Champions League goals for Chelsea:

Batshuayi - 2

Costa - 2

Morata - 1

its really baffling to think that Costa only has 2 goals for us in the Champions League in 3 seasons, you would have expected him to score a lot more than that, Michy in his first champions league game with us already bags 2 and is equal with Costa, ok sure, it didnt help to get knocked out by PSG twice in a row in the last 16, but its really poor by Costa´s standards. It just goes to show how underwhelming we have been at this stage and we need to do better in the future, i have a very good feeling about our current chances, but first let´s make sure we qualify from the group, then we will see.

“It’s a muscular problem. I don’t think it’s serious. He said to me: ‘Coach I prefer to stop, otherwise I risk having a bad injury.’ I don’t know. The doctor in the next few days will check the situation but I don’t think he will be available for the national team.”

Hope it's nothing serious, we're going to need very good play from our strikers to keep up with the Manchester clubs.

Smart thinking from him there. Just wondering - this type of injury usually takes a few weeks for a recovery, correct? Something between 4-6 weeks, so hopefully, hopefully, it is not that bad. We need his presence up front, not just for his goals but also the link-up with Hazard. They started having some chemistry.

Álvaro Morata has been officially withdrawn from the Spain squad for the two World Cup qualifiers coming up during this international break after his muscular injury was diagnosed as a “grade II myofascial injury to the hamstring muscles”. There are a few scary words in there, including the tendency for hamstring injuries to repeat.

Grade II is the middle of three grades assigned to soft tissue injuries and that automatically means multiple weeks out. Of course the fact Morata was sent back to Chelsea after joining up with the Spain was already an indicator that the injury was not minor and not something he could deal with in just a few days. Every injury is different, but grade II injuries can last up 6-8 weeks in bad case scenarios.

The term myofascial means that the injury is not a ligament or tendon injury, but rather an injury to fascia that surrounds all muscles and international organs. If any of you ever had plantar fasciitis, you will unfortunately be quite familiar with how painful and annoying fascial injuries can be. As with most soft tissue injuries, recovery from myofascial injuries is usually measured in weeks, not days, and sometimes months.

Damn. :(

This can have a huge impact on us if it's serious. Didn't Diego have a similar hamstring injury a couple years ago? Or was that an actual hamstring tear? I can't remember.

'Should be back for Crystal Palace' and 5 minutes later 'Multiple weeks out'...

These injuries usually take weeks to recover, as I said immediately during the game. I can only hope but damn this is bad.
