English Premier League to take notice. Chelsea went all out against Stoke to secure the three points, but the home team made things difficult in the first half despite conceding two goals.

The first goal came from Alvaro Morata in just two blistering minutes. If you thought Morata didn’t have it in him to score with his legs, then think again. His first touch was great, but the finishing was spectacular. Not to mention, he did it despite mounting pressure from the defender and the goalkeeper.

Stoke refused to take a beating

After conceding the first goal, Stoke went into overdrive as the team did everything it could to draw level.

Stoke City put up a good fight by countering well and keeping Chelsea in a defensive posture, but the team's captain, Darren Fletcher, made a huge mistake by losing the ball to Pedro outside of the box.

Pedro has failed to put his name on the score sheet since the beginning of the league, so with the hunger to end his drought, the prolific forward would not be denied. He landed a fantastic shot to the left corner of the box to put the Blues two goals ahead.

Stoke pushed forward again, but couldn’t reduce the deficit before the halftime whistle.

Alvaro Morata takes charge

It’s safe to say that Morata is getting a handle on English football and Antonio Conte’s style of play. He was always there lurking to make Stoke pay for any possible mistakes, and that he did.

The third goal came after Stoke City players lost the ball, and Morata picked it up and made a blistering run against four defenders all by himself.

The defenders couldn’t stop him as he marched on for a second goal. So far, it’s the most impressive goal scored by Morata, and he did it with that clinical right foot.

It didn’t take long for Chelsea’s star striker to make it 4-0. A chested ball from Cesar Azpilicueta within the box to Morata, gave the Spaniard his first hat-trick for Chelsea, signaling to all that he's here to stay.

Overall, Chelsea went out to score goals and secure three vital points, and the team did not fail in that regard.

There was no room for error against a Stoke City team that performed well against Manchester United. The Blues had to go in with the intention of coming out with three points to stay in contention for the league title.

Chelsea is currently third in the standings, while Morata is second on the top scorer's chart with six goals and two assists. If he continues like this, he could become the overall top scorer by the end of the season.
