Alvaro Morata has adapted well to Premier League - Antonio Conte

Share

The summer signing claimed a hat-trick, with the three goals all scored with his feet, to complete a comfortable afternoon for the Premier League champions as they prepare for a potentially pivotal week.

"I think every single player was important last season, we won the title, we won the league, maybe it was a big surprise, and also to reach the final of the FA Cup". Stoke are a really good team and very strong.

Chelsea scored from their only two shots in the first half, Morata putting them in front after just 82 seconds before fellow Spain global Pedro netted his second goal in his last three games. "Now he has to continue this way to be a great striker", said manager Antonio Conte, who on Friday showed himself so enamoured by his new striker that he said he was the sort of polite young man any father would like his daughter to marry. "The final result was 4-0, but I think that it was a hard game".

They scored eight runs in the eighth inning, behind several clutch hits, to turn a battle into a 10-4 rout. Jordan Zimmermann was tagged with the loss after giving up three runs on five hits in four innings.

In an already competitive race to be the division's top scorer, Morata joined Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku on six goals from as many games.

Mark Hughes doesn't mince words when discussing Stoke's horrendous defensive showing in their 4-0 loss to Chelsea. He's a really good guy.

"I am pleased for his performance and pleased for the performance of the team".

To promote the show, a "spaceship" created to resemble the show's USS Discovery was flown over New York City on Saturday night. Star Trek is about to return to television for the first time in over a decade, and fans surely won't want to miss it.

A last-ditch Stoke clearance stopped substitute Eden Hazard's cross-shot from finding Morata, but the 24-year-old was not to be denied his hat-trick.

Morata was at his scintillating best at the Brittania Stadium on Saturday, helping himself to a hat-trick as the Blues maintained their impressive form with a 4-0 victory.

The Spain global, 24, has now scored six goals in as many appearances since replacing Diego Costa at Chelsea. "We want to thank him for his efforts last season with us, but not only last season, in the whole period he played for Chelsea", the Italian tactician added.
