October 23rd, 2021 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Thomas Tuchel’s men blew the Canaries back to Norwich with their tails in-between their legs as Mason Mount scored a hat-trick for Premier League in the thrashing of Daniel Farke’s side.

The west London side were 2-0 ahead inside 18 minutes as Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi scored their first goals of the season, with Mount turning provider to set up Reece James for a third goal before half-time.

Fellow defender Ben Chilwell scored for the fourth successive game to extend Chelsea’s lead shortly after the restart, before Max Aarons’ own goal and Mount’s late double wrapped up the win.

Norwich’s afternoon was summed up by the sight of manager Daniel Farke with his hands outstretched on the touchline in utter bemusement at his side’s defending after Chilwell scored Chelsea’s fourth.

The scoring started for the hosts early when Mount’s strike from outside the box flew past Tim Krul on the 8th minute.

10 minutes later, Callum Hudson-Odoi who terrorised Ozan Kabak and Max Aarons, got onto the end of a perfectly weighted ball by Mateo Kovacic before slotting it past Tim Krul for Chelsea’s second.

The third and fourth came either side of half-time thanks to a delightful chip from right full-back Reece James and a power drive from left full-back Ben Chilwell.

Max Aarons tried to intervene on a Hudson-Odoi effort but the wicked deflection took the ball away from Tim Krul, hit the post and rolled in making it five.

Mount eventually tucked home a penalty on the 85th minute after having to retake his initial effort which was saved because Krul was in front of the line.

The English superstar then completed his hat-trick when Ruben Loftus-Cheek unselfishly squared the ball to Mount leaving the net empty for him to tap it in.
