Even without Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, injured in the Champions League, Chelsea inflicted this Saturday a correction to the last classified, Norwich (7-0), with a triplet from Mason Mount, and reinforced their position as leader of the Premier in the 9th date.
With 22 points, Bleus will be able to watch Manchester City’s game (3rd to five points) in Brighton this Saturday, or Liverpool, 2nd to four points, against Manchester United on Sunday.
The Londoners could fear a decline in their scoring potential as a result of the injuries of their forward partner against Malmö (4-0).
But Norwich, who have not won a game in nine games and now have 23 goals conceded, offered little resistance.
With goals from the homegrown players Mason Mount (8), Callum Hudson-Odoï (18) and Reece James (42), Thomas Tuchel’s pupils left the clash seen for sentence before the break.
After the break, Ben Chilwell (57), with his third goal in the last three dates of the championship, and an own goal by Max Aarons (62) to the center of Hudson-Odoï, turned the victory into a landslide.
In addition, the newly promoted ‘Canaris’ ended the match with ten men by sending off Ben Gisbon (65), and Mason Mount from a penalty (85), and in additional time they completed the 7-0. (AFP)
