The young wide duo's displays in the Carabao Cup gave Conte food for thought, and the former Juventus manager is prepared to afford the Brazilian and Belgian chances to establish themselves at Stamford Bridge, where there is a good camaraderie between the starlets and senior players. We started well and scored early.
The top of the board also includes Chelsea (+450), Tottenham Hotspur (+1000) and Liverpool (+1400).
Burnley and Huddersfield played out a goalless draw at Turf Moor with both sides lacking the quality they have shown this season.
Despite being asked what qualities he admired in the Brazilian born striker, Conte stressed that any questions pertaining to Costa lacked "respect" as he said, via the Telegraph: "I repeat now: I'm not interested to talk about the past".
Morata's goals will surely now end all talk of Costa, who has dominated much of Chelsea's narrative this year.

Conte is well aware of the Potters' strengths and insists there is no way he will take the game lightly as Chelsea attempt to close the three-point gap to leaders Manchester City.
With the record television deals in place for the Premier League, there's no wonder top clubs are doing so well financially.
With matches like Manchester United taking on Southampton and Chelsea facing Stoke City, the Premier League Saturday promised a lot of action.
A first Premier League goal of the season for Pedro, and a brilliant one at that, curling a shot into the far corner as he has done so many times in a Chelsea shirt.
"I am pleased for Alvaro's performance, pleased for the performance of the team". Not only last season but in the period that he played for Chelsea.
