"I keep a special fondness for the people at Chelsea, one single person (Conte) is not going to sully my image and what I did there". Oblak was left relatively untroubled, though, such was the solidity of the players in front of him.
The German playmaker spit out his gum, kicked it up a few times, and caught it again in his mouth before giving a cheeky wink to a teammate.
Despite the sour ending to his time at the club, Costa was a resounding success in West London, helping the club to two Premier League titles in his three seasons for the Blues, scoring 59 goals in 120 appearances.
Stoke away is a hard game and last year we only won in the last minutes.
Costa also claimed Conte stopped the club offering him a new deal, and the Blues boss later admitted his mind was made up then that the former Atletico man would have no long-term place in his plans.
With David Luiz already ruled out of that game due to a three-match ban following his red card against Arsenal last week, the risk of losing Alonso as well was too great to for Conte to contemplate.
Stoke rallied, but Morata's late double put the result beyond all doubt, and Conte praised his side's gritty display. Darren Fletcher's mistake proved costly, the former Manchester United midfielder chesting the ball straight into the path of Pedro, who took one touch and sent an early finish past a helpless Butland from 18 yards.
'In Stoke's stadium, the crowd push a lot.
The archetypal Simeone system at Atletico.
Stoke continued to press, with Fletcher's poor afternoon continuing as he somehow failed to convert Shaqiri's deep free-kick from six yards.

"We deserved to win the game".
Since joining Chelsea, Morata has scored 6 goals in 6 Premier League matches, including a hat-trick in Saturday's 4-0 win over Stoke City.
