's tournament in Russian Federation.

Since joining from Real Madrid for £57million in the summer, Morata has scored seven goals for Chelsea and quickly established himself as one of the club's key players.

Spanish Football Federation have confirmed that Morata has suffered a grade two hamstring tear which is expected to keep him out for at least the whole of October 2017 and could be longer. "The national team doctors has underwent a scan on Alvaro Morata at the University Hospital Sanitas La Moraleja (Madrid) where the mentioned muscle injury has been detected".

The injured trio have been replaced by 36-year-old Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz, Real Sociedad full-back Alvaro Odriozola and Las Palmas midfielder Jonathan Viera.
