Chelsea Forward Alvaro Morata to miss six weeks due to hamstring tear

Chelsea Forward Alvaro Morata faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to the hamstring injury suffered against Manchester City at the weekend.

Record signing Morata was forced off after 35 minutes of Blues’ 1-0 home defeat to City. The 24-year-old, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid during the summer for £70million, was withdrawn from Spain’s World Cup Qualifiers against Albania on Friday and Israel on Monday because of the problem.
