The Spanish forward had to be taken off after 35 minutes against the Citizens on Saturday evening, as the Blues went on to lose 1-0.

However, Conte claims it was the player's decision to come off as he didn't want to risk getting seriously injured.

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

"He said to me, 'Coach, I prefer to stop myself otherwise I risk a bad injury'. I don't know.

"The doctor now in the next days has to check the situation, but I don't think he's available for the national team.

"It's normal when you play three massive games in only seven days, you must consider this aspect [fatigue].

"We needed to take this risk because Morata for us is an important player."
