Stoke City have suffered yet another fatal defeat in their Britannia home Stadium following 0-4 loss to Chelsea FC in a Premier League match on Saturday, September 23.
Alvaro Morata’s hat-trick gave Chelsea a gallant win in the away match.
Either way, Chelsea did not miss their temperamental talisman, target man and top scorer. On Thursday, they agreed to sell Costa to Atletico Madrid. Today, his successor scored a hat-trick as they secured a win made in Spain.
Pedro got the second goal. Morata got the other three, including a second-minute opener. If he is feeling the pressure of replacing Costa, the cult hero who inspired Chelsea to two league titles, he did not show it. He was too slick and too quick for Stoke. Costa would go to war against defenders. Morata simply sprinted past them.
But, much like Costa, he is scoring when and where it matters. Arsenal had lost in Stoke. Manchester United had dropped points. Chelsea ran riot.
