One of the standout performers of the weekend, Morata's showing earned him a Pressure Index score of 91, seeing him become Chelsea's only player in the Pressure Index top 15 for the season so far.

The Goal Pressure Index is presented by Sure, Official Partner of Chelsea FC, Everton FC and Southampton FC.

Alvaro Morata bagged a hat-trick on Saturday to cap an excellent start to his Chelsea career.

The forward signed for Chelsea from Real Madrid back in July.

'I had two chances at the end of the game against Stoke [but didn't take them].

"Also I like that he's a good finisher, he "feels" the goal in every moment, he's very good and understanding which is the best position in the box to receive the ball, to understand where the ball is going", stressed Conte.

Antonio Conte's men now face a tough few days with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday before they welcome Manchester City to the Bridge on Sunday.

The Spaniard has somewhat surpassed expectations with his start to the Premier League campaign.

The 24-year-old, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in the summer, is gearing up for a huge double header prior to the worldwide break, as he prepares to face Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid in Spain before welcoming Premier League table toppers Manchester City to west London. It's a hard place to come, but we won and now we can look ahead to the Champions League'.
