Alvaro Morata limped off the pitch after 35 minutes today with what seemed to be a hamstring injury, leaving Chelsea fans concerned.
The Spanish striker scored 6 Premier League goals and one in Champions League so far in this season, and his absence would be a huge blow for the team.
But after the game Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wanted to calm all the ones concerned for Morata’s conditions, claiming the injury seems not so serious:
“I hope it is not a serious injury for Morata,” the Italian manager said after the match.
“It is his hamstring but we don’t know if it is a serious problem.
“When you lose this type of player it is not simple,” Conte continued.
“When you play three massive games in only seven games you must consider this, it can happen a muscular problem, but I do not think it is serious.
“Alvaro stopped before it became a serious injury.”
