Mason Mount was in top form today as Chelsea defeated Norwich 7-0.

Mount who hadn’t scored this season bagged a hat-trick against the Canaries and it was his first career hat-trick.

According to Opta Stats, Mason Mount is now the 20th different player to score a Premier League hat-trick for Chelsea, with only Arsenal (21) having more different hat-trick scorers in the competition.

Also, Mason Mount is the 16th different player to score for Chelsea in all competitions this season, more than any other Premier League side.

Speaking to BBC Match of the Day, Mount said: “It’s a special day, not just for me but because of the scoreline and the way we played. These early kick-offs can be very difficult at times. There’s not much time to recover, but the performance we put in and with me getting a hat-trick – it was a special day.

“A lot of the boys have scored this season. I said in midweek it was about time to get on the scoresheet, and today was obviously the day. I was fortunate today.

“I just got told [Gareth Southgate] was watching. It’s brilliant for me and obviously to get my first goals of the season and an assist, it was a good day.”

“The most important thing for us is to focus on every game. We’ve got massive games coming up and if we go from game to game, we can keep racking up points. Our goal is to be up there and we want to be a big team.”

Mount’s second goal was a penalty, and having missed the first kick with Tim Krul’s leg outside the line, Mount finished it off in his second attempt.

On the retaken penalty, Mount said: “He obviously guessed the right way, but luck was on my side today that I got to take it again. I didn’t think he was going to go down the middle [for the second one].”
