EPL: Chelsea, City record big wins, Lukaku nets victor for United

Antonio Conte and his Chelsea players went through their paces on the Stamford Bridge pitch

Antonio Conte warned Alvaro Morata not to rest on his laurels after the Spain striker hit his first Premier League hat-trick in Chelsea's 4-0 demolition of Stoke City.

Antonio Conte: It will be a real tough game, ' Conte added. He scored three goals.

In the week that Diego Costa departed for Atletico Madrid, Alvaro Morata continued his impressive start to life at Chelsea in style. It is not easy to win away against Stoke and I remember we struggled here last season but won at the end. 'He scored a hat-trick and for a striker this is very important, and don't forget the last game it happened the same with Batshuayi. Now it's important to rest well and prepare for another game against Atletico Madrid.

On Saturday Conte's words were more prosaic but equally heartfelt.

The Spanish wing-back had been booked for a foul on Joe Allen before then committing a reckless foul on Stoke forward Mame Diouf less than two minutes later.

But the Paris Saint-Germain old boy was frequently caught out of position, and was sent off with 20 minutes remaining after being shown a second yellow card for needlessly scything down Andy Carroll.

"There is the possibility now to try to pick him for these games".

Chelsea and Manchester City were the biggest winners on a goal-packed day of Premier League action, while there were also victories for Tottenham, Manchester United, Watford, Everton and Liverpool.

Still, Alonso nearly fell afoul of Dean seconds before being replaced, with the defender foolishly taking a throw-in when the referee had already signalled it as a Stoke ball.

Alvaro Morata managed to net an early goal for Chelsea within 90 seconds as the Blues were able to beat Stoke City comfortably.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes went into the match short of central defenders with Kurt Zouma, on loan from Chelsea, ineligible and Ryan Shawcross, Geoff Cameron and Kevin Wimmer all injured. "We must be pleased and satisfied to win away against Stoke because they are a strong team at home. However, this is a process for him, when I speak about a lot of room for improvement it also means this aspect, to be more aggressive".
