Chelsea boss Conte happy with goalscorers: Though Morata unlucky

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was delighted with his goalscorers for victory over Stoke City.

Danny Drinkwater, Pedro and Willian were all brought into the side, and all three players scored.

Conte said: "I'm very happy because today I had a good response from all of my players. I made rotation and when you have this kind of response you must be pleased and know you are working well with the players who play regularly and those who don't."

Conte was asked about Alvaro Morata, who was denied a goal by a couple of brilliant Jack Butland saves.

"It was a pity because for strikers it's always very important to score, but I'm more worried when our striker doesn't have opportunities or chances. In this case Alvaro did well to stay in the right place. In the away game against Stoke he scored a hat-trick, but it's very important for me to see my players having the chance to score."
