Morata, who has scored six goals in seven Premier League games for his new club, pulled up 10 minutes before half-time in the 1-0 defeat by Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, complaining of discomfort in his left thigh.

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

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.

CHELSEA have suffered a huge blow after discovering Alvaro Morata could be facing six weeks out injured.

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

Speaking to reporters traveling with the secretary, a US military official said the Afghan conflict is at a "stalemate". Mattis was not at the airport at the time of the attack but was meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in Kabul.

Spain's football federation later confirmed that an MRI scan had revealed the striker had sustained a grade II myofascial injury in the hamstring.

Michy Batshuayi is the obvious replacement for Morata, but Conte had rarely turned to the young striker to lead Chelsea's line.

The Chelsea signing has already scored six goals in seven games in the Premier League to make a brilliant start to his Blues career including a hat-trick at Stoke City.

The Premier League champions travel to the bottom-placed Crystal Palace after the global window, but over the subsequent 22 days they face a further six matches.
