Antonio Conte speaks out about Alvaro Morata after Chelsea batter Stoke

Alvaro Morata bagged his first Chelsea hat-trick as the Blues cruised to a 4-0 victory over Stoke City and moved back up to third in the Premier League standings above Tottenham Hotspur.

Five minutes are on the clock; total trebles and opponents scored against are below.

It makes Saturday's task look even more daunting for Stoke as they look to bounce back from two successive defeats, a 2-1 loss at Newcastle last weekend and Tuesday's 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat at Bristol City, which Hughes labelled "our worst performance of the season".

He added: "We have to play against Stoke then on Wednesday another really important game for us against Atletico Madrid".

"I think he played very well and to score for a striker it is very important". "I am pleased with the team also because it means we are creating chances for our strikers".

'He is playing very well, it's a pleasure for me to see him play regularly in this way. Nearly notched another couple of goals in addition to his hat-trick. Spurs withstood a late West Ham comeback to win at the London Stadium 3-2; Watford won at Swansea 2-1; Everton came from behind to defeat Bournemouth 2-1; and Burnley and Huddersfield played out a goalless draw.

Moments after collecting a yellow card early in the second half following a challenge on Joe Allen, Chelsea's Marcos Alonso provoked loud appeals for a red from Stoke fans as he brought down Mame Diouf.

Antonio Conte's side rocked up to the club's Cobham training ground on Monday in their super cars ahead of their flight across Europe. Substitutes: Peter Crouch (for Jese, 61) 6, Ibrahim Afellay (for Martins Indi, 76) 5. Atletico's goalkeeper was Thibaut Courtois, who now is defending Chelsea's goal.

Tiemoue Bakayoko is fit to play for Chelsea against Stoke City despite his involvement in a vehicle accident, while manager Antonio Conte now considers Eden Hazard ready to start Premier League games.
