Spain worldwide Morata left the bet365 Stadium with the matchball after a hat-trick in a commanding 4-0 win, taking his tally since joining from Real Madrid as Chelsea's record signing to six in as many top-flight games.

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.

Relations between Costa and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte began to deteriorate in January when the striker reportedly had his head turned by a big-money offer from the Chinese Super League, which soon evaporated.

"I think Alvaro performed very well".

Conte still sees room for Alvaro Morata to grow however.

"Don't forget his previous experience - he didn't play a lot with Juventus and Real Madrid but now he has a great chance to show that he is a really good striker, a fantastic striker", Conte said.

'I think Eden is improving a lot and in contention for the game [in Madrid],' he said.

"This league is not easy, above all for the strikers because during the game there is a lot of physical contact, and you must be prepared for this type of game because referees don't whistle a lot and that's good for the game". It is not easy to win away games against Stoke, this game is always hard.

"After a bad injury and surgery you need time".

Chelsea now return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they take on Atletico Madrid in Spain. "You must know that when you are in a great team, there are many players, you must be ready to play, to start", Conte explained. We are managing his recovery very well. Hazard is very important for us, so we have to make sure he is ready to play a full game.
