Conte Hails Potential 'Great Striker' Morata After Chelsea Hat-trick

Have you read Trendiee Today?

The former Real Madrid man has found his feet quickly in the Premier League and is already a firm fan-favourite.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes has now failed to see his side win in their last five matches, and three consecutive defeats across multiple campaigns will undoubtedly damage their morale.

Asked if he would shake Costa's hand the next time they meet, Conte replied: "Yeah, I have no problem". Diego Costa completed his acrimonious departure from Stamford Bridge on Thursday, moving to Atletico Madrid in a deal said to be worth £53 million (about $72 million). We are rotating and the answer from my players is positive.

"I think he's a good signing for Chelsea because Alvaro is only 24-years-old". I'm not interested to continue talking about this issue.

Antonio Conte is likely to start those players that were rested in midweek while players such as Gary Cahill who played the full 90 minutes may not start.

Further attempts to discuss Costa, giving Conte the opportunity to reflect on their successful working relationship, were met with a similar response.

Chelsea pledged to take "the strongest possible action" against any supporters identified singing the song, and after the Stoke match both Conte and a club spokesman expressed their gratitude to their fans for changing the words. "Not only last season but in the period that he played for Chelsea".

Chelsea scored from its only two shots in the first half, Morata putting the team in front after just 82 seconds before fellow Spain worldwide Pedro netted his second goal in his last three games.

Alvaro Morata admits he's "very happy" with his partnership with Cesar Azpilicueta after scoring a hat-trick in Chelsea's 4-0 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

"Eden in the last game played very well. Now his injury has been overcome", Conte said.

"The story of our game is that when you go up against a side of the quality of Chelsea you have to make sure you don't have these catastrophic defensive moments and we had at least three", Hughes said.
