Morata provides injury update to Chelsea fans

There was a worrying moment for Chelsea fans on Saturday when Alvaro Morata limped off the pitch during the team’s Premier League match against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

The Spaniard has been a welcome addition to Antonio Conte’s team, scoring seven goals in all competitions so far this season.

However, he was unable to make an impact at the weekend due to being substituted in the 35th minute.

It was a disappointing day all round for the West London outfit as they ended up losing 1-0 following Kevin De Bruyne’s single strike.

Attention has since turned to the extent of Morata’s problem, with a recent report in The Mirror claiming that the striker could be on the sidelines for six weeks.

It has since been confirmed by the Spanish Football Federation that the 24-year-old has suffered a grade II hamstring tear.

The Metro claims that Morata hinted that he was targeting a return for after the international break when Chelsea take on Crystal Palace in the league, but he has since edited the Instagram post.

‪I have no time to lose! Working hard towards recovery!😁
