Speaking after the final whistle Chelsea boss Antonio Conte praised Blues striker Alvaro Morata, who scored a hat-trick in the 4-0 win at Stoke this afternoon:
“I think he played very well and to score for a striker it is very important.
The Italian manager hailed the team as well:
“I am pleased for him and the performance of the team. It is not easy to win away at Stoke, like last season we struggled and won at the end.
“Today we started very well and were very good to suffer.
“It was good to keep our composure. We created many chances. The final result was 4-0 but it was a tough game.”
