Manchester United's Ander Herrera says rivals City under pressure to win title

Eden Hazard had an average shot accuracy of 55 per cent in the Premier League last season

Conte said: "Morata played a good game".

Alvaro Morata grabbed a hat-trick as Chelsea earned a fourth win in five unbeaten Premier League matches.

There was even a more tasteful new chant from the travelling Chelsea fans to serenade their new hero, with the 3,200 fans claiming "he comes from sunny Spain, he's better than Harry Kane".

Herrera believes De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world but says United need to win trophies in order to ensure they keep the player, who has frequently been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

In the week it was confirmed Costa was set to rejoin Atletico Madrid, Morata looked more comfortable than ever in the role as his successor as Chelsea's main striker.

"I repeat that now, I'm not interested to talk about the past".

An assured display from the champions threatened to unravel early in the second half when Marcos Alonso committed two fouls in quick succession, but referee Mike Dean issued just one yellow card to the Spaniard before he was substituted. The hat trick goal was a typical centre-forward's effort, with a predatory tap-in from 6 yards.

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.

Asia markets tread water as investors await news from the Fed
The Fed is expected to slow their bond-buying program at around $US10 billion a month, ultimately rising to $US50 billion. That figure would inch up by $10 billion each quarter until it reaches $50 billion in monthly reductions in October 2018.

The Premier League champions have had their squad picked apart over the summer, mostly due to Antonio Conte's eagerness to chop and change after winning the title.

Despite having won just one of its three league home games, Chelsea has been flawless on the road and stays within three points of the Manchester sides at the top of the table.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has revealed his side could face Chelsea on Saturday with just one available central defender. "Now he has overcome his injury and we have to play three games so, yes, there is the possibility to pick him".

At times, though, Stoke were guilty of overplaying and they were far too easy for Chelsea to deal with.

In an already competitive race to be the division's top scorer, Morata joined Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku on six goals from as many games.

"I think we have to be focused at what we do and not [on] others", said Conte.

"Stoke are a really good team and very strong". He's playing very well and it's a pleasure for me to see him play regularly in this way.
