Chelsea's Morata out for more than one month with hamstring injury

An injury to Alvaro Morata has cost Conte the only striker he seems to trust.

Spain are also missing injured duo Andres Iniesta of Barcelona and Dani Carvajal of Real Madrid, replaced by Las Palmas' Jonathan Viera and Real Sociedad's Avaro Odriozola, as the Group G leaders bid to earn a place at the finals in Russia.

And now Antonio Conte 's worst fear has come to life with the discovery that the damage is worse than first feared, Sun writes. Llorente, a sprightly 32, ended up at Tottenham providing much needed back-up to Harry Kane.

However, a scan from Spanish team doctors revealed a grade two myofascial injury in his hamstring. Of course you have to adapt to your opponents but we showed in the first minute that we were coming here to win the game. "It's a question you need to ask the manager, but, on my side, I'm continuing to work and trying to score goals". He showed some energy and strength against City and is more than capable inside the penalty area. He's gone to Juventus, he scored goals there.

Chelsea legend Claude Makelele believes that Alvaro Morata can go on to achieve great things at his new club, as the Daily Star reports.

Young footballers improve when they play sustained football at the highest possible level.

"This is the top level".

If Chelsea beats the Eagles on Oct. 14, it'll be a Premier League record of the worst start of a season. He's been performing way better than the last season.

As well as winless and scoreless Palace, Chelsea face Watford and Bournemouth in the Premier League, plus Everton in the Carabao Cup fourth round. It is no surprise that he would still be tired.

'I think we have to look at ourselves and try to put everything into every game.
