Chelsea 7-0 Norwich City: The Blues Blow Away Canaries To Keep The Lead
Mason Mount scored his first Premier League hat-trick and assisted another goal as Chelsea moved four points clear at the top of the table with a 7-0 win over Norwich City.
Jorginho teed up Mount to open the scoring in the eighth minute.
The leaders doubled their advantage through Callum Hudson-Odoi, who slid in from Mateo Kovacic’s pass.
Chelsea then made it three before half-time when Reece James brilliantly dinked the ball in from Mount’s assist.
Norwich substitute Milot Rashica tested Edouard Mendy before Chelsea added a fourth goal on 57 minutes through Ben Chilwell, his fourth in as many matches.
Hudson-Odoi then had a hand in Chelsea’s fifth as his shot deflected in off Max Aarons.
Norwich, who remain bottom, also ended the match a man down after Ben Gibson was shown a second yellow card before Chelsea added a sixth through Mount’s retaken penalty.
Though Tim Krul had saved the original spot-kick, he was adjudged to have been off his line when the ball was struck.
Mount completed his hat-trick in stoppage time, to inflict the Canaries’ joint-heaviest Premier League defeat and secure a third successive victory for Chelsea, and taking them on to 22 points.
