Fucking hell this thread has become pathetic. 

The conditions couldn't have been worse for a debut performance. But he gave Chelsea fans something to be positive about. Well done, son.

This thread is beyond pathetic. People are actually calling him Torres #2 for 20 minutes of play where he was completely isolated upfront and a penalty he missed. What would you expect Morata to do in

“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.”

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Álvaro Morata has been officially withdrawn from the Spain squad for the two World Cup qualifiers coming up during this international break after his muscular injury was diagnosed as a “grade II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.
