Michy Batshuayi scored a hatrick against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, and just three days later Alvaro Morata followed up with another hatrick of his own.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is pleased with his strikers and said after the victory against Stoke: “I think he played very well and to score for a striker it is very important. The same happened with Batshuayi, it means we create chances for our striker.
“I am pleased for him and the performance of the team. It is not easy to win away at Stoke, like last season we struggled and won at the end. Today we started very well and were very good to suffer. It was good to keep our composure. We created many chances. The final result was 4-0 but it was a tough game.”
Morata now has six goals and Batshuayi four goals so far this season.
