Records were tumbled as Chelsea pummeled dreaded Norwich to remain top of the Premier League. The London Giants took down the Canaries 7-0 at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The absence of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner did not have a setback on the Blues. As expected, Norwich were weak down their wings and conceded all goals from Chelsea’s wingers.

3 goals in the first half by Mason Mount, Callum-Hudson Odoi and Reece James put Chelsea in a comfortable position. Ben Chilwell scored after the first half followed by a Max Aarons own goal. A late Mount hattrick sealed the deal on the game.

The Blues did not seem to miss their absentees. Mount, was looking forward to get on the scoresheet ahead of the game and he took it by a storm. He was the star of the show as he managed to score a hattrick and assist James to his goal.

Huson-Odoi, who is often part of a lot of criticism also scored early in the first half. His tremendous runs on the left wing opened up a lot of spaces for other Chelsea players to run trough.

Playing as the no.9, a small disappointed came to young Kai Havertz. He neither scored nor assisted anything in the team’s outstanding performance and was later subbed off in the 70th minute for Ross Barkley.

What records were broken by Chelsea?

With strikes from Mount, Hudson-Odoi, James and Chilwell, Chelsea became the first top-flight club in five years to have four different English players score in the same game. This feat is something which last occurred when Bournemouth played Hull City in 2016.

The in form Chilwell also got on the records list. According to Opta, Chilwell is now the first English player to score in four successive Premier League games for Chelsea since 2013.

Chelsea look to face Southampton in their midweek EFL Cup clash. Even though he will not have Lukaku and Werner at his disposal, Thomas Tuchel seems to be untroubled as the confident and in form Blues march on.
