Morata Finally Scores Hat-Trick With His Foot As Chelsea Thumps Stoke City In 0-4 Thriller

The fuss is finally over as Alvaro Morata finally scores with his feet and not only one goal nor two but he scored his first Chelsea hat-trick as they humbles Stoke City at Bet360 Stadium in a 0-4 thriller. 

Questions has been asked for sometime now if Chelsea new striker, Alvaro Morata will be able to score with his foot as all his Chelsea previous goals came as a heading but woooo .. what a way to shut up your critics.

It took Morata just 81 seconds to make his mark and then completed his first hat-trick in English football in a dazzling display of expert finishing. Not a bad start for a bloke looking to prove himself after Diego Costa finally rejoined Atletico Madrid.

On the back of Costa finally leaving, Antonio Conte will have been delighted his replacement scored so early and then went on the rampage. In only the second minute, Cesar Azpilicueta punted the ball long, Bruno Martins Indi appeared to be stuck in quicksand and Morata moved the ball inside the area with one touch before steering it past an exposed Jack Butland.

It was a decent finish and after three headers, this one was with his right boot. Pedro’s second strike was even better and it was helped by a string of errors with Darren Fletcher the main culprit. Erik Pieters delivered a weak header into the air, Fletcher chested the ball into the direction of Morata and Martins Indi was once again pedestrian.

In the second half, Stoke fans demanded the dismissal of Marcos Alonso after he fouled Mame Biram Diouf having already been on a yellow card. As a precaution, with the home fans screaming for blood, Alonso was substituted for Gary Cahill.

Meanwhile there was a little bit of scare when Chelsea goal keeper, Thibaut Courtois appeared to be knocked out cold while contesting a cross… only to play on for the rest of the game.

Fletcher’s bad day was compounded further when he missed an easy chance with Diouf somehow sending the follow-up into the side-netting. Glen Johnson and Fletcher were then outpaced badly by Morata who charged into the area before delivering a fine finish to make it 3-0. With eight minutes left, Morata completed his hat-trick when Azpilicueta chested the ball into his path.

What a way to win the day.
