Alvaro Morata to be out for six weeks due to hamstring injury

Alvaro Morata has decided not to risk further injury and has pulled out of the Spain squad for their World Cup Qualifiers against Albania and Israel.

The Spanish FA has just released a medical bulletin that states that Morata has picked up a grade two hamstring injury that will force him out of the pitch for nearly one month.

Spain conducted their own tests on the 24-year-old on Sunday at the Sanitas University hospital of La Moraleja in Madrid, where a scan apparently revealed the myofascial injury.

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

Other experts say Morata could face eight weeks out, but Chelsea have still not placed an official time frame on his comeback.

Morata could miss two Champions League games against Roma and Premier League clashes against Crystal Palace, Watford, Everton and Bournemouth which is a big chunk.

Conte is now left desperately short of forwards as he attempts to guide his side back towards top spot in the Premier League after falling six points behind leaders City.

"Conte wanted more players but for the team that won the title last season there is not much change and they've added Morata who is on fire at the minute".

Conte wanted to bring in Fernando Llorente from Swansea City, but Chelsea were beaten to his signature by Tottenham Hotspur and Tammy Abraham was allowed to join the Welsh club on loan.
