Chelsea got a massive victory over Norwich as the Blues put seven past Daniel Farke’s Canaries side.

Despite the absence of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, the Chelsea team showed no signs of missing the duo as the Blues went rampant at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel went for a midfield duo of Jorginho and Mateo Kovavic, and has explained why he favoured the two ahead of Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Asked about his decision ahead of kick-off, Tuchel told BT Sport: “He is right to feel so [frustrated] because he did excellently in the last matches but we went for N’Golo and Jorgi the combination in the Champions League and Jorgi did a fantastic match and now is not the time to take him straight out.

“It’s a tough one we went for Kova because Kova and Jorgi played a lot of matches together.

“Ruben is very likely to come on to the pitch and would have deserved to start.”
