A brilliant hat-trick from Alvaro Morata helped Premier League champions, Chelsea, to a dominant win over Stoke City, their third successive away win this season, according to a BBC report.
Antonio Conte’s side took the lead after only 82 seconds when Morata showed composure to latch on to Cesar Azpilicueta’s long ball over the top and slotting it past goalkeeper Jack Butland.
Stoke gifted Chelsea a second when captain Darren Fletcher, trying to chest the ball back towards his own goal, set up Pedro, who drilled home.
A wonderful run from the halfway line from Morata, ending with a smart finish from an angle, gave Chelsea their third before the Spaniard completed his hat-trick from inside the six-yard box.
Clinical Chelsea, who converted all four of their shots on target, remain in third place, three points behind leaders, Manchester United and Manchester City who won their matches against Southampton and Crystal Palace respectively.
