Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata was substituted after 35 minutes of Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday, as he pulled his hamstring.

The 24-year-old has been ruled out of international duty with Spain and Chelsea will make an assessment of Alvaro Morata’s hamstring injury later this week.

Morata met up with Spain on Sunday, where an MRI scan at the Sanitas University Hospital of La Moraleja in Madrid diagnosed “a grade II myofascial injury in the hamstring muscles”, the Spanish Football Federation said and the results of a medical assessment by the Spanish Football Federation suggest Morata could be out for around six weeks.

The Spaniard who is reported to have suffered a grade two hamstring tear and will be assessed by Blues medical staff this week.

Chelsea will undergo tests on Morata to ascertain how long he’d really be out.
