Chelsea playmaker Mason Mount was at his brilliant best as the Blues thrashed Norwich City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. Thomas Tuchel’s side ran riot against the hapless Canaries, who shipped seven goals over the course of the 90 minutes in a shocking performance from the Premier League’s basement boys.
The gulf in quality between Chelsea and Norwich could not have been higher, with the dominance of the hosts clear to see from the first whistle.
Mount opened the scoring after just eight minutes before Callum Hudson-Odoi doubled Chelsea’s lead shortly afterwards.
Reece James added a third shortly before the interval, with Ben Chilwell’s second-half contribution and a Max Aarons own goal seeing the European champions go five up after 62 minutes.
Their sixth and seventh goals came from Mount, who dispatched a penalty at the second time of asking before completing his hat-trick in added time to cap off a perfect afternoon for Chelsea.
