Tmicheals Blog ›› Stoke City 0-4 Chelsea: Champions Earn Deserved Three Points After Alvaro Morata Scores Inside 90 Seconds Before Pedro Doubles Advantage

In the time it's taken Diego Costa to fly to Madrid and sign for Atletico, Chelsea fans have forgotten all about him. Replacement Alvaro Morata bagged a splendid hat-trick and was serenaded by the club's noisy travelling support.

They sang: 'He comes from sunny Spain, he's better than Harry Kane', rather than the unsavoury chant from earlier in the season.

Morata was brilliant from start to finish, scoring his opening goal after only 83 seconds and mantaining his levels so he could poach numbers two and three towards the end.
