Chris Sutton has backed Chelsea to win the Premier League following the 7-0 thrashing of Norwich on Saturday afternoon.

A Mason Mount hat-trick, as well as strikes from Englishmen Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James, Ben Chilwell and a late Max Aarons own goal, sealed a comfortable victory for Chelsea.

The Blues beat Norwich on Saturday afternoon without two key attackers, Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, who picked up injuries on Wednesday night against Malmo in the Champions League.

“This is why I believe Chelsea will win the Premier League – their squad is so strong and their academy players are flourishing,” Sutton told BT Sport.

“Today’s performance was excellent, but last month the performances have not been there. That is a tremendous mentality to have. They have a squad ready to compete at all levels.”

Next for Chelsea is a Carabao Cup game against Southampton on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.
