I don't think it's a serious problem because he stopped before it will become a serious injury.

Morata, who has scored six goals in seven Premier League games for his new club, pulled up 10 minutes before half-time in the 1-0 defeat by Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, complaining of discomfort in his left thigh.

Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata has withdrawn from Spain's squad for the World Cup Qualifiers against Albania and Israel with a hamstring injury.

Chelsea last week confirmed that last season's top scorer Diego Costa had officially returned to Atlético Madrid on an initial loan that will eventually become a £57.5m permanent deal.
