Minute Commentary
90' FULL TIME REPORT
Chelsea (4-1-1) eased to victory over Stoke (1-2-3) on Saturday as a hat-trick from Alvaro Morata helped them on their way to a 4-0 thrashing of the Potters. The Spaniard netted his fourth, fifth and sixth goals of the season while Pedro also scored as Antonio Conte's side made it nine goals from two games. The visitors were ahead inside two minutes as Morata took down a lovely long ball from Cesar Azpilicueta and raced away from Bruno Martins Indi before slotting into the corner. Pedro made it two when he picked up on a poor chest down from Darren Fletcher and beat Jack Butland from 25 yards. Morata doubled his tally and ended the game as a contest on 78 minutes as he accelerated beyond Erik Pieters and sent a delightful finish around Butland from the angle. The former Real Madrid and Juventus man completed his treble four minutes later as he was once again set up by Azpilicueta - the fourth time he has assisted Morata this season - and the striker duly converted. Chelsea move up to third while Stoke drop to 15th.
90' FULL TIME
The full time whistle goes and it's all over. Stoke 0-4 Chelsea.
90' THREE MINUTES
There will be three minutes added on.
88' OFF THE LINE
Chelsea almost get a fifth as Morata dink the ball over Jack Butland but there is Glen Johnson to clear off the line.
86' LOOKING FOR FIVE
The visitors are looking for a fifth now as they have the ball in the box but Stoke have numbers back and deal with the threat.
82' GOOOAAALLl!!!
Hat-trick for ALVARO MORATA. A sensational ball over the top of the Stoke defence from Fabregas sees Cesar Azpilicueta chest the ball into the striker who pokes home.
78' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Game over. Chelsea make it 3-0 and it's ALVARO MORATA who bags his fifth league goal of the season. He picks up possession in the centre of the field and goes alone, accelerating past Erik Pieters before beautifully dinking past Jack Butland from a narrow angle.
76' CHANGE
Change for Stoke now as Bruno Martins Indi comes off in place of Ibrahim Afellay.
72' MISS
What a miss from the hosts now as Darren Fletcher completely fluffs his effort and when unmarked six yards out, heads the ball against his foot and sends it wide.
70' SUB
Chelsea make a second change now as Pedro is replaced and goes off to a standing ovation from the travelling fans. Cesc Fabregas is on.
67' STOPPAGE
Stoppage in play now as Thibaut Courtois falls awkwardly on his neck and looks dazed and confused. He receives treatment but is deemed okay to continue by the medics.
65' OVER
Stoke come close as a long ball is launched into the box which Peter Crouch knocks on to Mame Diouf, but he can only put it over the bar when sliding in.
62' CHANGE
Stoke City make their first change of the game and on comes Peter Crouch for the ineffective Jese.
58' SUB
Antonio Conte has seen enough. He brings off Alonso before he can get himself sent off. Gary Cahill is on.
55' STILL ON
Stoke fans can't believe Alonso is still on the pitch as the wing back clearly trips Diouf as the Senegalese forward turns the Spaniard. Mike Dean bizarrely decides against booking him for what is a blatent booking every day of the week.
51' BOOKING
The first booking of the game is awarded to Marcos Alonso as he leads with his arm when challenging Mame Diouf. There was force as his elbow caught the striker. He's lucky not to be off.
46' SECOND HALF
The second half gets under way and there are no changes at the break.
45' HALF TIME REPORT
Chelsea have a comfortable lead at the break at the bet365 Stadium thanks to efforts from Alvaro Morata and Pedro the Spanish duo have seemingly put the visitors out of sight of a determined Stoke side. Morata put Chelsea ahead after just 80 seconds as he latched onto a long ball from Cesar Azpilicueta before finishing coolly beyond Jack Butland. Pedro doubled the lead when he capitalised on a poor chest down from Darren Fletcher and beat Butland from 20 yards. Mame Diouf came close for Stoke with an acrobatic effort but that's as good as it got for the hosts in the first half. Join us soon for the second half.
45' HALF TIME
The half time whistle goes and it's 2-0 Chelsea at the break.
45' ONE MINUTE
There will be one added minute.
43' WIDE
Stoke looking good since the second goal and Joe Allen keeps play alive after the move looked to have died down. He manages to bend a cross over to Diouf who attemps an ambitious overhead kick which flies just wide of the post.
39' CHANCE
The hosts win a free kick again and the ball is hoofed into the area in hope but no Stoke player is there to bring it down and Antonio Rudiger has plenty of time to control and pick a pass to get upfield.
34' FREE KICK
Stoke win a free kick and have a good chance to try and halve the deficit but Xherdan Shaqiri's curled effort ricochets off of Andreas Christensen and goes behind for a corner. Stoke fail to create any danger from the set-piece.
30' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Chelsea have breathing space as PEDRO makes it 2-0. A high ball is chested past Bruno Martins Indi by Darren Fletcher and the ex Barca winger is quickest to the loose pass and finishes into the corner from 20 yards giving Butland no chance.
26' CHANCE
Joe Allen loses the ball in his own half to N'Golo Kante and the Frenchman sends a through ball for Willian to chase before he crosses for Morata but Erik Pieters deals with the threat well.
22' FREE KICK
Willian is lucky to escape without a booking as he barges Bruno Martins Indi over as the Dutchman tries to bring the ball out from the back. Careless from the Brazilian.
18' BLOCKED
Xherdan Shaqiri maneuvers some space for himself and gets a shot off which is blocked by Andreas Christensen.
14' FOULED
Chelsea are on the attack again and Willian is deemed to be a little too aggressive when trying to hold the ball from Glen Johnson and the referee signals for a home free kick.
10' STRONG
Stoke come forward down the left and Xherdan Shaqiri looks to knock the ball beyond Victor Moses but the wing back holds strong and wins the ball back before playing out from the back.
6' CHANCE
Big chance to equaliser for the Potters as some neat passing play sees Mame Diouf get into the box. He goes to square to Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting for an open goal but there is Andreas Christensen to intercept and clear well.
2' GOOOAAALLL!!!
What a start for Chelsea! A long ball over the top from Cesar Azpilicueta sees ALVARO MORATA race away from Bruno Martins Indi and control possession well before slotting past the onrushing Jack Butland. 1-0 Chelsea.
1' UP AND RUNNING
The game kicks off.
0' PREVIEW
Stoke host Chelsea this afternoon at the Britannia as Mark Hughes' side look to build on a solid start to the season. Five points from five games is a respectable return from what has been a tricky first few games on paper. Chelsea have improved since their dismal showing against Burnley on the opening day and have won three and drawn one since that loss. Both of their away games this season have ended in 2-1 victories and Antonio Conte may be tempted to play some of the kids that featured in the 5-1 win over Forest in midweek. The Potters fell to a lacklustre 2-0 loss at Bristol City on Tuesday and will be looking to get back on track this afternoon. Join Liam Fountain from 3pm BST for all the live action and commentary from the game.
0' TEAM NEWS
Kurt Zouma is ineligble against his parent club while Kevin Wimmer is out with a hamstring injury. Ryan Shawcross and Geoff Cameron are also nursing knocks and will not feature. Pedro returns for the hosts after injury while David Luiz is banned after his red card against Arsenal. Tiemoue Bakayoko is fit despite his car crash after a training session earlier in the week.
