Gameweek 7 of the Premier League gave us the opportunity to watch the derby between Chelsea Fc and Manchester City. The game has been promising much since both teams (alongside Manchester United) are at the top of the table. Chelsea had a big match earlier in the week in the 2nd round of the UEFA Champions League. They celebrated against the main rival of the group, Atletico Madrid with a score of 1-2. Manchester City had a slightly easier match. They hosted Shakhtar Donetsk and won 2-0.

On paper, both teams seemed to be equal. Manchester City traveled to London without Sergio Aguero, who was injured in a car accident two days before the match.

However, the "Citizens" managed to dominate in both halves of the game, defeating Chelsea 0-1. The goalscorer was City's playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne.

Read Chelsea Blog pointed out that the crucial moment for Chelsea was the injury of Alvaro Morata, who called for a substitute at the end of the first half.

Worse than expected

Chelsea FC's manager, Antonio Conte was convinced that Alvaro Morata's injury sustained during the game is not serious. However, the results of the Spain medical team say differently. It's not a tendon, nor a ligament, but a muscle. The recovery should take about one month, maybe even more.

For the Spanish national team, the injury won't be a big problem, as the chances for them to drop the first place in Group G are minimal. But Chelsea is worried, who have to play as many as seven matches in the following 22 days after the national break.

The first one should not be a problem because the 'Blues' will travel to Crystal Palace. In October, they play two games against AS Roma in the Champions League. After that, they host Watford and Everton in the League Cup, and then they travel to Bournemouth. As of November 5th, there is a big derby against Manchester United. Days will decide.

Worth the money?

Alvaro Morata came to Chelsea FC this summer. Club president, Roman Abramovich, had to open the bag and pay $ 76 million for the striker. This made the Spaniard Chelsea's most expensive player ever. Previously, this record was held by his compatriot Fernando Torres.

It seemed as if Conte did not trust his new No.9 in the beginning. In the Super Cup against Arsenal, and in the first round of the Premier League against Burnley, Morata started from the bench. In that match against Burnley, Alvaro Morata came in off the bench and scored his first goal for the 'Blues'. He also managed to make one assist, thus cementing his place in the starting 11. Since then, he has scored 7 goals in as many matches. It is worth pointing out that he scored a goal in his debut in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid.

Although he's still young, Soccer analysts predict a brilliant career. He showed that he is good enough for the Premier League and that he is worth every penny invested.
