Morata's hat-trick lifts Chelsea

Atletico left back Filipe Luis played for Chelsea in 2014-15, and current Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata played in Atletico's youth squads before eventually becoming a regular with city rival Real Madrid. "You can see that today [he took] a lot of good contact and tackles and I think he's showing that he's a really good, complete player".

"The same happened with Batshuayi, it means we create chances for our striker. I am pleased for his performance and pleased for the performance of the team".

'He renewed contract with Chelsea for many years, it showed we trust him, it was very important'.

"It was good to keep our composure".

The home side, meanwhile, are hoping to replicate the success that they enjoyed against Arsenal, when they won 1-0 in August - their sole Premier League victory to date this season.

Pedro was the other Chelsea attacker to get on the scoresheet, but Morata stole the headlines, scoring after only two minutes before notching another two late in the second half to make it 17 goals in his last 19 games for club and country.

And Morata then made it six goals in as many Premier League appearances for Chelsea as he sealed his hat-trick with eight minutes remaining.

Former Republic of Ireland winger Kevin Kilbane says Morata has hit the ground running having swapped Madrid for west London.

Chelsea lost 3-2 to Burnley in their opening Premier League fixture of the 2017-18 season before a goalless draw with Arsenal at Stamford Bridge last weekend. It is sensational. He is so sharp and he plays off the shoulder of the defenders. One of Atletico's goals was scored by Diego Costa, who later played for Chelsea before recently reaching a deal to return to the Spanish club.
