Alvaro Morata ruled out of Chelsea’s trip to Crystal Palace

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata will miss tomorrow’s game at Crystal Palace due to the hamstring injury he picked up against Manchester City.

The Spaniard limped out of Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to City at Stamford Bridge and subsequently missed the international break with Spain.

The 24-year-old had a scan last week, with Spain’s medical staff claiming he had suffered a grade two hamstring injury.

He won’t recover in time for tomorrow’s match at Selhurst Park but he could return for Chelsea’s Champions League match against Roma on Wednesday.
