Chelsea: Alvaro Morata Nets Slick Hat-Trick As Blues Cruise Past Stoke

Diego Costa Chelsea Atletico Madrid

With a tough trip to Spain to take on Atletico Madrid coming up on Wednesday, Conte faces a decision whether to start the 26-year-old or not against Diego Simeone's men - something he will only do if the Belgium worldwide is "ready".

The Blues, who won the Premier League title in Conte's first campaign at the club last term, kicked off their European campaign with an impressive 6-0 thrashing of Qarabag at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

The Blues winger is a key player for Conte, and played a part as the reigning Premier League champions put Stoke City to the sword in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. "Now he has a great chance to show that he is a really good striker, a fantastic striker".

Speaking at his post-match news conference, Conte said: "Alvaro performed very well". "During the game there's a lot of contact, you must be prepared for this type of contact".

"He adapted very well to this league, now he needs to continue to work because he has only just started down this path".

Not once did he fumble or throw an interception, unlike Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston , who tossed three picks on Sunday. Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carries the ball during the first quarter against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at U.S.

Having taken four points from home games against Arsenal and Manchester United, Stoke could hardly have anticipated their awful start when they conceded on 83 seconds to a neat finish from Morata, his fourth goal of the season and first with his boot.

Quoted by the Evening Standard, Conte revealed that Hazard was in contention to dive in at the deep end when the squad travel from west London to Madrid to face Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday. "After his injury and surgery you need time, and if I make the decision (to start him) it is because I think he is ready". I don't see any problem [with Hazard on the bench].

"I think we are managing him very well".

The Chelsea gaffer stated emphatically that his players are ready for the big game.
