Mason Mount scored his first Blues hat-trick at Stamford Bridge, with Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ben Chilwell and Reece James also on target in an utter demolition that saw Thomas Tuchel’s side extend their early advantage at the summit to four points ahead of the rest of the weekend’s fixtures.
James Robson was at the Bridge to run the rule over Chelsea’s dominant display…
Had nothing to do for virtually the entire match and then came up with an outstanding save with his feet to deny Rashica.
Could hardly have experienced more contrasting games. After surviving the onslaught of Brentford last week, this was a walk in the park.
Could have played with his slippers on. That’s how rarely Norwich ventured forward.
Took the opportunity to power forward whenever he could. There wasn’t much reason to hang around at the back.
Brilliant run, touch and finish to make it 3-0. Combined well with Mount to torment Norwich.
Wonderful through-ball set up Hudson-Odoi’s goal. Absolutely bossed midfield.
Played a part in two of Chelsea’s goals and generally dictated the play with his passing and organisation. Strutted his way through.
Yet another goal for the full-back, who is about Chelsea’s most potent force right now. Made a few important interceptions on the rare occasions Norwich tried to put something together in Chelsea’s half.
What a way to end his duck. A hat-trick on the day Chelsea were without injured strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.
A brilliant goal opened his account in the first half and then he turned provider for James. Scored a penalty at the second time of asking in the second half.
Looking back to his best after a slow start to the season.
Generally looks at his best for Chelsea when leading the line. Not here. Really would have wanted to score against such limited opposition.
Got an early ear-bashing from Tuchel, but made up for that with his part in Mount’s goal and then his well-taken strike. His cross also led to Max Aarons’ own goal.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Jorginho, 63) 6
Very bright after coming on, going close with a couple of efforts.
Hakim Ziyech (Hudson-Odoi, 69) 6
Those minutes should do him good. Some dangerous efforts from distance.
Ross Barkley (Havertz, 70) 5
Forced a brilliant save from Krul and was desperate to take the second penalty after Mount was ordered to retake.
