Chelsea went goal-crazy making mincemeat of visiting Norwich at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Interesting both Chelsea and Norwich are seven letter words with the Thomas Tuchel posting an emphatic 7-0 performance. Mount who opened the floodgate in the 8th minute accounted for three of the goals including a penalty with James Aarons supporting the demolition with an own goal in the 62nd minute.
The gulf in class between the two sides was there for all to see from the very first whistle as Chelsea raced out of the blocks to take an early advantage through Mount
The Blues were hardly tested at the back and the goals continued to flow at the other end as Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James sent them in at intervals.
Hapless Norwich’s woes continued after the break as Ben Chilwell continued his fine scoring run before Max Aarons’ own goal continued a torrid afternoon for Daniel Farke’s side, who also had Ben Gibson sent off in the second half
Mount grabbed his second of the game, scoring from the penalty spot at the second time of asking after Tim Krul was adjudged to have come off his line before making the initial save before the England international put the exclamation mark on his and Chelsea’s afternoon by completing his hat-trick
Victory means Chelsea will stay top for another week after emphatically extending their lead over second-placed Liverpool to four points ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s side’s Super Sunday clash with Manchester United.
