Chelsea fans cannot ask for a better weekend. They would have indeed left Stamford Bride contently and delightfully. It was such a performance from Chelsea against Norwich City. They had the thumping victory with seven goals. A day to reminiscence for the Blues and a disastrous day for Norwich to forget. It was a marvellous day for football betting in London.
Chelsea started the game without two key strikers. Romelelu Lukaku and Timo Werner. It was a major blow for Tuchel to lose their main strikers at the exact moment, and in the press conference, he admitted that he is not optimistic about the return date of Lukaku.
After scoring seven goals against Norwich, Chelsea is the team that scored more goals in the Premier League. They have scored 23 goals. The hat-trick for Mason Mount makes the win more glittering.
In the absence of Lukaku and Werner, Tuchel decided to have Havertz, Mount and Hudson-Odoi. Mount and Odoi looked more threatening than Havertz from the beginning. Tuchel planned to go with the 3-4-2-1 formation where Havertz will play like a false 9 with Hudson Odoi moving upfront regularly through the wings.
Norwich City was hoping to take advantage of the game after the injury in Chelsea. They are in search of a win this season. But all the calculations went wrong for Norwich.
Chelsea started the game on a high, and the opportunities started to come around. They used the first opportunity well and scored the first goal by Mount within ten minutes. The Chelsea academy duo of Mount and Hudson-Odoi was linking up well, and it helped them get the second goal within ten minutes.
The happiest moment for the Chelsea fans would have been when Reece James scored the third goal for Chelsea. The speciality of all three goals is that the academy players of Chelsea scored it. All three have a pure touch of the values of Chelsea.
Chelsea finished the first half with the advantage of three goals. But they needed more in the second half. In the next 45 minutes, Chelsea didn’t slow down the gear. The fourth goal came from Ben Chilwell, who was sitting on the bench for a long time. It was also an assurance from him that it had not gone anywhere.
Now it was time for Chelsea to score goals for fun. The fifth one was an own goal from Max Aarons. The only question that remained after the fifth goal was how much more goals would Chelsea score. In the 85th minute, Mount scored his second from a penalty. The fans wanted Mount to score a hat-trick, and in the injury time, he achieved it. Mason Mount is the current Chelsea player with the most goals under Thomas Tuchel.
