Champions League: Chelsea ready to take on Atletico Madrid - Conte

Diego Costa Chelsea Atletico Madrid SKY SPORTSDiego Costa Chelsea will receive over £50million from Atletico Madrid

At the King Power Stadium the club was forced to condemn fans who sang an anti-Semitic song in adulation of the 24-year-old aimed at fierce rivals Tottenham.

"I am pleased for his performance and pleased for the performance of the team". I think now he's involved totally in our style of football, in our idea. He scored a hat-trick and for our strikers it's very important.

"Don't forget his previous experience - he didn't play a lot with Juventus and Real Madrid but now he has a great chance to show that he is a really good striker, a fantastic striker", Conte said.

Morata had previously asked Chelsea's fans not to sing the song about him and they responded by dreaming up a different chant in his honour.

Despite having won just one of its three league home games, Chelsea has been ideal on the road and stays within three points of the Manchester sides at the top of the table. "This game is always hard". "The final result was 4-0, but I think that it was a hard game".

"Now it's important to rest well and prepare for another game against Atletico Madrid which will be a big game for us".

Conte confirmed goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had suffered no ill-effects from a heavy landing on his neck during the second half and will be fit to face his former club Atletico.

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. "Everyone knew that I wanted to rejoin Atletico Madrid and I'm very grateful for the effort that [club chief executive officer] Miguel Angel Gil Marin has made".

"There were extenuating circumstances given our difficulties in terms of available personnel at the back and that's the difficulty we had to deal with".
