Summer signing Alvaro Morata pulled his hamstring against Manchester City on Saturday and 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.

The Spaniard who is reported to have suffered a grade two hamstring tear is said to be out for six weeks.

Morata would miss Chelsea’s next game against Crystal Palace on 14 October, as well as the following games below:

Chelsea v Roma (UCL) – Wednesday October 18

Chelsea v Watford (EPL) – Saturday October 21

Chelsea v Everton (EFL) – Wednesday October 25
