Chelsea got a deserved win over Norwich to maintain our lead at the top of the table.

A Mason Mount hat-trick, coupled with goals from Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James, Ben Chilwell and a Max Aarons own goal was enough for Chelsea to put seven past a hapless Norwich side.

A disappointed Daniel Farke admitted after the game that his team’s performance was very poor and has now vowed that they must roll up their sleeves and work hard after receiving this battering from Chelsea.

Speaking to BBC Match of the Day after the Game, Norwich coach, Farke said: “It’s an unbelievably tough day. In all areas we were not good enough for this level. We spoke about this before the game. We were nowhere near to what we can play. We were too slow in the head. The goals we conceded were not even too difficult to defend against. For this world-class level we were not competitive enough.

“It’s important to always put pressure on Jorginho and Kovacic and also to protect the runs. I wish we’d done better in certain situations. We didn’t show enough quality to be competitive.

“At this level you always have pressure, but I’m just focusing on how I can help the team. It was clear before the game that it would be a tough task. At home to Leeds – these are the type of games where we need to pick up points.

“It’s not the right moment to start a discussion [about relegation]. It’s not the time to talk too much, it’s time to roll the sleeves up and work.”
