Chelsea manager Antonio Conte wants more from hat-trick hero Alvaro Morata

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte wants more from hat-trick hero Alvaro Morata”

Conte decided not to give Eden Hazard his first league start of the season, perhaps with the Wednesday's Champions League fixture against Atletico Madrid in mind.

The treble was his first since he joined the English champions for a club record £70m fee in the summer.

Conte was impressed by Morata's performance, but the Blues boss wants his forward to maintain that level throughout the entire season.

Only four of Stoke's starters were in the side that faced Chelsea in March so they looked predictably disjointed even though there was no shortage of effort.

According to the BBC, the move, which will be completed in January, is subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical. He scored a hat-trick and for a striker this is very important, and don't forget the last game it happened the same with Batshuayi.

"The agreement is subject to the signing of a contract between the club and the Spain global". "That a player of his status wants to come to Atletico Madrid". "He wasn't ready to play with us [against Italy and Liechtenstein], that was the reality and what we had to deal with".

Also Saturday, Real Madrid visits Alaves while Athletic Bilbao is at Malaga.

The Spanish La Liga club did not reveal where Costa would play in the coming months since Atletico can not recruit any new players until January 2018 in compliance with a Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer window ban. Costa has not played for 98 days since he appeared for Spain in a World Cup Qualifier against Macedonia in June.

Pedro scored Chelsea's other goal as Antonio Conte's side maintained its ideal away record in the league, keeping it within three points of United and City at the top of the table.

Chelsea remain three points behind leaders Manchester City, who they play at Stamford Bridge in what could be one of the season's formative games next Saturday.

Further attempts to discuss Costa, giving Conte the opportunity to reflect on their successful working relationship, were met with a similar response.

Morata's goals will surely now end all talk of Costa, who has dominated much of Chelsea's narrative this year.
