Spain worldwide Morata left the bet365 Stadium with the matchball after a hat-trick in a commanding 4-0 win, taking his tally since joining from Real Madrid as Chelsea's record signing to six in as many top-flight games.

The Spanish striker then rounded off the win with two goals in the final quarter-hour to take his Premier League tally this season to six.

Morata accelerated past Glen Johnson and Darren Fletcher before clipping the ball beyond Jack Butland for his second goal.

Alvaro Morata is showing that Chelsea were right to trust him with succeeding Diego Costa, with the striker continuing his impressive start in the Premier League.

The song praises Morata, but it also contains Anti-Semitic slurs directed at rival club Tottenham Hotspur. I am also pleased about this.

"In this stadium the crowd push a lot and I want to thank our fans because I repeat they helped a lot the team today".

"Now he is involved totally in our style of football and our idea and he is very strong", Conte said. It means we create chances for our strikers.

The Belgium playmaker made his third Premier League substitute appearance of the season at Stoke, following his recovery from a broken ankle, having completed 90 minutes in the 5-1 EFL Cup win over Nottingham Forest. It was great also to change it (the song). "The final result was 4-0, but I think that it was a hard game".

But Bruno Martins Indi, the only central defender who was available to start against Chelsea, has joined Ryan Shawcross, Geoff Cameron and Kevin Wimmer on the injured list after limping off with a groin problem.

Despite having won just one of its three league home games, Chelsea has been flawless on the road and stays within three points of the Manchester sides at the top of the table.

"There were extenuating circumstances with our difficulties with personnel at the back and with Bruno coming off".
