In the second half things went from bad to worse when Ben Chilwell netted his straight fourth goal for the club before Max Aaron turned the ball to his own net as Mount completed his hat-trick.

Norwich were down to 10 men when Ben Gibson was sent off after receiving the second yellow card of the clash.

Even though the Blues were without the services of Lukaku and Werner, they managed to come up with a solid strike force thanks to the link-up between Mason Mount and Hudson-Odoi.

The win left saw Thomas Tuchel side take pole position with 22 points from nine games. Norwich were condemned to the bottom of the table with 2 points from nine matches.

Chelsea on Mount’s future

Chelsea is reported to have termed Mason Mount untouchable when it comes to transfer with the board preparing to issue him a new contract very soon.

“Untouchable”. This is how Chelsea board and Thomas Tuchel consider Mason Mount, it’s hattrick time today. His contract [2024] will be discussed again soon. Mount is in ‘renewals list’ with many other players – it will take some time.” Said Fabrizio Romano
