Alvaro Morata has fired out a warning to Chelsea’s title rivals following their 4-0 victory over Stoke City on Saturday afternoon, report the Metro.
The Premier League champions brushed aside the Potters on their own turf. Both Manchester United and Arsenal have failed to leave the bet365 Stadium with all three points this season, but Antonio Conte’s men made light work of it.
That was, in no small part, thanks to the brilliance of summer signing Alvaro Morata. The Spaniard scored his first hat-trick in a Chelsea shirt to take his Premier League tally up to six goals.
The team’s performance was a real statement of intent from the reigning champions, and Morata believes that it sent a message to their title-race counterparts.
The Metro quote Morata, who says:
“We sent a good message to all the Premier League, Chelsea is in the fight for the title and it’s the thing that we want.”
Morata is a born winner. If he continues this electric form, and Eden Hazard gets fit and firing again, we will be right in the mix at the top.
