Morata scored his first Premier League triple against Stoke City

The defending champions have made a comeback from the disappointing draw against Arsenal last week. Antonio Conte's team has made a statement, and how!

Taking on an opposition that has pinched points off both Arsenal and Manchester United at home this season, the Blues showed their class while stamping their authority on the game.

Spanish sensation Alvaro Morata's hat-trick has now given him seven goals in seven matches. He began destructing Stoke City's defence right from the second minute of the game, when he scored a beautiful goal past Jack Butland.

The most striking aspect of Morata's clinical performance was his composure. He did not dwindle, he did not dawdle and he did not disintegrate for a second.

He did not look like an apprehensive international star taking his first dive into the rough trenches of English football. He looked like a maverick ready to take on the world with character, confidence, and tranquillity.

In fact, the entire Chelsea unit looked imperious this week. The Hazard-less starting XI created problems for the Potters from the word go. To answer a popular question, they could most definitely gain those 3 crucial points on a cold night at Stoke!
