The Daily Express is reporting that the defending Premier League champions won’t be able to call upon their summer signing’s services for the London derby at Selhurst Park.
Morata suffered a hamstring injury in the first half of Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Premier League leaders Manchester City in their last top-flight fixture before the international break.
The Spain international limped off the pitch with an apparent hamstring injury as Antonio Conte’s side succumbed to their second defeat of the 2017-18 season.
According to the report, Morata has suffered a grade 2 hamstring injury which will rule Morata out of action for the trip to Palace despite the striker embarking on an “intensive” rehabilitation regime.
The 24-year-old has made an impressive start to the Premier League season following a return of six goals in seven games in the English top flight so far.
The Premier League title holders signed Morata in a £58m deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.
Morata scored Chelsea’s equaliser in a 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in the Spanish capital last month.
