Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata

GETTY Alvaro Morata has been in great form for Chelsea

The Spanish striker limped out of the Blues' 1-0 defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, but it appears that a suspected hamstring problem may be worse than anticipated.

He explained to 888sport: "I still think that Chelsea have quite a lot of depth and they remain title challengers".

Alvaro Morata has pulled out of Spain's squad for their upcoming clashes with Albania and Israel due to injury.

Should Morata be ruled out for any length of time, then more questions will be asked over why Chelsea did not sign more forward cover during the summer transfer window.

Morata has had an excellent start to life in the Premier League, scoring seven goals in nine games for the Blues since his £60m move from Real Madrid this summer.

Conte wanted to bring in Fernando Llorente from Swansea City, but Chelsea were beaten to his signature by Tottenham Hotspur and Tammy Abraham was allowed to join the Welsh club on loan.
