Chelsea have booked a fresh scan for Alvaro Morata after concerns raised by the Spanish Football Federation.
But he'll now have two weeks to recover before Chelsea's trip to Crystal Palace on October 14.
Those games include both Champions League ties with Roma, as well as matches against Watford, Bournemouth and, most significantly, Manchester United on Bonfire night.
The City goal scorer was former Chelsea player Kevin De Bruyne, who scored with a fine left footed effort pas worldwide team mate Thibaut Courtois. He added post-match that he envisaged Morata pulling out of the Spain squad in order to undergo treatment at Cobham.
However, Spain's report on Morata's injury has raised fresh concerns their star striker could be set for a lengthy lay-off.
The usually reliable Simon Johnson reveals: "Morata has told close friends that he expects to be sidelined for a few days before resuming training next week".
Unfortunately for the Blues, Morata's injury began to flare up once again and he made the decision to take himself out of the game, according to Conte.
The injury should allow Alvaro Morata some solid rest after an exhausting start to life with Chelsea.
But it appears the £65million signing will just be ruled out of the global break according to boss Antonio Conte. Scoring seven goals in eight appearances.
