With the fit flippantly poised between the 2 groups, Chelsea’s best scorer was once subbed off within the 34th minute.
As he walked off the pitch, Morata held his left hamstring and after talking to Chelsea’s scientific personnel, went down the tunnel.
Despite scoring a overdue winner in midweek in opposition to Atletico Madrid, backup striker Michy Batshuayi was once overpassed by way of Antonio Conte.
Instead, Willian got here on for Morata.
Speaking as a co-commentator for BT Sport, Glenn Hoddle reckoned Morata was once wearing the injury downside into the fit.
He stated: “The response from the bench was once that they knew he was once going into the sport with a bit of of a fatigued hamstring.
“It’s clearly tightened up and they are able to’t take a chance.”
