Confirming the news, the Spanish Football Federation informed that Morata has sustained grade two hamstring tear which is most likely to keep him sideline for at least the entire October or more.
And now the scans given to the Spanish FA revealed that the hamstring injury was worse than first expected.
As a result of the injury, Morata is most likely to miss two Champions League games against Roma as well as Premier League matches against Crystal Palace, Watford, Everton and Bournemouth.
Morata's injury is a huge blow to Chelsea's title hopes, with Michy Batshuayi being the only back up option in attacking. (ANI)
